Special Tracks for Week 3:
The third week of Camp Shehaqua will go back-to-the-basics. Our camp will be during the BC Sportsfest at Barrytown, therefore many of the usual assortment of teens and young adults will miss our camp. During the founding years of Shehaqua the oldest BC's were middle school age and the adults were the teachers, group leaders, song leaders and did every other camp job. It was the first time I really saw the essence of the Divine Principle applied to society. The impact that 5 days of camp had on the life of my family is unparalleled.
—Jeanne Carroll, Camp Director Week 3
Women’s Circle—Exploring Our Journey (by Jeanne Carroll): In this age of frenetic information energy it is healing to spend time quietly walking in nature, chatting with others over dinner, and watching the forest dim in the twilight. The third week of Shehaqua will offer a renewed zest for all. We are inviting women who would be interested to share their tales of femininity, as everyone is a unique expression of the Divine and it is invigorating to share our stories with others.
