Camden County History Week is hosted by the Camden County History Alliance, an association of over 40 Camden County history organizations, historic sites, and support agencies. The History Alliance was created in 2016 to identify resources, increase the number of visitors, and institute projects that promote Camden County heritage.
Camden County History Week invites the public to visit the 36 participating historic sites and history organizations from October 13 to October 21 when they will be open with special activities for adults and children. The vast majority of the events and activities during the week are free.
The Camden County History Week Event Guide and Passport will be available at any of the participating history organizations starting on October 1. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the variety of activities and event at participating organizations as possible from October 13 to 21, and to get their Passport stamped at each location.
