For those of us who visit, or have visited Camp Shehaqua and
Camp Daddy Allen at Hickory Run State Park, we share a special,
common bond. Long summer days, camp fires, ventures to the
boulder field, smores and good friendships.
Other memories include the old and out of date showers, the need
for new stoves and for on-going improvements to the Camps. These
camps really are a treasure, one that is subsidized by the State
of Pennsylvania, but this funding has never been adequate.
In response to this, a couple of years ago, we formed a Chapter
of the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation
www.paparksandforests.org, “The Friends of Hickory Run State
www.friendsofhickoryrun.org to raise funds specifically for
Hickory Run and these Group Camps. Our “Friends Group” is just
that a group of people who want to help improve this public
facility for future generations.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
1. Purchase a Commemorative Brick
These commemorative bricks include 3 lines with a maximum of 18
characters per line. You can also designate if
the brick is to be placed in Camp Shehaqua, Camp Daddy Allen or
at a location in the Park, which will be determined by the Park
Management. You would enter that information in the comments
section on the next page.
The fund will go toward replacing the stoves at Camp Daddy Allen
and Camp Shehaqua.
