Annual Alumni Banquet Coronavirus Update

At this time, we feel it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel the Camden Alumni Association Annual Banquet again this year. Our desire is for everyone to stay safe & healthy. Unfortunately, with the uncertainties for what the near future holds on public gatherings, it has become nearly impossible to plan future events at this time.

We are still working on the details to award the scholarships to the graduating seniors. It is still our plan to award eight scholarships to deserving graduating seniors this year. Due to the generous level of donations received this past year we are also increasing the scholarship award to $1,250 to each recipient this year, our first increase due to inflation in 12 years.

In early to mid-May, we will be sending out a mailer to our alumni to ask you for your annual membership dues and any scholarship donation you would like to make for this year to help us fund next year’s activities and scholarships. We greatly appreciate your support at that time.

Thank you for your understanding during this ongoing difficult time of social distancing. We feel the sadness for all of the 5-Year reunion classes from both this year and last year who are unable to celebrate as a group until this pandemic is under control, especially the 50-Year honored classes: the Class of 1970 and the Class of 1971.

We are looking forward to resuming our Annual Alumni Banquets as soon as conditions will allow us to do so safely. At that time, it will be a special celebration honoring all the 50-Year classes that missed their special year along with the current 50-Year class!

Please avoid the website!!


It is a commercial site that charges you money for full access to it’s information and is in no way connected to the Official Camden Alumni Association. Please avoid them, and definitely do not give them any money!!

This is their web address/URL:

Please avoid supporting them, it does not support your true alumni association, just some commercial business run in Washington State.
Right from the bottom of the home page of the “Camden Alumni” site: (3412) – 10019 E Knox Ave, Spokane Valley WA, 99206. is not affiliated with and is independent of any school, school district, alumni association or any other sites.

Yes, I am a member myself, but I joined years ago when the site was new, and got a free lifetime membership, just so I could keep track of them and try to steer people away from spending money with them thinking they were supporting the official Camden Alumni Association.
