Waterfront & Wonderful

Here at Silver Birches you can visit the Recreation Center during summer and fall to take out one of the resort’s kayaks, SUPs or canoes. Group SUP sessions are offered on Mondays and on Wednesdays, join a group kayak lesson. Other summertime wellness activities include lakeside yoga on Tuesdays and aqua Zumba on Thursdays. Every evening throughout the year we raise a glass to a day on the lake with a special Sunset Champagne Toast. All that fresh air works up an appetite, so there’s a picnic every Tuesday at noon during summer. On Thursday evenings, find a spot by the lakeside fire pit and indulge in s’mores. From Memorial Day through Columbus Day, Sunday’s Lakeside Live brings entertainment to The Deck at The Dock on Wallenpaupack, the resort’s restaurant. During winter and spring the activities move indoors when you can take part in a book swap on Wednesday and join in the PubOlympics competition on Thursdays.
