Camden County Reviews

Camden is the city of brotherly love! However, that brotherly love can turn into brotherly hate. Families killing families due to miscommunication and lack of education. Ignorance is bliss amongst these residents. They have strong work ethic and are determined, however, they are a product of their environment. With that said they are not qualified for the jobs present here in Camden. Many employees including police officers of Camden are not Camden residents, nor have they ever been. This is a crucial part because in order to really understand the issues here in Camden you have to have live a day in the life of a Camden resident. The social systems here have handicapped these residents rather than providing helpful services in order for them to succeed. My overall experience has been overwhelming. Trying to become successful in a city where success is not encourage, nor taught. More rather it is a self fulfilling prophecy.

Camden County is an average place to live. It is very nice but it is also very expensive. I would like to see taxes decrease and roads with out potholes. It is also unfortunate to constantly have to take a different root because of construction. Lately there has been a lot of different constructions on roads within a 10 mile radius. The construction causes a lot of traffic and angry drivers. I love that the beaches, Atlantic City, and Philadelphia are really close. Camden County is in the perfect spot between everything. Where every you want to go it is never a far drive. The public schools are amazing academically and athletically. There are a lot of restaurants and fast food places to choose from. Overall, Camden County is a nice place to live.
There’s a high crime rate. The town is very associated with gangs, drugs, and violence. The streets are bumpy and cracked up. Most stores aren’t kept well, and have poor customer service. The food however, is good. Not sure if it’s completely sanitary but it’s good. And there are a few places to get your hair braided nicely.
