Winter Wonderland is a collaboration between the Downtown Camas Association, its merchants, and the City of Camas Parks & Recreation.
Paint it, Fill it, Create it - Community Ornaments for the Winter Wonderland Tree! During the month of November, we offered a few hundred wood and plastic ornaments to the community to be decorated and returned in order to be used to adorn the annual holiday tree. Over 150 of you responded by uniquely creating your own style of ornament to share on the tree. We then prepared them for the Pacific Northwest weather by water-proofing them and adding wire strands to attach to the tree. All 157 colorful and festive ornaments were hung on the tree, in front of Liberty Theatre, on December 4. They will remain there for the month of December and then, upon removal, will be kindly stored until another display next year and years to come. Thank you to all who participated in this fun and bright community activity.

Holiday Activity Bags
As part of the ongoing Winter Wonderland in Camas activities, Parks & Recreation has stuffed 800 special activity bags with goodies to keep our community kiddos entertained! The winter-themed bags are filled with a variety of craft kits, toys, and other holiday items.
Winter Activity Bags can be picked up in front of City Hall (616 NE 4th Ave.), between 2pm and 5pm, through December 12. A limited number of bags will be available for pick-up each day, while supplies last. Please wear your mask and practice social distancing while picking up your bag.
A big thank you to our loyal team of volunteers who, donned with appropriate PPE and at proper social distancing, stuffed hundreds of bags over the past two weeks.
Schedules and pick-up locations are subject to change; check our Camas Parks & Recreation Facebook page for any updates. Have a safe and wonderful Winter Wonderland!
Camas Self-guided Lights Tour Map
Let’s share some brightness this season with our community! Camas residents and businesses are invited to participate in a self-guided lights tour (removed December 29).
If you love decorating the exterior of your home or business, and want to volunteer to share your bright and beautiful lights with your community, simply email your address (note home or business), and a highlight about your decorated home/business (not required), to: Krista Bashaw at email@example.com. (For example: 000 NE 3rd Ave. – Example Store, business; candy cane themed lights). Addresses will be used to create a self-guided map of lighted Camas homes and businesses. A link to the map will be posted here and on Facebook the week of December 7 and will be updated every Friday. The map will be available through December 26.
