As we reflect on our days at Camden High School, we are filled with fond memories and a deep desire to give back in a meaningful way. In late 2006, that desire took on a tangible form in the creation of the first website designed for and by CHS Alumni. It was created to keep us informed of the great accomplishments of fellow Alumni, and support the idea of forming an official alumni association. That same desire was burning inside of fellow alumni working at the “Castle on the Hill. In the Fall of 2007, Camden High School Alumni, who are faculty and staff, came together to develop the CHS Alumni Association of Camden N J. Throughout the school year of ‘07-’08 meetings were held. The alumni website developer met with the core group forming the Association, and in the fall of 2008 thehighalumni.org became the official website of the Association.
From October 2008 until now we have grown by leaps and bounds. To date we are over 950 strong and increasing our membership daily. In February of ‘09 we launched our Official Social Network, Castle Connections, where all Alumni, Faculty and Staff of CHS could keep in touch as well as make new friends. The Association was formed to encourage former alumni to get involved with the development of Camden High School. The goal has always been to make this organization the vehicle to encourage alumni to “roll up their sleeves” and make a difference. We seek to have every alumnus from Camden High School join our Association and strengthen our ability to change students’ futures.
During the second half of 2009 the associate sought to become a non-profit 501(c)3 and in January of 2010 we were granted official 501(c)3 status retro-active to July 21, 2009. With the Association in place, our dedication is serving the students, strengthening the community, and changing the current status of our recent past. We can increase college enrollment and form a successful graduation program. We expect to raise funds yearly to provide scholarships for students who desire to further their education. The Association also hopes to enhance the education of every student attending Camden High School.
We have adopted the Boys and Girls Clubs of Camden County NJ, and plan to mentor students to aid in their educational goals. With your help, the Camden High School Alumni Association of Camden, New Jersey will make the largest impact any non school program could ever make. We would love your support; we expect your help; and we know you will be there……. because you care.
“Remembering the PAST, Uniting the PRESENT, Empowering the FUTURE.”
