How you can help

Thanks to all the folks who have volunteered during past years and to all those who have asked about how they can help make History Camp Boston 2018 a success.

I’ve listed a few ways below. Do you have other ideas, or would you like to tackle one of the things below that needs one or two people? If so, please let me know.


Tell your friends: Get the word out. Send people to We have people coming from several states outside of the region, so as you think about who may be interested, don’t limit yourself to New England.

Know of a community event calendar? Go ahead and add it.

Recruit historic sites and history organizations for Sunday: This will be the the second year we’ve expand to the weekend. Local institutions are invited to create programming for or otherwise extend an offer to attendees for Sunday, July 8. They may also wish to promote events earlier in the week for people who travel to the area to visit and sightsee before History Camp. (We already know of people flying in from Colorado and Texas, and coming up from Maryland.)

Special offers and events, either before History Camp or on the Sunday of History Camp Weekend will be posted here. Just send them in.

At History Camp

  • Arrive at 7 am (an hour before registration opens) to help with registration and set up. If you will come early to do that, please let me know.
  • Arriving at 8 am (as soon as registration opens), get checked in, and tell the person at the registration table that you’re there to help out. If there is something we need a hand with, we’ll appreciate your help.
