Welcome to History Camp!

Casual conferences • Author discussions • Historic site tours
Online and in-person

We created and launched History Camp in 2014 and now organize annual History Camps in Boston, Colorado, Virginia, and soon in Philadelphia. In addition, local groups in Iowa and the Pioneer Valley, Massachusetts, host events using the History Camp model.

These casual conferences and events bring together history lovers from all walks of life. Dozens of sessions, tables from authors and history organizations, historical re-enactors, and more. Ideas are exchanged and connections made. We’ve posted several presentations on our History Camp Archive page and the site tours from America’s Summer Roadtrip.

History Camp, last summer’s roadtrip, and our discussions every week are projects of the non-profit organization The Pursuit of History. We hope you’ll consider joining us in The Pursuit of History and supporting these initiatives.

History Camp America

Join Us Online—Saturday July 10, 2021

We’re eager to restart our in-person History Camps. But rather than wait any longer, this summer we are taking History Camp nationwide with History Camp America on Saturday, July 10, 2021. This day-long event will include more than 25 sessions and more than a half-dozen special tours of historic sites.

If you haven’t been able to attend a History Camp in one of our cities, this is your chance to join history lovers from across the country, all from the convenience of your computer or tablet. Register (opening soon, sign-up for email updates) to watch the sessions and have access to recordings of all sessions in the History Camp America archive.
