Welcome to the Nevada State 4-H Camp!

Lake Tahoe is a unique and magnificent treasure. Its diverse forest, meadow and beach ecosystems provide an unparalleled opportunity for outdoor environmental education, recreation, inspiration and relaxation.

Our 4-H Camp at Lake Tahoe sits under a canopy of gentle Jeffrey pines. Facilities there include rustic sleeping and craft cabins, a 166-person dining hall and covered outdoor eating area, and separate women's and men's restrooms. The Camp's private sandy beachfront and its pier, basketball court, horeshoe pits, lawn areas, pingpong tables, and 150-person scenic amphitheater with stage, and 150-person campfire area offer leisure activities like volleyball, swimming, kayaking, canoeing and more.
