Shady Creek OEF Programs


This new program allows the community at large to help fund kids who might not otherwise get to attend the Outdoor Science Camp experience. You have the option to specify a student from a particular county or set up small monthly donations. $250 yearly fully 'funds-a-kid' for a week at Shady Creek Outdoor Education Program.

FitQuest Family Camp

Sponsored by Sutter Medical Foundation, the 3 day, 2 night family camp is free to eligible families selected through an application process. This school year our reach has expanded to 42 Yuba and Sutter Schools, and several schools in Placer and Sacramento Counties. The Yuba Sutter Colusa United Way has awarded us grant funding specifically to target Colusa Schools,
we currently serve 4 Colusa County Schools with this grant funding.

Yuba-Sutter Lip Sync Battle

Our yearly fundraiser event isn't your typical cocktail hour gala. Guests and sponsors are treated to local acts lip syncing popular songs in a fun battle, while raising money for student scholarships. Colusa Casino has hosted this event since it began in 2016. Click here to learn more and buy tickets.
