The annual Camas egg hunt returns on Easter Sunday

The annual Camas Town Egg Hunt is back after two years of cancellations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Camas Parks and Recreation Department will host the town’s 31st Annual Egg Hunt at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 17 (Easter Sunday) at Crown Park.

The new “Camas Egg Scramble” will feature an egg hunt, with eggs filled with candy and rewards, for children ages 2-12.

All abilities are welcome at the Egg Hunt, and the town will be hosting an inclusive “egg walk” for all ages.

The Easter Bunny will be available for photographs from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Scout Hall in Crown Park.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and must bring a basket or bag to collect their eggs. Adults are not permitted in the egg hunt areas, except for the area reserved for children 2-3 years old or when accompanying a participant with special needs.

The city’s “Traditional Easter Bonnet and Contemporary Hat” competition will take place at 2 p.m. on April 17, at the covered shelter in Crown Park.

No registration is required for the egg hunt or beanie contest.

The Egg Hunt is a popular event and families are encouraged to arrive at Crown Park early and allow time for parking.

Accessible parking and a drop-off area will be available northeast of 15th Avenue and northeast of Dallas Street, but parking spaces are limited.

The Camas Egg Scramble is organized by the City of Camas Parks and Recreation Department and sponsored by Soroptimists International, VFW Post 4278, VFW Auxiliary and Winco.
