This year's Harvest Festival will truly capture the spirit of the harvest! Come celebrate with us the turning of the seasons, and the good fruit we've borne this year! The Harvest Festival will be chock full of meaningful and outrageously fun activities and contests, including candle making, tie dye, pumpkin painting, a watermelon eating contest, foot race and, of course, the Grand Slam Hoedown Jam!! Be sure to wear your "country finest" because we will vote to see whose outfit really captures the spirit of the hoedown! So drop your books, workload and stress, and come be with family and friends in God's incredible creation at Camp Shehaqua.

Struggling through classes and/or work? Need a break? The Shehaqua Spring Gathering is just around the corner! From May 17–19, we will have a retreat that is both stimulating and relaxing. This year we are switching it up, and staying at Camp Shehaqua for the entire workshop. There will be two tracks:. One set of activities will be designed for families with young children, and the other track is aimed at young adults. The theme of the workshop is "Dare to Live," and it will offer a challenging experience that will bring you closer to your peers. The young adults group will take part in a game of epic proportions, as well as a challenging hike. There will also be camp fires, testimonies and everything else you know and love about Camp Shehaqua.
