For years, Dutch Springs has been committed to helping organizations within the Lehigh Valley.  Our community initiative, Dutch Springs Cares, will focus on assisting charities and service organizations that focus on aiding children and families within the Lehigh Valley.


Splash for a Cause

During the month of June, Dutch Springs partners with a number of non-profit organizations within the Lehigh Valley with a portion of qualifying ticket purchases being donated to the designated organization.  Enjoy Dutch Springs Aqua Park and Sky Challenge knowing that you’re splashing and smiling for a cause!

For qualifying ticket purchases to be donated to the below partners, guests must obtain a coupon specific to the weekly charity and present it to the Admissions Office at Dutch Springs.  The coupon entitles the guest to a discounted admission to Dutch Springs.  For every ticket purchased, Dutch Springs will donate a portion of the proceeds to the designated charity on the coupon.  Coupons may be obtained from the charity directly or through Dutch Springs Facebook page and email blasts.

Miracle League of the Lehigh Valley

 

Dutch Springs has joined The Miracle League of the Lehigh Valley for its annual Halloween Bash, held at Jaindl Family Park.  Trick-or-treating can often be unpleasant for many Miracle League players.  Houses are often spread far apart and walkways to doors are often long and may include steps that many of the children are unable to handle.   This event allows Miracle League to bring the neighborhood to the players!

Dutch Springs and many area organizations come together and decorate stand and tents in fun themes to ensure the players get the feel that they are trick-or-treating in a neighborhood!  Many guests dress to match their theme, as they hand out candy and treats to the 450 children and parents that enjoy the event.
