Camden Central School District Spirit Week/Homecoming

September 30th-October 8th, 2022

Each Fall, the Camden Central School District hosts its annual Homecoming Festival. This event is not just a celebration of our schools and our alumni, but also celebrates what it means to be from the Queen Village, and the many communities that comprise our vast District.

Our 2022 theme is "Country Living and Farming in Central New York".

We have created this webpage in hopes of providing more centralized information about the events on a yearly basis. Come celebrate with us!
