Palmerton Camera‚Äč Club

About the Palmerton camera club

We were founded in 1947 and have been going strong ever since.  We are the oldest camera club in the Lehigh Valley area and we have been a member of PSA for 66 years.   Our members come from all walks of life - retirees to students, blue collar and white collar, beginners to advanced amateurs.  We even have a couple of professionals that are a great asset to our group.

We meet from  September through June, generally every 4th Thursday at 7:30 PM at the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Palmerton, PA.  Dues are $20.00 per person for the year and $35.00 for a couple and $1.00 for Students up with 12th Grade with Student id.

Our programs include how-to lectures, hands on model and tabletop photography, travelogues, photo shoots, and mini lessons.  An important part of each meeting is the discussion before and after the program.  It is a chance for people to exchange tips and ideas and for beginners to get advice.

Our meetings are always open to visitors.  However, to enter our yearly contests you must be a dues paying member.
