Cascade Lake 4-H Camp Builds Path to the Future
For 50 years, campers have enjoyed peaceful walks on trails beneath the pines along the lakeshore of the Cascade Lake 4-H Camp. The Camp Board has made many improvements to those paths over the years, but as we start our next 50 years, we want to make the experience even better for campers of all abilities.


Our path improvement project will upgrade 4,253 feet of pathway that will be 4’ wide. A total 17,012 sq. ft. of path will be constructed. The packed gravel base will have a True Grid Paver filled with more gravel that will make a stable, safe path for campers of all abilities enjoying the their time at the camp. Construction of each running foot of path will cost $9 to $10. According to the terms of our recently renewed lease from the Bureau of Reclamation, we are required to complete the improvements by September 2016.

The Camp Board is seeking support from friends of the Camp through donations to complete the project. We challenge all 4-H Clubs in the District to see how many feet of path they can donate to the Camp. Club progress will be reported on our website and Facebook. Follow us and help us spread the news of our project. Thanks for your support!

These improvements will help ‘make the best, better’ for all who use the trails. Happy Camping Trails To You All!
