The Collinsville Area Camera Club is for beginners as well as experienced photographers to meet regularly, share ideas and information so all can improve their images and have fun learning together in an informal atmosphere.

Thank You – A big THANK YOU to Pam Lippert, Naturalist at the Tree House Wildlife Center, for coming out to speak to the CACC members on May 14th. Pam brought along four beautiful wild birds (one hawk and three owls) for the group to photograph and learn more about. It was a big HOOT!
