Thanks all so much for being a part of such a fun get together. I will be working on getting pics from this past event up on this page to remember these great times. Also! There are more photos you can find by following the links below to Facebook, where so many kind folks have posted amazing pics and memories. For those new to this event-it an open invite (we ask you use discretion when inviting) ‘celebration of life health and happiness’ with live music, camping, and rafting on the scenic Delaware river with every campsite within 300 ft of the water! Just a great group of like minded people who want to ge away from it all for a weekend! Rafting, restaurant and bar on site, games it’s just the best that simple. Limited at 500, we have already pushed past the halfway mark in only 3 years! I aim to limit the size simply to keep the quality of your experience while there. This began as a small get together of about 80 and has simply grown organically ever since-simply amazing and we love you for it. Hope you can join us! Anyway more soon…<3 k
