Shehaqua Spring Gathering

The Spring Gathering is one of the Shehaqua Family’s newest programs. Back in the early days of Shehaqua Family Camp, a few families would meet at Camp Shehaqua in spring to prepare for the Family Camps in summer. Although there wasn't a specific program, these meetings were a lot of fun for both the adults and kids that attended, and more and more people kept coming.

In 2010, a specific Spring Gathering program with presentations and sport activities was offered for the first time. In the following years the program was further developed, with an emphasis on adventurous activities for young adults. In the past, these activities have included whitewater rafting, paintballing, large capture-the-flag games, hikes, and scavenger hunts.

A separate track for families with younger kids is also being developed. If you are planning to attend with young kids, please check with the program director first to find out more details. The Spring Gathering takes place at Camp Shehaqua in Hickory Run State Park over a weekend in the second half of May. It starts on a Friday night and lasts until Sunday afternoon.
