Did you Know? (June 2023) Posted on June 26, 2023August 7, 2023 by Guy Gasser The APS Summer Seminar in Philately first began in 1980. Contrary to the belief of some, it never was actually named Stamp Camp. However, in 1990 the term Stamp Camp first appeared in The American Philatelists. This lasted until 1994 after which the named just stopped being used. The name still lingers today as many still refer to Summer Seminar as Stamp Camp. Grow Philatelty - SHARE!!
