Cascade Lake 4-H Camp Needs your Help!

The mission of Cascade Lake 4-H Camp for over 50 years has been to provide safe comfortable facilities for youth and families of all capabilities to experience healthy recreation in a beautiful natural environment.

Many years of busy summers with lots of youth and adult campers compounded by cold snowy winters have left the camp in need of upgrades and repairs.

Since 2005, the camp has raised over $223,961 to help prepare the camp for another 50 years of camping fun. We are grateful to have accomplished this much, but we still need about $252,000 more to complete necessary improvements. Thanks for all the support from our Friends of the 4-H Camp. Please read about some of the upcoming ways you can help us reach our goals.

  • 2017 Solar Eclipse: Rent a single cabin Sunday, August 20 and experience the solar eclipse on August 21 at beautiful Cascade Lake 4-H Camp.
  • Fall Work Weekend: August 26 & 27 at Cascade Lake 4-H Camp in Donnelly, Idaho. Volunteers accomplish the majority of our improvements.
