Fall into Fun Event Saturday October 8, 2022

FALL into FUN for a GREAT CAUSEPlease join us on Saturday October 8, 2022 at the Camdenton City Park for Art in the Park, Crush Pancreatic Cancer Fun Run/Walk, Chili Cook-Off & Silent Auction! There will be music, crafts, booths and so much more- all located at the Camdenton City Park! 

The 28th Annual ART IN THE PARK is back! Art in the Park was created by the Child Advocacy Council in 1994 and is designed with the understanding that the arts promote self-esteem and confidence in children.  This is a FREE event and includes tents for a variety of fun creative crafts.  Hot dogs & popcorn will be provided free. Donations are encouraged.

We will also be hosting our annual CRUSH PANCREATIC CANCER SK FUN RUN/WALK, CHILI COOK-OFF & SILENT AUCTION. On February 10, 2010, Camdenton Police Officer Floyd Sanders lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Since his passing, we have met numerous families within our community that have also lost a loved one to this often silent but deadly disease! Each year, we join forces with those families to raise money and awareness about Pancreatic Cancer. All money raised at this event will go directly to the Lustgarden Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, where 100% of donations go towards finding a cure!

But to make our event a success, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need runners, walkers & joggers to attend the Fun Run/Walk! We also need teams for our Chili Cook-Off!

City Park WIFI

The City of Camdenton has partnered with the Camden County Library District to offer Free WiFi in City Park. The Library District secured a grant from Premier Wireless, a leader in education technology solutions, to provide internet access around schools and in parks, with the goal of students  taking learning technology with them outside the classroom. This is ever more important as we practice social distancing and virtual learning due to the pandemic. WiFi access is available all along the circle drive in City Park, called Pam May Drive, and at the Tennis Courts, Basketball Courts, Skate Park and Aquatic Center Parking Lot. Do a WiFi search on your device, choose "City Park WiFi" then enter password "playground" and you're connected to the internet.
