Foresters Camera Club

For the past forty 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 amateurs, professional photographers and those who may be new to the hobby and just want to learn.  Many travel worldwide to photograph, while others take advantage of local sites.  This season we are back to meeting in person at 7:00 p.m. September through May on the first and third Tuesdays.  The first monthly meeting is a competition night; the second is a program night.

If you are a veteran photographer, serious amateur who owns an SLR camera, point-and-shoot, or even a camera phone, or just some one who would like to learn about photography,  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 or use contact form and we’ll return your message.
