Doc Harris Stadium Construction Photos

Written by Bryan Levesque on April 25, 2010

Here are a few pictures of the new Doc Harris Stadium. Camas will open the 2010 season with 2 road games and the first home game will be week 3, September 17 versus Columbia River.

The stadium will hold 3,000 fans on the home side and an additional 1,000 on the road side. Both sides will be covered, which is a huge imporvement to the old Doc Harris which only had about 3/4 of the home side covered.

    I have already added that picture to the gallery above. It is the last picture.

    These pictures don’t do the size of the structure justice. Took a walk over to the site a few days ago to check it out myself, and it looks fantastic. Can’t wait until opening day :)

    WOW. I cant wait to go see a game there! That stadium is going to be beautiful!

    So they aren’t doing a covered away side?

    Because if not I still say McKenzie is #1 still.

    All I want is to not be in the rain…. That’s it…

    DC – “Both sides will be covered…” The lst rendering is just both sides of the home side.

    when are they gonna start the away side? i heard it was basically gonna be the size of the home side from before????

    why is it that camas gets a new staduim when they cant even put new tturf down on mckenzie to stop all the kids from getting staff infection?

    that is a good stinking question cuz those burns hurt.
    but i think its due to the different districts and the fact that maybe the CSD passed a bond while the ESD did not. its not cheap putting in new turf..

  10. DCGardner on April 26th, 2010 9:56 pm

    Get out and vote and encourage others to vote for the bond next time…

    It’s just our kids education and extra curricular activities you know…

  11. Go Dawgs on April 27th, 2010 8:23 am

    Actually the rumor is ESD has the funding to change out the turf at McKenzie, but due to the budget cuts they put it on the back burner for a while until the economic dust begins to clear.

    Gardner is your idea of a better school system just to toss more money at the District? I think most taxpayers feel they’re getting soaked enough. More money doesen’t always mean a better education or improved facilities.

    The problem with Evergreen SD was that they wanted the last bond levy to include frills such as turfing practice fields and building a new magnet school right next to Union. Meanwhile, Vancouver SD turfed the Kiggins Bowl 2 years ago without using a new bond levy. They are trying to put aside about 100,000 per year to replace it in 8 more years when it will probably be ready, a very smart move in tough economic times. ESD needs to learn a lesson and show voters they can do the same thing. I wouldn’t want to pay to turf practice/frosh fields with a bond levy! Not when kids don’t have enough books in their classrooms!

    Storm1,

    First off the last thing that will break a taxpayer is passing a modest levy.

    Secondly, The district is already cutting support staff in droves to balance the budget and you apparently think that not giving money and having them “Tighten their belt” will make it possible? I doubt it.

    There were serious talks when I went to Pacific Middle School of cutting down school sports to Football Basketball and Track and we were still using Mac computers. And even when I went to Union I had to jump through dozens of hoops just to print in color.

    The schools need money. All of these things the district needs won’t fall out of the sky. People need to understand that our schools and our education system are the best investment in the future we have and that if we want a better future then maybe sacrificing a meager amount of money wouldn’t be such a big deal considering the much larger benefit.

    This stuff is felt everywhere — Camas can afford a new stadium, but the *Papermakers* went the last few months of last school year without any boxes of tissues.

    It made allergy season just awful.

    From my understanding the McKenzie Stadium Field will be replaced after this comming season…. so sometime the following summer of 2011.

    As far as the last levy……I went to the information meetings. They tried to cover where they where putting the money…. 3 total new fields costing a total of $25 million…..Thats a total shamm. when the Evergreen High School is currently falling apart after the “remodel”.

    The real problem with America’s schools is not and will never be money. Its the politicians running schools. Doctors, Lawyers and Politicians running the schools, earning over $150K a year. I say Teachers should be running the schools. There is a simple line of wants and needs. These people don’t buy the needs so they can ask for more money for the wants..

    If anything should be voted on is the people in charge. Never the money.

    Doc Harris is looking good, can’t wait to see the end result…

  17. egreen on April 28th, 2010 5:42 pm

    My bad, that’s 3 practice fields and McKenzie. .. 4 total.

    Doc Harris will be nice when finished….Washougal should look to partner with CHS to use this stadium for games. The money isn’t there right now for each school to have exclusive use of one stadium.

  19. Go ND on May 5th, 2010 4:53 pm

    Doc Harris is really being set up to be a ‘District’ stadium in case another Camas HS comes on line in a few years. That is why it will have a general paint scheme versus the current Camas colors. It will also be marketed for other events/uses – another reason for a neutral look.

Got something to say?
