The first Camden Bullets were an American basketball team based in Camden, New Jersey that was a member of the Eastern Professional Basketball League. The franchise was originally known as the Baltimore Bullets, where they had won the 1961 EPBL championship.

The franchise received a major boost when Paul Arizin, a member of the NBA's Philadelphia Warriors, chose to stay in Pennsylvania rather than move with the franchise to San Francisco. Still wanting to play basketball, Arizin suited up for the Camden Bullets, and helped the team become league champions in 1964.

After a disappointing 1965-66 season, the Bullets were sold and relocated to Hartford, Connecticut as the Hartford Capitols.
