Spring News from Cascade Lake 4-H Camp

Spring is right around the corner and camps will be arriving soon. Following are a couple quick items we wanted to let our ‘Friends of Cascade Lake 4-H Camp’ know about.


Ready to lend a helping hand?

We’re counting down the days to May 3rd and Idaho Gives. We need your help to make our campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways that you can support us.

1) Share and share alike. Online days of giving are successful because of our own networks. Help us grow our network by sending this email to your network and ask your friends to do the same.

2) Be socially (media) active. Use your social media networks: post on Facebook, tweet about the Idaho Gives, and share your love for your particular passion, whether it’s education, health care, animals, or the arts. Ask others to do the same.

3) Become a fundraising champion. Everyone loves a champion, including us! We really need fundraising champions to help drive people to our Idaho Gives profile on May 3rd. Please consider a donation to Cascade Lake 4-H Camp. You can give today or wait until May 3.

Thank you in advance for your support and Happy Camping!
