Idaho Gives is May 4, 2017 and we are asking you to join us in our efforts to make this the most awesome day of giving the nation has ever seen!

Click here and take five minutes to give to Cascade Lake 4-H Camp, Inc.

After that, you can give to other nonprofits that do work you support or just kick back and watch how high the giving can go at idahogives.org!

Your donation of any amount will help. We are working on completing accessible paths at the 4-H Camp and making improvements to docks, cabins, lighting and the lodge at the 52 year old facility.

Here’s how you can make a HUGE difference:

  • Make a donation.
  • Spread the word. Text a friend. Forward this email. Post on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #idahogives.
  • Oh, and you can also just tell someone in person – that works, too. You also don’t have to wait until May 4. The site is active, and you can make a donation now.

Thanks for your help!

Idaho Gives is a statewide, 24-hour giving day taking place on May 4th, 2017, and it’s all online!

Progress Continues on Path to the Future

In 2016, Cascade Lake 4-H Camp began work on a path improvement project to ensure campers of all abilities can enjoy the facility. The project involves upgrading 4,253 feet of pathway that will be 4′ wide. A total 17,012 sq. ft. of stable, safe path will be constructed with a packed gravel base covered by True Grid Pavers filled with more gravel. Construction of each running foot of path will cost $9 to $10.

With the help of many generous donors and volunteers, Cascade Lake 4-H Camp has completed Phase 1 of the path improvement project. During 2016 spring and fall work weekends, friends of the camp constructed accessible paths from the parking lot to the lodge, health lodge, dock, barbeque area, ADA bathrooms, and two cabins.

We have currently raised the funds needed to complete Phase 2, which will include construction of accessible pathways to the campfire area, amphitheater, flag pole, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and corrals, as well as accessible parking at the archery and rifle ranges.

The Camp Board continues to seek donations and volunteers to complete the second and third phases of the project. These improvements will help ‘make the best, better’ for all who use the trails. Thanks for your support and happy camping trails to all!
