History Camp America 2022 is on par with the pricing for our largest in-person History Camp event, History Camp Boston.

Surprisingly, the infrastructure for presenting a multi-channel event for the number of people we expect to attend is several times the expense to rent the space for our in-person History Camp events.

And while an online event can’t duplicate every aspect of an in-person event, we’ve added several elements that are similar and others that add more to the experience, including…

  • Every session will be recorded and everyone who registers will have access to these recordings for 3 months past the event date. Access to recordings are only available for registrants.
  • Virtual tours of historic sites—with exclusive behind-the-scenes content just for History Camp.
  • The History Camp America box, loaded with exclusive event merchandise as well as items for history lovers from our sponsors and supporters.
  • Breakout areas for follow-up discussions.
  • A virtual space for meeting and mingling after the event.
  • Yoga to start the day and a mid-day stretch.
  • Cooking demonstrations at lunch.

And because History Camp America will be online, there is no travel required—which means that anyone from anywhere can join us. Not only does an online event open doors to more history fans to participate, it has also made it possible for more presenters from all across the country to participate!

What is the History Camp America online experience like?

Its as close as you can possibly get to an in-person event with the added bonus of historic site tours. People loved it, here’s what they said:

“History Camp will introduce you to articulate and passionate public historians. The range of topics at History Camp and on the Thursday night discussions provides all history folks with complex ideas about our past.”

“If you want to spend a single day delving into interesting topics that span our nation’s history all from the comfort of your own home, then History Camp America is for you! Not only can you hear about interesting topics, you can also tour places you may not otherwise be able to!”

“Eclectic, vivid, and invigorating!”

“History Camp America is a great experience with amazing instructors who are very knowledgeable in the topics. The tours were awesome and educational! They cover a wide variety of topics, so you are guaranteed to find something that you can enjoy! The lunch making was also super fun!”

“A history party with in depth info on lots of different topics.”

“History Camp America is the equivalent to attending a Comic-Con. Nerds everywhere in their element!”

“History Camp America is similar to a professional conference with high quality speakers who gear their talks toward an audience of non-professional history nerds.”

“The most extraordinarily diverse one-day program.”

“A great value, a great time, and well worth the investment.”

“I really loved it and I can’t wait to watch the ones I didn’t get a chance to catch in the archives. I loved all the different intriguing subjects. I’m the only history lover in my household and being a part of history camp was so fun for me and I loved being a part of something with other history lovers.”

After the event, you will receive instructions on how to access all the recorded sessions and tours here on on HistoryCamp.org.

Please note that History Camp has always been a level-priced event—we all pitch-in, including speakers and volunteers—we do not offer special pricing for students, faculty, seniors, or other considerations.

History Camp is an event where attendees can share and learn in a supportive, casual, and fun educational environment.

In short, we expect:
– Courteous personal conduct.
– No spamming or solicitation.
– No streaming or sharing of event material through to other websites or any other forms of rebroadcast or re-transmission. No sharing of our speakers’ copyrighted presentations and/or materials in any way or form.
