Ages 6-8 and 9-11
Spend a week in and around our pioneer era Wood Family Cabin and learn everyday survival skills of the 1830s. While exploring the lives of the early settlers of this area and their relationship with neighboring Creek and Cherokee Indians, campers learn basic pioneer skills, such as cooking over a fire, distilling water, and constructing shelter.
History comes to life as Atlanta History Center summer campers explore the past through games, historic simulations, performances, crafts, and hands-on activities throughout our exhibitions, historic houses, and gardens. The entire 33-acre campus is our playground! With fun new themes each week, campers enjoy a variety of immersive camp experiences all summer long. Space is limited, so register early.
For more information, please contact the Summer Camp Director at 404.814.4018 or firstname.lastname@example.org. After registering for camp online, you will receive confirmation, information, and permission forms via email.
