Enjoy everything Camden County has to offer!

Camden County is on a mission and we want your FB 'likes.' This may seem strange, but there is a very good reason – we need you to get more involved and enjoy our services! Check out these top five reasons to 'like' Camden County on Facebook right now:

1. We plan your family fun

Our Facebook page lists so much to do, so close to home. The Freeholder Board sponsors concerts, festivals, sporting events, and ice skating just to name just a few. The green space of Camden County Parks System offers you over 2,000 acres of natural settings for picnics, family gatherings, a wealth of playgrounds, and a variety of ball fields, along with beautiful waterways for fishing and boating. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, there is always something for every member of your family to enjoy in Camden County.

2. We keep you moving

We use Facebook to keep you updated on improvement projects in your area and roads you should avoid on your daily commute.

The highway department maintains over 1,400 lane miles of county roadway and 50 bridges. They’re dedicated to keeping you informed about county highway construction projects and other road maintenance advisories.

3. We keep you safe and healthy

Leading up to a hurricane or during other emergency events, important information is posted to our Facebook Page. The Freeholder Board’s Department of Public Safety conducts planning and training to address emergency situations that could affect your family.

You can also stay informed on Facebook about inspections at your restaurants, schools and other places of business. We also routinely share information on available health screenings, immunizations, resources for families dealing with addiction, and much more to keep your family safe and healthy.

4. We salute our veterans

The Freeholder Board’s Office of Veterans Affairs has been recognized for the outstanding work they do on behalf of our military service members. In addition to organizing the annual Memorial Day observance at the Camden County Veterans Cemetery, the Veterans Day service and the Veterans Prayer Breakfast, they provide assistance and information on the services available to Camden County Veterans and their dependents. The Freeholder Board also created the Camden County Military Service Medal to honor the men and women who have made Camden County proud by serving their country with honor and valor.

5. We keep your seniors active

Bingo! You found where to find all of Camden County’s activities for senior citizens. We host a variety of community activities throughout the year geared to those 55 and older. From dances to exercise classes, bingo and free legal workshops, seniors have access to numerous educational, recreational, and entertainment opportunities in Camden County. The annual Camden County Senior Health Fair features dozens of health information tables, games, prizes, and flu shots for all senior citizens who attend the event.
