Jan 24, 2019

Tannersville, PA. (Jan. 23, 2019) – In January, 2018, Camelback Resort in Tannersville, PA, launched Camelback’s Adventure of a Lifetime Sweepstakes, a year-long program that awarded $250,000 in prizes. The sweepstakes encouraged daily entries with three prize levels: Instant Win, Quarterly and Grand Prize of 20 years of vacations, worth over $160,000.

On January 22nd, Camelback surprised Darla Steinhauer from Poughkeepsie, New York, with the news that she won the Grand Prize in Camelback’s Adventure of a Lifetime Sweepstakes. Every year for the next 20 years, Darla and her family can enjoy overnight stays at Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, recently voted USA’s #1 indoor waterpark, as well as overnight stays at The Kartrite Hotel & Indoor Waterpark (opening in the Catskills in 2019); Camelbeach Waterpark season passes; and Camelback Mountain winter season passes. The grand prize package is valued at over $160,000. 

“Winning the Grand Prize means so much to us,” said Darla Steinhauer, Camelback’s Adventure of a Lifetime Sweepstakes, Grand Prize Winner. “My fiancé and I are raising my two grandchildren and they love Camelback. They keep asking if we can go back. We love taking them on mini vacations and winning the Grand Prize means we’ll be able to ‘take them back’ for many years to come!”

Four Quarterly prize winners were drawn throughout the year with the last one drawn on January 3rd 2019. They will each receive all-inclusive stays at both Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark and The Kartrite Hotel & Indoor Waterpark. Plus, tickets to countless adventures at: Camelbeach, PA’s largest outdoor waterpark; Camelback Mountain featuring snowtubing, skiing and more. Quarterly prizes packages are valued at over $7,600.

Quarterly Winners:

First Quarter: Randi Sullivan, Raritan, NJ

Second Quarter: Theresa Haley, Lebanon, PA

Third Quarter: Anna Lannon, Gloucester, PA

Fourth Quarter: Todd Ingham, Kerhonkson, NY

1220 Instant win prizes were also awarded, daily throughout 2018 for resort-wide adventures ranging from overnight hotel stays to day passes to Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, Camelback Mountain (skiing, riding and snowtubing), Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark and Camelback Mountain Adventures (Mountain coaster, Alpine slide, Zip lines and Haunted houses). Every daily entry was additionally entered into the Quarterly and Grand prize drawings.

“We believe life needs more adventure,” said Ame Cameron, VP of Sales and Marketing for Camelback Resort. “And since it’s impossible to fully experience our four seasons of fun in one visit, the year-long, Camelback’s Adventures of a Lifetime Sweepstakes was the perfect opportunity to showcase our year-round, epic adventures.”
