The first-prize winner will receive a check for $100. The second- and third-prize winners will each receive a free Shehaqua T-shirt.

Choosing a Winner

All submissions will be shown to a group of judges composed of members of the Shehaqua Council, Shehaqua Operations Team, and a number of additional volunteer judges.  Additionally, all designs will be posted on our Facebook page and the public will get a chance to vote for their favorite designs by liking them. (The artist will remain anonymous, so this will not become a popularity contest.) The Facebook votes and the judges' votes combined will determine the first, second, and third place winners.

Become a Judge

If you are interested in being one of the judges, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. However, you cannot participate in the contest and be a judge at the same time.

Family Camp has reached maximum capacity and registration is now closed.

Registration for a waiting list is available in case any spot opens up.

The time has come again for this year's annual Harvest Festival hosted by Camp Shehaqua! It will be co-hosted by Denthew Learey and Gabby Hochmuth from September 15th-17th! This event has always been my personal favorite amongst the Shehaqua events, because it comes with such a rich spirit and atmosphere. There's something so special about being bundled up in a warm flannel in the natural, cool air with some good company.

The Harvest Festival has the perfect atmosphere for personal reflection, gratitude, and a whole lot of fun! This year we'll be hosting a live band with square dancing as well as many other festive games and activities that are fun for the whole family! Come and enjoy this year's Harvest Festival with us, and kick off the Autumn season the right way! We will be looking forward to seeing you there!

Hi all,

If you tried to register for camp today or yesterday, you were unable to do so because the registration part of our website was not working. The reason was that our web hosting provider changed some security settings without informing us. The issue is solved now, and registration is working again. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused, and thank you for your patience. We are extending the Early Bird deadline by two days, so you can register and pay until midnight of June 2 and still get the Early Bird fee.
