Sparta Camera Club is a friendly group of photographers from Sussex, Morris, Warren and Passaic Counties in northern New Jersey. We enjoy all types of photography with a full program from September through June including competitions, critiques, workshops, field visits, seminars, presentations and exhibitions. These programs are designed to appeal to photographers of all ages and all skill levels and experience. Some members have advanced equipment but this is not necessary to participate fully in our activities. All cameras, including  point and shoot and film models, are fine.

If you are interested in the club come along to one of our meetings as a guest - there's no charge and no commitment. If you’d then like to join it would be a pleasure to welcome you as a member. For more information about the club and our activities click HERE.

If you have any questions please email info@spartacameraclub.org

All photographers are welcome.   Just stop in!
