The Poconos & Ricketts Glen, Pennsylvania // July 17-20 2018


Jim Thorpe

This historic northeastern town in the heart of the Poconos boasts plenty of outdoor adventure as well as museums, shopping and dining. It is also the location of the meet & greet that the instructors will be hosting at their chalet on arrival day. 

Ricketts Glen State Park 

The majestic falls trail system showcases 22 named waterfalls along a rugged mountainside. We will hike to multiple waterfalls with shoots and instruction by Twyla, Atticus and Henry!  

We will also relax in the scenery with a picnic style lunch near the waterfalls. 

The Pococnos

The Pocono Mountains are home to rolling hills, thriving woodlands, forested peaks, breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls, and miles of winding rivers.

We will utilize some of the most beautiful landscapes the Poconos have to offer for another full day of exploring and shooting.

Group Size:

We are partial to small workshops. Keeping our group small allows for more individual instruction. We feel this benefits all of our adventurers. There are a limited number of 12 seats available for purchase. 


There are two airports within close proximity of Jim Thorpe, Pa. 

  • Lehigh Valley International Airport (approximately 47 minutes)

We will create a fb group in which all attendees can connect and make plans for car pooling and lodging together. For your consideration, here are a few fabulous places to room together or alone! Whichever route you decide to take, we recommend the Jim Thorpe area for proximity to the instructors chalet, and a centralized location to our adventure destinations.
