Hi Friends of Cascade Lake 4-H Camp,

Idaho Gives – a program of the Idaho Nonprofit Center – is designed to bring the state together, raising money and awareness for Idaho nonprofits. Due to the increased need of support to the nonprofit sector, because of COVID-19 the online giving period has been extended!

Can you take five minutes to give to Cascade Lake 4-H Camp?


You don’t have to wait until April 29. The site is active, and you can make a donation now.

After you’ve donated to Cascade Lake 4-H Camp, we encourage you to also support other nonprofits that do work that is important to our community.

Your donation of any amount will help. We are working on completing accessible paths at the 4-H Camp and making overall improvements to our facility that is over 55 years old.

Here’s how you can make a HUGE difference:

Happy Holidays from Cascade Lake 4-H Camp

2020 has been quite an experience for us all. For the first time in 55 years, we were unable to host campers. Three families of deer living at the camp did enjoy the option of grazing the green grass without having all those campers to dodge. The ducks and geese took over the docks. The bats that like to sleep behind the cabin window shutters were glad not to be disturbed! Bald eagles nested in our largest pine tree. But we missed our happy campers!

We were able to work on several maintenance projects: a new roof for the manager’s cabin, an accessible path to the archery range along the nature path, new fencing along the parking area, new sprinklers for the yards, new shutters for cabins, replacement of the very old night security lights, and a few other much needed maintenance projects. We appreciated the volunteers that were able to help us with their time. Thanks also to those who donated funds to help!

The Cascade Lake 4-H Camp Board is dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable facility for youth and families of all capabilities that will enhance their educational experience of healthy recreation in a natural environment. As you consider options for year-end giving, we appreciate any support you can provide to help us accomplish our goals and prepare for the return of campers as soon as it is safe.

Here are a couple other ways you can support Cascade Lake 4-H Camp:

  • Join us for camp work weekend! Mark your calendar for May 14-16, 2021. Pretend you are a camper again with campfires, canoeing, and other activities, in addition to helping with a few important projects. If you are interested, contact us at 208-250-8444 or contact@cascadelake4hcamp.com so we can remind you when the weekend gets closer and check your availability.
  • Encourage kids you know in third grade to eighth grade to attend a 4-H Adventure Camp! Summer overnight camps are available for 4-H and non 4-H members. Learn more at 4hadventurecamp.com.

Stay healthy and safe and enjoy the holidays with your family and friends.

Happy camping,
Cascade Lake 4-H Camp Board of Directors
