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,

S’more Adventures at Camp

Cascade Lake 4‐H Camp needs your support in raising funds for improvement projects that will ensure the camp is a safe, comfortable, and accessible facility for future generations of happy campers.

The Camp Board wants to thank you for your support in the past. Due to COVID-19, we won’t be able to have our usual Dutch Oven Dinner event this year.

We also were not able to hold camps this summer but have been working on many maintenance projects. There are several new items we need to add to our list:  new sprinkler system for the lawn, replace the 40 year old hot water heaters in the north bath, new energy saving night lights, new shutters for the cabins and more ADA paths.

We would appreciate any help you can give towards these projects.

Please stay healthy and we’ll look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Happy camping,
Cascade Lake 4-H Camp Board
