The Board of Commissioners joined Camden City Mayor Victor Carstarphen, members of the Camden Community Partnership and Camden Special Services District to kick-off the 2022 summer season by announcing the return of Connect the Lots, which is a series of summer programs and events aimed at engaging the community by creating safe hubs of activity and quality programming for residents to enjoy in city public spaces and corridors.
Connect the Lots is brought together through a collaboration between the Camden Community Partnership, the City of Camden, Camden Special Services District, Camden County and the residents and stakeholders of the city’s neighborhoods.
“Connect the Lots is a special program here in the city of Camden that gives our residents and their families the opportunity to get out of the house, have some fun and participate in programs they’re interested in all summer long,” said Commissioner Jeff Nash, who serves as the liaison to the Camden County Parks Department. “From fitness classes to movie nights, concerts and more, this year’s lineup has something for everyone. We look forward to bringing this wide variety of activities to our community.”
Each year, Connect the Lots works with public and private partners to bring fun outdoor activities designed to activate city parks and underutilized spaces throughout Camden.
The season will begin with the Camden Night Gardens event on May 20th which will include food trucks, music, interactive activities and performers. The 2022 season also features a series of events providing special access to Cramer Hill Waterfront Park, a 62-acre waterfront green space that opened last November, as well as a downtown event series with Camden Special Services District featuring weekly concerts and an al fresco Salsa dance party.
