Welcome to Boston—where History Camp was born!
In 2014, History Camp founder Lee Wright was inspired by attending an un-conference and decided to bring this flexible, fun, and affordable model to the history community.
Since then, we’ve taken History Camp to other cities, but Boston remains our largest event, with hundreds of folks from New England, the Northeast, and beyond attending History Camp Boston 2022!
This video overview, shot at History Camp Boston 2019, gives you a sense of what to expect. Materials from past History Camp Boston events, including recorded sessions, handouts, speaker schedules, and photo galleries, are at the bottom of the page.
In addition to the annual event, we have behind-the-scenes tours to historic sites throughout the area during the year. Information on those is immediately below.
History Camp Boston is produced by The Pursuit of History, the non-profit organization that engages adults in conversation about history and connects them with historic sites in their communities and across the country through innovative in-person and online programming.
