ABOUT MARTIS CAMP COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Giving Back to the Community
The Martis Camp Community Foundation (MCCF) was created in 2010 to support the Truckee community. Initially funded by Martis Camp developers and various annual club events, the MCCF is now funded and run by the members of Martis Camp. Since 2011, the MCCF has raised almost $1 million and granted more than $750,000 to local non-profit organizations and students in need. We expect to triple that number in the coming years and are aiming for 100% participation from our members. We are excited to see the MCCF become part of the fabric of our community.
The mission of the Martis Camp Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the Greater Truckee community by making a positive impact in the areas of education, youth development, human services and recreation.
- Outdoor lifestyle and recreation

Truckee/North Tahoe Area Student Athletes Earn Martis Camp Community Foundation Scholarship Funds
TRUCKEE, Calif. (Monday, May 19, 2014) – Truckee and North Tahoe area student athletes Noah Rodarte, Sawyer Coll, Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe have been recognized for their academic achievement, community service, and dedication to the Northstar Ski and Snowboard Teams.
In partnership with the Martis Camp Community Foundation, the Northstar Team Foundation proudly announced the six recipients of the 2014 Martis Camp Scholarship, valued at $5,000, at the honors ceremony held Saturday, May 17 at the Family Barn in Martis Camp. The Martis Camp Scholarship was created in 2013 to support local student athletes who dedicate service in their community.
“While we are extremely proud of all our recipients, we called special attention to our local Truckee student athletes, Noah Rodarte and Sawyer Coll, who both compete with the Northstar Freeride Teams,” said Jordan Bender, a director and board member with the Northstar Team Foundation. “Noah and Sawyer are so impressive, particularly for elementary school students. Their devotion to community service in Truckee, including participation in Truckee Day and collection for local food donation reflect their commitment to their community. Noah additionally helps with the Salvation Army, Little Free Libraries and Young Life Adventures, while Sawyer spends extra time volunteering with Sierra Senior Services and his school’s PTO,” he added.
Additional scholarship fund recipients included Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe—all of whom attend junior high and high school in the area. In addition to academic dedication, all show remarkable commitment for their other team sports, as well as community churches and non-profit volunteerism at Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and Operation Christmas Child. “This year’s recipients possess exceptional ability and enthusiasm for balancing their academics, community involvement, and sports participation,” Bender said. “We are so proud of them.”
