If you have a passion for history, History Camp is for you. It’s a unique opportunity to spend a day with others from all walks of life who have a passion for history, from authors, teachers, genealogists, and students, to park rangers, museum volunteers, librarians, and individuals from other professions and backgrounds.
History Camp Iowa 2020 marked the event’s fifth year in Des Moines. More than 100 people passionate about history came together to share their stories in two dozen sessions. History Camp started in Boston in 2014, and has grown larger every year. Other History Camps include Pioneer Valley and Colorado. History Camp Iowa is a totally independent event, organized entirely by volunteers.
