In the spring of 2015 we started monthly outings that gave people signed up for the History Camp Boston mailing list unique opportunities to learn more about history. As you can see from the list of events for 2015 (below), there is a wide variety, and they all have one thing in common: These tours or walks had never been offered before, or are rarely ever offered.

Planning Camp Boston Monthly Outings for 2016
If your organization would like to put together a special event and host a History Camp Boston outing in 2016, let us know. Attendance ranges from 10 to 30, and organizations are welcome to charge their standard admission. We’re looking for an event for every month next year except March, which is when History Camp Boston 2016 takes place; a few organizations have already expressed interest particular months.
