Whether making the most of special Easter activities like Easter brunch or dinner and church services or year-round activities, you’ll be able to build an Easter escape that’s perfect for you and your group.

There are many churches in the Poconos Mountains region. Special church services will be offered, including sunrise services. Choose a church that is close to your accommodations and contact them regarding service times. Some may even offer special outdoor services, so dress in your Easter best and for the weather if you choose to attend one. Make sure to bring a mask and social distance at both indoor and outdoor activities when possible.
