Single Day Photography Field Trips
The Gaithersburg Camera Club has launched a series of single day photography field trips that are within an easy drive from our hometown. Members with any level of experience are free to join us at a variety of locations.

Field trip - Eastern State Penitentiary, PA - 11/17/2015, 8:00AM

Eastern State Penitentiary, a national historic landmark in Philadelphia, represents the birth of prison reform in the early 19th century. From 1829 to 1913, this prison – the world's first penitentiary – aimed to lead hundreds of criminals to penitence through isolation, reflection, and labor. Confinement with solitude was discontinued in 1913, but the structure continued to house prisoners until 1970.
We plan to meet at the Park & Ride lot at Quince Orchard Road and I-270 (our usual meeting place) at 8:00 a.m. and arrive at Eastern State Penitentiary at about 10:30 a.m. Tickets prices are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $10 for students. You may also purchase a $10 equipment pass in order to use a tripod or monopod. This pass is valid for the entire season. There is no fee for handheld cameras.
