More on Camas Washington
Camas Washington is located right across the Columbia River off of Interstate 205 in Clark County and home to about 22,000 residents. It borders the city of Washougal and Vancouver along the Washington side of the Columbia River across from Troutdale. However, it still part of the Portland metro area and was incorporated in 1906 named after the Camas Lily, a beautiful onion-like bulb prized by Native Americans. Nestled about 20 miles east of Portland, the commercial base of the city was almost solely the paper mill first established back in 1883. However, the diversity of industries has been enhanced considerably over the years with larger, high-tech companies including Hewlett-Packard, Sharp Microelectronics, Linear Technology, and Underwriters Labs.
The downtown Camas area is well preserved and is known for its attractive tree-lined streets and thriving locally-owned economy. While it's a small community, it offers a few shopping and social gathering spots, restaurants, and boutiques. As Portland expanded, most folks decided to do most of their shopping away from Camas so, in 1966, a few residents representing the downtown business area came up with a plan called Operation 4-Sight. This idea was to designate a few blocks of downtown where a concentration of improvements could be made that would keep a lot of the shopping and the shoppers in town. It was designed to make it more pedestrian-friendly, offered a variety of parking, made a pleasant and welcoming environment with natural trees and foliage, and conveniently placed benches so people would stay in town, socialize, and of course, keep their money in town. This led to the downtown's charming look and functional design. Its village-like appeal keeps commerce flowing as well as friendly interaction among its citizens.

"Excellent. Camas keeps kids accountable and prepares them for their launch into adulthood."
"My son, niece, and nephew all go to Woodburn and we’ve had a great experience. The teachers have all been very attentive and make a great effort to make our kids feel seen even during the pandemic and virtual learning. I expressed concern to son’s teacher about his struggles with virtual school and she immediately started doing 2 one-on-one sessions with him each week. When we were dealing with a death in the family, the staff rallied to make sure we were taken care of. I can’t say enough good things about the staff & teachers at this school." - GreatSchools.org
