History Camp Pioneer Valley



The Pioneer Valley History Network (PVHN) announces “History Camp Pioneer Valley 2019” to be held this year on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at the Kittredge Center at Holyoke Community College.  This will be our 4th gathering of history enthusiasts of all ages, for a day of learning and sharing.

History Camp is the un-conference dedicated to all things history.  Everyone is welcome to attend, but registration is required, and anyone can present, assuming we have a time slot open. More information on History Camp, including photos, quotes, and the profile of attendees from earlier History Camps, is here.

The goal of History Camp Pioneer Valley is to break even – there are no paid staff, no paid speakers, and no one will profit. We will charge the lowest possible fee to cover the costs of the venue and lunch, but to allow the greatest number of people to attend.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking and an exhibit area for selling books and other history-related products.

Note: If you plan to present at the event, you must both register to attend and request a time-slot to present. Thank you.



  • Interested in presenting?  First, check out the Schedule of Sessions and Identify an open Time Slot (the green boxes) that you’d like.

Exhibit Your Wares

  • History Camp Pioneer Valley will have a limited number of exhibitor tables set up during the Networking & Lunch period for people to exhibit, demonstrate, autograph, or otherwise “show-off” books, software, or other history-related products. There is a $15 fee for an exhibitor table. If you are interested in having a table at the event, please contact:  Cliff@HistoryCamp.org.
