INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Tahoe Family Solutions recently announced it was awarded a $3,000 grant from the Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation Community Giving Program.

The grant will help fund Camp Explore, a 6-week summer camp program that provides local children with enriching summer activities that promote learning, leadership and self-esteem.

The program is sliding fee-based and welcomes all children regardless of their ability to pay. In 2015, more than 100 children participated in Camp Explore.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Umpqua Bank in funding Camp Explore,” said TFS Development Director Amy Guinan. “Through partnerships such as this, we can keep camp fees low while continuing to provide the highest quality summer camp experience possible for local children.”

The mission of the nonprofit TFS is “to provide key resources and enhance skills for families in the Tahoe Basin.” The organization provides signature programs in counseling, camping and education.
