Camrose Camera Club » Photo Spectacular

The CCC is a non profit organization and the Spectacular is a fund raiser and also a project that we take to the community. The show is taken on the road by volunteer members of the CCC to show at Seniors Lodges in Camrose. Seniors at Bethany Meadows, Stony Creek, RoseAlta and others have all enjoyed our Spectacular Show.
