History Camp America 2021 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 (if any technical difficulties, we will attempt to re-record the session) and everyone who registers will have access to these recordings for one year 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 cooking demo 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!

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

This login will be unique to you and to the email address you provided at the time of registration and will be valid for one year past the event date (through July 10, 2022).

Recordings may include presentations only, not Q&A exchanges or chats. Please note that you cannot share this login or re-broadcast or share materials from this site as per the terms of use for the site.

Yes! But you have to register early!

Early Registration for this conference is valid until midnight (eastern) on May 31, 2021. Until then all registrations are discounted by $30.

Members of The Pursuit of History received an invitation to register early for this event. Join us to become a member and receive first notice of future events.

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.

If you witness any offensive behavior, please try and screen-grab the interaction and email it and the name of the offender immediately to help@historycamp.org

Anyone in violation of our terms may be removed from participation—for any cause and without explanation. Those ejected from the event will not receive a refund and may be barred from accessing recorded content.

All registrations will appear on your credit card as The Pursuit of History, Inc., the registered non-profit organizer of History Camp and other history-focused programming and events.
