Kamerik is a town in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is a part of the municipality of Woerden, and lies about 3 km north of Woerden.

In 2010, the town of Kamerik (including Kanis) had 3808 inhabitants. The built-up area of the town was 0.43 km², and contained 877 residences.[1] The statistical district "Kamerik and Kanis", which includes two villages and the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 3050.[2] This does not include the separate villages of Kamerik-Mijzijde and Oud-Kamerik.

Until it was merged with Woerden in 1989, Kamerik was a separate municipality. Between 1818 and 1857, it was split into two municipalities: Kamerik-Mijzijde on the west side, and Kamerik-Houtdijken on the east.[3]
