The Lancaster Camera Club was organized in the early 70s by a group of dedicated photographers. Membership was encouraged among both amateurs and professionals.

The Lancaster Camera Club is a friendly club where you can improve all your aspects of photography. In addition to the regular meetings, there are field trips and trips to photographic events and meetings.

Several photographic competitions are held each year. These events are designed for photographers of all levels and interests. They are aimed at improving the photographic skills of the membership.

Periodically there are lectures by visiting photographers and industry professionals. These training sessions help develop a photographer’s skills and an appreciation for the art of photography.

Membership is for everyone who has an interest in photography. Please join with us and become a member of The Lancaster Camera Club.

Meetings are held at:
Mellinger Mennonite Church
Fellowship Hall (Use rear entrance)
1916 Lincoln Highway East
Lancaster, PA 17602

Our club activities are developed by our Board members. The board generally meet four times per year. We are always looking for new ideas and things to try so don’t be shy about sharing your inspirations! We hope you enjoy membership in the Lancaster Camera Club and can be active with us for many years!
