Welcome to the South Jersey Camera Club
The South Jersey Camera Club (SJCC) was organized to promote the art and science of photography. Among its goals is the desire to unite others in sharing similar interests, to exchange ideas and photographic expertise, and to enhance the skills of club members. Serving the southern part of New Jersey, our members come from Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, Mercer, Salem and Atlantic counties.
Outstanding speakers present interesting and informative programs. Field trips and workshops provide practical photographic experience. Special competitions (such as Digital Essay and Panorama) throughout the season challenge members to try new things. We also have a video lending library.
Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m., the third Tuesday of each month from September through June at the Medford Leas Community Center, Medford, NJ (1 Medford Leas Way, Medford, NJ 08055). Visitors are always welcome, at no charge!
