The annual egg hunt returns to Crown Park on Easter Sunday

Camas, WA —After two years of web event and activity bags, the Camas Egg Hunt event is back, live and in person! Join Camas Parks and Recreation for the 31st annual Easter egg hunt, with an updated fun event name of “Camas Egg Rush!“This special event will take place at Crown Park on Easter Sunday, April 17 at 1:30 p.m. sharp. Don’t be late, because we start on time!

Candy and eggs filled with prizes will be hidden in designated egg hunt areas, which will be color-marked for age groups 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9 and 10-12 . All ages start at the same time, at 1:30 p.m., in their designated age hunting areas. Be sure to open all of your eggs at the park to see if you’ve collected a Prize Token; you will return these tokens to the park to claim a prize and return the eggshells to us for reuse next year!

All abilities are welcome to participate in this fun event. A designated “egg walk” has been developed to prioritize accessibility and enhance this inclusive activity for all ages. If you have any needs that we can meet, please contact Krista at the number listed below.

The Easter Bunny will be at Scout Hall in the park for photos from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and must bring a basket or bag in which to collect their eggs. Adults are not allowed in the hunting areas, except in the area reserved for 2-3 year olds or accompanying a participant with special needs. The traditional Easter hat and contemporary hat competition will take place at 2:00 p.m., in the covered shelter.

No registration is required for the Egg Hunt or Beanie/Hat Contest. This is a popular event, so please allow time for parking. An accessible parking and drop-off area has been set up along the NE 15e & NE Dallas St. Space is limited. Crown Park is a six-acre park located at NE Everett and NE 17e Av.
