The Get Healthy Camden program focuses on implementing strategies that support access to affordable healthy food and increased opportunities for safe physical activity for residents. Organized through the Camden Collaborative Initiative, Get Healthy Camden advocates for safe walking and biking routes to schools, improving access so families can play safely in city parks, trails, and recreational spaces, and promoting childhood development through healthy food and physical activity.
Recognized as a leader in sustainability practices, Camden offers a wide variety of choices to help preserve the environment. Organizations and individuals can get involved by sponsoring a wide variety of programs planned and implemented through the Camden Collaborative Initiative (CCI). Program areas include community environmental education, tree plantings, recycling, green infrastructure, water and air quality and more.
The CONNECT THE LOTS program is a community- driven initiative serving over 10,000 residents each year. The goal of the program is to activate vacant or underutilized spaces through the identification and implementation of artistic, cultural, and recreational projects. Through strategic programming and collaboration, activities in these spaces create safe and vibrant gathering places for the community bringing arts and culture to residents throughout the city.
Small businesses are often the backbone of local economies. Programs aimed at strengthening the support and development of Camden’s small business community include, local sourcing programs, façade improvement, mentorship, training, financing, and startup incubators. Organizations can get involved in any of these programs through sponsorship, angel investment, and participation in mentoring and training events.
