Camas’ annual egg hunt returns on Easter Sunday

Popular event at Crown Park was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID pandemic

The city of Camas’ annual egg hunt is back on after two years of COVID-19 pandemic-related cancellations.

Camas Parks and Recreation Department will host the city’s 31st annual egg hunt at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 17 (Easter Sunday) at Crown Park.

The newly named “Camas Egg Scramble” will offer an egg hunt, complete with candy- and prize-filled eggs, for children ages 2 to 12.

All abilities are welcome at the egg hunt, and the city will host an inclusive “egg stroll” for all ages.

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

Children must be accompanied by an adult and should bring a basket or bag for collecting their eggs. Adults are not allowed in the egg-hunting areas, except for the area designated for children ages 2 to 3, or when accompanying a participant with special needs.

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

No registration is required for the egg hunt or the bonnet-hat contest.

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