History Camp America brings together the wide variety of sessions you love from History Camp and the historic site tours you loved during last summer’s America’s Summer Roadtrip, all in one exciting, day-long event.

And if you haven’t been able to travel to attend an in-person History Camp, this is your chance to join history lovers from across the country, all from the convenience of your computer or tablet.

People who love history, love History Camp

History Camp America will have more than 25 sessions covering all aspects of history. You’ll be able to attend all of the sessions live and watch recordings of all sessions in the archive.

“There were so many different subjects and genres of history, all of them interesting, that it was difficult to choose which lectures to attend. I wish I could have been in two or three places at once.” —History Camp Boston attendee

Our first major online event was last summer’s America’s Summer Roadtrip, a 12-hour, coast to coast live event with broadcasts from 12 historic sites across the country, and it was a hit!

“It was amazing, overflowing with fascinating content and well-organized beyond my expectations! You guys did an amazing job! Great work!” —Joan S.

This summer’s History Camp America will include live broadcasts from several historic sites, and all of these will be recorded, too.


Registration opens in the coming weeks

Your registration will cover all of the day’s live events and an archive with a recording of every session. For families who love history, one registration will cover your entire family.  Watch your email for details, including when registration will open.


Call for Presenters

We’re looking for our nation’s most interesting and informative history presenters—authors, researchers, and teachers, historians, Park Rangers, and docents—anyone who has a passion for history, is deeply knowledgeable about their topic, and is a seasoned presenter who can capture and hold an audience’s attention.

If there’s someone you would like to see at History Camp America, forward this message with your own note.

The presenter portal is now open—apply here.

All the best,


Lee Wright, President


Carrie Lund, Executive Director

P.S. In addition to the things you love about in-person History Camps and America’s Summer Roadtrip, we have several surprises planned for History Camp America, including a box packed with exciting history merchandise.  We can’t wait to tell you more!

History Camp is a project of the non-profit The Pursuit of History.
