Camrose Culture Days Events

ALL MONTH: Scavenger Hunt - "Explore Camrose Culture"

Using the app, Action Bound, our team has put together an exciting and educational adventure through Camrose! Designed as a walkable journey, we start at the Camrose and District Centennial Museum and end at the Camrose Public Library with plenty of fun and interesting stops along the way. September is the home of Alberta’s culture days, we wanted to make our adventure specific to our city’s historical and modern culture. Traveling from the small cabin that housed the first European resident of Camrose, all the way downtown where the city's beautiful murals are, this adventure is one for the history books! Finish the Scavenger Hunt and be entered to win a $50 gift card to a local business! Download the app now at
