2021 Conference to be Held in Charleston October 12-15

While the 2020 CAMP Conference was canceled due to the pandemic, plans for this year’s Conference will more than make up for it.

The Conference will be held in Charleston, South Carolina, a city not only full of military history attractions, but also home to many other tourist attractions. The Conference will be held in conjunction with the Coast Defense Study Group, which will add their expertise in explaining many of the sites to be visited.

CAMP member Steven Wise, the Curator of the Parris Island Museum and Cultural Resource Manager for the base, will take members on a tour of the Marine Base to include the site of the Santa Elena mission and Charlesfort. There will also be a tour of the base museum.

As to be expected, the tour of Charleston will include Fort Sumter and the other fortifications of Charleston Harbor. For those interested in Naval history, the tour may include the USS Yorktown and USS Laffey at Patriots Point. The Medal of Honor Museum is also on the Yorktown.

The Conference will start one day earlier than CAMP’s usual Wednesday-Saturday schedule and end after the annual dinner on Friday evening. This will allow for two days to explore Charleston on your own or join CDSG for Saturday in Savannah.

Arrangements are still being confirmed, so watch for more information in the Heliogram, on the CAMP website, and by email.
