Cascade Lake 4-H Camp

Donnelly, Idaho

Thank you, Kathy Lauer, for 40 years of volunteer service at camp!

Cascade Lake 4-H Camp is what it is today because of our board president, Kathy Lauer. We had the opportunity to recognize her volunteer service at our 2023 Fall Fundraiser. The Board of Directors presented an award for her four decades of leadership at camp, and next spring, we will name our main lodge the “Kathy Lauer Lodge.” We thank Kathy for her service and the impact she has had on the lives of thousands of Idaho youth.
