Practice Location:

Beach Lake Volunteer Fire Department, 25 Milanville Road, Beach Lake, Pennsylvania 18405

The Fire Department is a huge room right across the street from the Pine Grove Cottages. Beach Lake is a low-key farming/vacation area in eastern Pennsylvania, about 2 1/2 hours from NYC, reached via Route 17 or I-84 (see map).


We have reserved 10 cabins at Pine Grove Cottages in Beach Lake PA. Check in on Friday Aug 14, checkout Fri Aug 21. Cost is per-person, dependent upon final occupancy of the cabin. Pine Grove Cottages is the friendly bungalow colony with lake, pool, boats, etc. where we had a fine time last year.

The cabins each have 2 bedrooms and a foldout couch, thus accomodating potentially 5 people. Some of the bedrooms have twin beds, some have doubles. So if you are willing to share a bedroom you can cut the cost of lodging. Please state your lodging preference when registering for the workshop.

In addition, there are a few hotels within walking distance of the practice space, and numerous B&Bs and campgrounds in the area.



Workshop price: $300. First payment of $100 due by June 1st, balance payable at the workshop. Please email lenny@longrivertaichi.org if you have any questions.
