The Kawartha Camera Club was formed in 2012 to bring together photographers, new and experienced, and provide a venue to learn basic and advanced skills required to create more compelling photographs. We are a very active group of people who enjoy learning from each other in a hands-on approach in an enjoyable, social atmosphere.

Our Goals

  • Community involvement

  • Photographic education

  • Forums for members to present their photos

  • Promote an enjoyable, social environment

  • Monthly themes to challenge you to get the most out of your camera

Meetings and Outings

The Kawartha Camera Club meets weekly on Thursday evenings throughout the year. During the warmer months, we are outside at various locations in and around Peterborough. In the winter we meet indoors at the Jewish Community Centre (775 Weller St.) and discuss a particular topic relating to photography (e.g. macro, portraits, food, etc.). These sessions include an opportunity to practice using your camera.

On the second Saturday of the month, a monthly outing provides an opportunity to spend the better part of a day at a particular location to focus on photography. At the beginning of each month, a photographic challenge is proposed to the membership and is generally open for interpretation.
