From Elke Noll:

Dear fellow campers,

I assume that all would agree, that we want to keep a standard of healthy nourishing foods at Shehaqua Family Camp.

I deeply appreciate all the willing and dedicated helpers who showed up over the years. I could have never done this alone.

With this in mind, I would like to invite anyone who has an interest or calling in healthy food to step forward to take on more of a leadership role in food service.

We have created a tentative schedule for the Spring Gathering trip. You can find it here.

  • It now includes the schedule for both the rafting and paintballing group and the group that is staying at Shehaqua.
  • Schedule updated May 13, 2011

Reminder - you need to pay for the Spring Gathering by May 2nd if you are going on the rafting/paintball trip.

We've updated the website. The biggest changes are the new tour of Shehaqua Family Camp and the online education booklets.

One other change is that we can actually change the banner for different sections of the site. Right now, that's not happening because we don't have enough banners for the Winter Retreat, Spring Gathering, or Fall Festival. But if someone would like to create one, here are the specs:

  • The size is 1050 pixels by 150 pixels.
  • The logo is not part of the banner, but the words "Live for Joy" are. If you're on a different section of the site, then the words can be replaced (e.g. "Shehaqua Winter Retreat").
  • Please send the webmaster a high resolution copy as well as a web-sized version, in case we expand the header.

If you notice anything wrong with this website, feel free to contact the the webmaster.
