CAMP LACKAWANNA

Tunkhannock Pa.

For the past 12 years we have enjoyed getting together for a weekend of relaxation, bible study, and recreation. Camp Lackawanna is located on the banks of the Susquehanna River between Tunkhannock and Mehoopany. It offers a beautiful surrounding, and plenty of hiking and fishing. The Smyrl Lodge, where we stay, has a spacious gathering area, full kitchen, and 12 bunk rooms that, because of our enrollment, end up being individual rooms. We have found this retreat to be a time when men/boys fathers/sons can come together for some quality time.

We reconvene in the later afternoon to eat supper. In the evening we have another bible Study session, followed again by relaxation with the same format as the night before.
