recognizes the role of the arts and local history in making our communities dynamic places to live and work.

• We promote culture as a vital asset to the County of Camden.
The Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission at Camden County College is proud to participate in a variety of yearly cultural and arts events such as the Local Arts Program, National Arts Program, and numerous other art centered programs both throughout the county and on our college campuses.
