Our Annual Memorial Day Weekend EXTRAVAGANZA is here!
Kick off the summer the right way! Join us for an unforgettable weekend! At these prices, you can't afford to stay home! We have taken over the entire 156 acre property in Pennsylvania just for our group.
This retreat boasts (<--- click here for pics) serene accommodations, 2 huge water slides dropping into a full size pool, and a private lake with lots of boating. You can enjoy the camp style beach, activities, sports and water sports or choose to go off grounds where you can partake in a variety of activities that no one place can possibly offer! At Not Your Typical Weekend Corp., we look out for YOU & YOUR pocket! We create events where you get the biggest bang for your buck!
Our experienced team have been helping various singles group for years, icluding Saw You at Sinai. We are the innovators of many programs that different groups use today, yet we constantly strive to make our events better (<--- click here to see our FAQ's) and stay in sync with today's crowd. Therefore, we combine our experience with the NEW young staff members to create events like no other! Our last event, Chanuka, had over 300 people in attendance - where many have never attended an event before. Ages spanned evenly from young 20s to mid 30s. And a few of our sponsors were in their early 40s. We are very strict about ID checks - we apologize to those that can't get in. Our group is for people in their 20s & 30s (if you miss the cut, we will allow those up to age 42 to attend).
Are you tired of meeting the same people? Having gone to the same events? Tired of getting to an event & things aren't as promissed? COME JOIN US from May 23rd to May 27th and meet a whole new crowd!!! Our new hosts are working hard to bring YOU their friends - so get ready to meet amazing new people! We pride ourselves on delivering what we promise. OUR expirienced staff, will get you settled in, within minutes of your arrival!
In the past few years, we have gone to Hotels such as Aloft, Hilton, Marriott, Camp Lavi, The Georgian in Lake George, as well as others. This year, because many are struggling with the economy, Hurricanes Sandy & Irene, we have decided to go the economic route! We BRING YOU the best of everything! Budget concious prices, action packed weekend, and for those that want to spend a little more - a variety of things to do within a short drive.
The last few years, Memorial Day Weekend was quite hot! Therefore we have made sure to reserve a place where every room has air-conditioning! :)
On the way there (be it Thursday or Friday), you will enjoy breathtaking views and the scenic Delaware River. From the moment you arrive, you will be catered to by our staff. You will enjoy delicious catered Glatt Kosher & Chalav Yisroel foods (<--- click here for menu) by Oldek Caterers of Cedarhurst all weekend long, who's kitchen is under the hashgacha of Rabbi Idstein. You can enjoy the beautiful pool and private lake.

Click on the links below for each location.
NOTE: Being that it is Memorial Day Weekend, some of these places will be packed. You may even want to buy tickets in advance. However, the drawback is, once Sunday comes you may or may not want to go. THEREFORE, we will be posting a sign-up sheet Saturday night, where you will be able to arrange car rides & get group discounts. NYTW will not be responsible for any off ground activity - however, we will help you with contact info & sign-up sheets. We will have printed sheets of information for the off-campus activities.
This is are exhilarating obstacle courses set in the natural environment-right on the slopes of Camelback Mountain Resort! The 100+ aerial obstacles are suspended between trees and guests stay securely clipped into a safety cable as they journey through the trees. The games in the courses include zip lines, suspended bridges, scramble nets, swinging logs and much more! This is a true Pocono Mountains Adventure!
Come soar on the longest twin Zip Flyers in North America from the top of Camelback Mountain. You will be secured in a five-point harness and soar over the treetops and get an amazing view no matter what season of the year. The Zip Flyers are open all year so you can ride over the skiers and boarders in the winter, see the first blooms of the spring or go for a ride when you are here in the summer!
Come zig and zag down Camelback Mountain in the 4500’ Mountain Coaster. You control the speed in your cart and can hit up to 25 mph while you careen down the mountain, whirling around two 360º turns-at some points, 30 feet in the air!
Try the most exhilarating, heart pounding adventure ride in the Pocono Mountains! Zip through and OVER the trees, 85 feet above the ground! The two 1000' Plus zip lines are now open for you to fly above the ski slopes in thirty seconds flat!! Come be the first of your friends to fly down the mountain.
The scenic Mountain Segway tour takes you through the ski trails of Camelback Mountain Resort. The breath-taking, one and a half hour tour is the best way to see the beautiful Pocono Mountains or maybe you would rather sit through the tour. Try the Hummer Tour which is a 45 minute ride with a stop at the peak of Camelback Mountain Resort. Maybe you don’t ski or snowboard, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get to the top of the mountain!
Your team will be armed with special paintball guns to hit opposing players. You will play different types of games such as Capture the Flag, Attack and Defend, Total Elimination and more! Kittatinny Paintball features exceptional mountaintop playing fields overlooking the beautiful Delaware River. We'll provide you with everything you need and take you to the top in a military troop transport truck - this ain't no bus ride, Jack!
You will skydive between 10,000 and 13500 feet. Freefall with elegant views of the Pocono Mountains, Delaware Water Gap and the New York Horizon. Experience Tandem Skydiving, Experience ADRENALINE!!

Worried about transportation? We will be arranging carpooling (there will be a suggested fee to help cover the cost of gas and tolls) as well as there is bus service right to the area from Port Authority all day long- Click this link for bus schedule: Martz Trailways to Stroudsburg Park and Ride.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE BUS:
1- If traveling by yourself, we have arranged for SPECIAL discounted tickets. In order to get them you will need to follow these intructions!
a) Call Martz Stroudsberg (570)421-3040 & tell them you are with Not Your Typical Weeekend or NYTWevents and the ticket will only cost $50 (instead of $70+)
b) The above must be done at least six hours prior to your departure.
c) You will then go to the NY Port Authority (bays 23/25/27/29/31) and speak with a porter there - they will have your ticket.
d) any issues, you can tell them to reach Lisa in sales (but she assured me there shouldn't be any problems).

If we do not have a ride for you, then you will have to take the bus & therefore no refunds will be given due to lack of carpooling.

As always, in the event we need to cancel, a full refund will be issued!
Join us for a "stalker FREE" weekend! :)
At NYTW events, you have no reason to fear creeps & stalkers! Although we do not know each & every person, personally, Yaakov has a very strict rule about those that bother others - if you annoy someone you get ONE warning & then you are asked to leave! To date, we never had to deal with stalkers :)

If you cancel between April 27th & May 2nd there will be a 50% refund

Care to UPGRADE your reservation? Not a problem!

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, once discounted rooms are sold out, we cannot honor those prices!
Sorry, but due to the low cost price, for those wanting to come for only part of the time will still have to pay the same price.
