The 2014 Harvest Festival will be held at Camp Shehaqua on September 19-21. The director will be Michael Diamond. Save the date!

Week 3 offers a special new educational track for adults this year. Guest speaker Ron Pappalardo will bring his "First Blessing Seminar" to Camp Shehaqua. This is a unique opportunity to experience his workshop in the beautiful atmosphere and spirit of camp, and at a great price, too! Normally, participants pay $130+ to participate in Ron’s two day seminars, but for Shehaqua campers of Week 3, it's only $50!

Some of the trademarks of Shehaqua have an interesting background that many new members of Shehaqua Family are not familiar with. Even some veterans may not remember where things originated. The compass rose logo that was featured for many years on our T-shirts and is still present on our website, our mugs, and other places was created in 2000 by Steve Martin. He and his wife, Lydia, and their daughters were members of our very first camp in 1995 and continued to attend for several years until the family moved from Pennsylvania to Maryland. Lydia grew up in Allentown and they were members of our local small group before small groups were a recognized part of our church structure. Steve was working as a graphic artist at Majestic which designs and manufactures team uniforms for major league sports.

Well, it is that time of year again... Shehaqua Family Camp Registration is now open! This is Shehaqua Family Camp's 20th anniversary! We are so excited to offer three amazing weeks of Family Camp, as well as our increasingly popular Shehaqua Weekend.

No matter which week you are able to attend, there will be ample opportunities for amazing experiences. Keeping true to the Shehaqua spirit of community, every camper is asked to lend a helping hand in the every-day operations of the camp. The more we all chip in, the more we all enjoy the power of community!

Some special tracks will be available in addition to the family camp experience. Click the "Read more" link and keep reading for more information about the tracks.
