Poconos Retreat Offers Heimishe Families a Chanukah Vacation to Remember

Poconos Retreat Offers Heimishe Families a Chanukah Vacation to Remember

by Mindy Cohn

The Willowbrook Split Rock Family Resort in the Poconos has been exclusively reserved by Heimishe families for more than three years, offering thousands of happy families a beautiful retreat, including for Shabbos Chanukah. 

Rockland Daily spoke with the Program Director regarding the uniqueness of this year's Chanukah getaway. 

What makes this retreat so unique? 

Besides that, it's the perfect vacation where families arrive at the resort and don't have to go anywhere else the entire time you are with us. The fact that this weekend is not a money-making endeavor but one that supports Igud Bnei Torah kollel families and rebbeim, makes everything even better. 

This is our third year of arranging vacations for thousand of satisfied families, including many, many happy repeat customers who are always after us during the year to find out when we are open for registration. 

What is there to do at the resort

There is a fully packed schedule that all ages will enjoy, including an on-site indoor waterpark that can be enjoyed by babies through adults and a swimming pool - with separate hours, bowling, arcades, courts, fields, and playgrounds. There are many nearby attractions that visitors can take advantage of after making an early check-in or after checking out if they are so inclined.

What kind of amenities can a family expect? 

Families will enjoy a spacious suite with adjoining suites available. Each suite will comfortably sleep six with an option for more. There is a separate master bedroom, a jacuzzi or hot tub, and a kitchen. We also provide a hot plate.

Are meals provided?  

We supply a Shabbos Box prepared by Satmar Fleish in Boro Park. 

We have full-family, affordable pricing plans for this Chanukah, including all amenities.

How do you manage to keep the price so low? 

While our goal is to raise funds to subsidize the Kollel families and Rebbeim who come for a vacation, when we open for the public over Chanukah, we understand all families need a vacation at an affordable price. 

That being said, the price is still so phenomenal we have had countless people ask after we've quoted the price for the suite what the rest of the cost is. The answer is always - that's the entire price for your stay. You will not have to spend a dime more on any attractions or anything else.

All the extras, cots, blow-up mattresses, whatever it takes to make your family comfortable - it's all included in that one low price.

How would you describe the overall vibe of the resort? 

It's a heimish crowd and a happy, healthy, wholesome atmosphere. We have music playing outside wherever you go. I was even told by a family last year that used to pay tens of thousands of dollars for their vacations in other resorts that there's a certain something about the atmosphere of our resort in the Poconos and our upbeat and positive staff and guests that you can't find anywhere else. 

Best of all, all proceeds are going to tzadakah so that knowledge adds even more to the whole experience. 

Sounds too good to be true? Just give us a try. 

Join us for Shabbos Chanukah in the Poconos from Friday, December 8 - Sunday, December 10.

Just a few rooms left! Book here before rooms are sold out!
