Many thanks to our community volunteers!
There are many ways to be involved in your community. You can volunteer for single events, ongoing board positions, and committees. Or you can just enjoy the community paths, open space, trails and other recreational activities and help keep our City clean from litter along the way!
We recognize the commitments and work our volunteers do to make Camas a great place to live! Mayor Higgin's created a Volunteer Spirit Award to recognize exceptional effort by an individual, group, organization or business
whose selfless efforts demonstrate “the Camas-way” in meeting the needs of our community,
thereby keeping it the best place to live.
