The annual Camtown Youth Festival and its related Camtown-Forgey art show will return to Camas’ Crown Park on Saturday, June 3. This year’s theme is “Sharing Cultural Diversity.”  

The Camtown-Forgey art show offers an opportunity for budding or accomplished artists to participate in an activity which encourages imagination and shares the creativity of our talented youth in our community.  The students’ artwork will be displayed during the one-day event, in Scout Hall located at Crown Park. In addition to the art show, the event will also include a variety of games, crafts, entertainment, food, a flea market, a petting zoo and information tables.
