We hope to enjoy a sunset on the highpoint, have our signature pancake breakfast, a watermelon feast by the Jersey summit and of course there is the Saturday night banquet!

Our headquarters and hotel on the Delaware River have spectacular views of the summit. We hope to offer something for everybody.  It doesn’t matter if this is your first highpoint or if you are just getting back from Everest.  We welcome all ages and abilities.
