I saw this group on Facebook. They are very involved in Humanism and charity work. Where I live, there are not many groups around like the Camden County Humanists. They seem very dedicated and sincere. Sadly, my health does not permit me to get out and about much. As much as I would like to be involved in several non-profit orgs, I simply cannot. I try my best to follow the updates they post to their Facebook page. This group seems very active. I have seen pictures they have posted from several charity events. At my age, I'm not able to be as active as I would like to be, however, I highly recommend checking this group out!!!

Hello. My name is Gary. I have been an Atheist for quite some time now. I have lived in New Jersey all my life. My job requires that I travel up and down the eastern seaboard, so I find it very difficult be involved in local groups as much as I would like to be.
I am sure that will change when retirement arrives. haha. Anyway, the closet Secular Humanist group to me is The Camden County Humanists. I am hoping to get involved with this group once work settles down. I have seen them twice already at the Blackwood Pumpkin Festival raffling off prizes to raise money for The Leukemia/Lymphoma society. This year, I was able to attend and buy a raffle ticket! I did not win, but that doesn't matter because all the money goes towards a great cause. I lost a cousin, who I was close to, to Myeloma. So, because of that and many other reasons, I admire the work they are doing and the way it resonates throughout the local community. I commend them for being a positive presence in my neighborhood. Keep up the good work, guys!

Hello. I admire The Camden County Humanists for all the effort they put into their fundraisers for various charities. Although they're a small group, they are growing every day. Their willingness to give their time to support Humanism throughout the Camden County area astounds me. I donated what I could towards their Light the Night campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I recently visited their donation page to see that they surpassed their goal by raising $1600 for Blood Cancer research. Even though I am not a member (yet), I will continue to help out and support my local Humanist group any way I can. These fine folks are an intricate part of the secular progression of New Jersey. Thank you for your time!

Camden County Humanists is a terrific organization that has done so much in such a short period of time. I appreciate their commitment to Light the Night and other activities -- what an excellent way to show how we are "good without God."

CCH is a wonderful group of free thinkers and humanists. They do charity work for the Light the Night walk a thon, and they provide a nice, friendly forum to discuss issues that affect us humanists. They are also an affiliate of the American Humanist Association.

Camden County Humanists is a good, energetic group. Their monthly meetings and dinners are a great place to discuss Humanist ideas, and current events. They are very active with fundraising for various charities, including the Light the Night Walk, for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Being a member of CCH was been a positive experience for me.

Camden County Humanists has done so much in such a short time. CCH has monthly meetings where Humanists and other nonbelievers can gather to talk about issues, philosophy, and life. CCH raises funds for public charities. It is thrilling to be part of this amazing group.
