Foresters Camera Club

For the past thirty years, Foresters Camera Club has served area photographers well.  We originated as Court Harvey Camera Club, affiliated with the fraternal organization called Independent Order of Foresters. In 1977, the club went public. Our first meeting place was the Community Center on Southwest Highway and 127th in Palos Park.  From 1989 to 1999, members met at the Palos Heights Recreation Center, off 127th west of Ridgeland.  Since 1999, we have been meeting at the Palos United Methodist Church.

The goal of our club is the study and enjoyment of photography.  Our members consist of serious amateur as well as professional photographers.  Many travel worldwide to photograph, while others take advantage of local sites.  We meet at 7:00 p.m. September through May on the first and third Tuesdays at the Palos United Methodist Church.  The first monthly meeting is a competition night; the second is a program night.  We also offer a variety of outings.  At the end of the season, we celebrate our successes with an awards banquet.

If you are a veteran photographer or a serious amateur who owns an SLR camera or even an advanced point-and-shoot, we invite you to join Foresters Camera Club. Our goal is to have fun as we improve our images and make friends with others who share our passion. Membership is open to all passionate photographers, age 16 or older.  Come out and see what we are about.
