Camp Dat-So-La-Lee has been a primary service project of the Lions Clubs of Nevada. The week-long recreational summer camp is for children from disadvantaged families that may not be able to afford the expensive private camps. The campers are sponsored by the Lions Clubs of District 46, Nevada.

The Camp is held in June of each year, since 1990, at Lions Camp Lamoille, high in the spectacular Ruby Mountains near Elko Nevada. Approximately 48 deserving boys and girls (10 & 11-year-olds) are selected to attend each year. A distinct Indian theme prevails throughout the week. Campers are divided into six "tribes," which participate in archery, BB-gun shooting, softball, soccer, fishing rod casting, obstacle course competitions, wilderness exploring, map reading, outdoor games, and many interesting arts and crafts. One morning the staff takes the campers hiking in the high country, explaining the beautiful mountain ecosystem, and giving the campers a fantastic view of the camp and the canyon.

Our club sponsors two campers a year, and their expenses and travel. Members also volunteer as staff.

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides food for families in need through more than 150 partner agencies across northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the Sierra in California. They serve more than 130,000 people every month, almost half of whom are children and seniors.

Volunteers working at the Food Bank’s distribution center take on the task of sorting and packing non-perishable food items generously donated by the community. Our warehouse volunteers also help with packing boxes distributed to seniors through the Commodity and Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and sorting and packing bulk produce for distribution through our Mobile Harvest program and Partner Agencies. The Food Bank happily welcomes individuals and groups of all sizes to our warehouse.

Read Between the Lions is a program of Saccadic Fixation Screening and Remediation Regimen for reading skills.  This program screens school children, determining those with a problem with Saccadic Fixation (eyes moving together across a page) and then working with them to help correct this problem.  Better reading means Better Learning.








The club has adopted Les Hicks Jr. Park at 3650 Oakridge Dr. in Sparks. We will be cleaning and performing maintenance tasks under the direction of Sparks Park and Rec. Department personnel. (check Calendar)

This contest provides an opportunity for competitive speaking among students on a subject of vital interest to the contestants, as well as the American people as a whole. The contest also stimulates self-expression and independent thinking and considers the means at our disposal of meeting present and future world problems.







LPCCI is a project that works with Canine Companions for Independence which supplies service dogs to people with disabilities. There are several ways to help. Our club has members that raise puppies that are then evaluated and trained for different kinds of service dogs. Dogs are trained for helping the Blind, the hearing impaired, medical alerts, etc., etc.

There are lots of Service opportunities.





Warm for the Winter: A project of collecting warm clothes for the Homeless.  Some of our members knit hats for this clothing drive all year.  Once the weather turns cold we deliver them to the Good Shepherds Clothes Closet to be distributed to those in need.

We always looking for new ways to get involved in our community, and new people to share our passions with.
