Washington Park Camera members meet Tuesday nights between during and between the months of September of one year and June of the next (dependent on weather and location availability). Starting time is usually around 7:00 PM at the Washington Park Field House (on 55th and Dr. MLK Drive) and meetings run anywhere from an hour to an hour-and-a-half. The club breaks for the summer but may have organized field trips to various locations during the off-period.
