Fall Camp Rescheduled
Fall Camp Rescheduled
After the terrifying events of the Caldor Fire, Lake Tahoe is back, ready for fun and needs our support! Thanks to the efforts of devoted fire crews, the town and vicinity were untouched. By mid-October enough time will have passed for the air to be clean & clear and Lake Tahoe will be at its most beautiful with sunny days, crisp evenings and autumn foliage bursting with color.

And along with the community coming back, so is the 2021 Wild Blue Fall Camp!

The organizers of the camp will have the full agenda at the 4H with all of their favorite activities, instructors and a schedule full of fun. Please join us for these new dates for a 4 paws up adventure!

Both venues will remain the same-4H and Tahoe Beach Retreat & Lodge. For more information on how you can get away this fall and experience this great event, call Blue Dogs Camp founder, Victoria Rhodes at (775) 790-3446, or email to victoria@wildbluedogs.orgmore »
