On April 15, children descended on the Bentley Gardens in search of golden eggs in Cameron University’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.

CU’s Programming Activity Council, Psi Chi and Psychology Club welcomed Cameron students, faculty and their families to the Easter Egg Hunt. At 6 p.m., children took part in the egg hunt, hula-hooping activities and decorating the sidewalk with chalk. To end the event, children had their pictures taken with the Easter bunny and a live rabbit.

Student Activities Specialist Megan Canfield acted as advisor for the Easter Egg Hunt.

“It is one of the most fun and shortest events that
we do,” Canfield said. “At 6 p.m., we start the egg hunt, and it literally lasts until 6:03 p.m. It is a little chaotic, but a good fun type of chaos. We separate them into age groups, so the 12-year-olds aren’t taking out the younger kids.”

Canfield said children had the opportunity to win sweet treats and prizes by finding special Easter eggs.

“We have about 12 or so golden eggs. If you find a

golden egg, you get some pretty cool prizes,”
she said. “We have some baskets that have everything in them. We have stuffed animals. We have really big chocolate rabbits.”

At the end of the day, Canfield said she enjoyed helping with the event and seeing children leave with smiles on their faces.

“It is a
fabulous event,” Canfield said. “It is one of my favorite.
I love working with little kids. They scramble. They just go.”
