Camas United Methodist Church is proud to sponsor this and other family and fun activities for our community.  Check out our Movies in the Park page for tips and more information.

School Supplies Drive!

Every year our congregation pitches in to purchase school supplies for Helen Baller Elementary School, helping them close the gap for those who cannot bring all the items on the list. Attached is this years list per grade, be sure to get the name brands that the teachers asked for as they are the items that last in the classroom. The list (a PDF) is online here. Key items include Tigonderoga #2 pencils, Crayola 24 pk crayons, 8 pk washable crayola markers, 24 pk crayola colored pencils, elmers glue sticks, wide-rule composition books (not notebooks),  kleenex, clorox wipes, ziplock bags and more.
