Summer Camp FAQ

When will your camps go on sale?

November 18th for members and November 25th for not-yet members.

Where can I find out more information about camp offerings?

Please visit our Kids Programs page here.

How do I register my child for summer camp?

All registrations take place online. To register your child, please visit our summer camp listings here.

Is there a discount?

Yes. If you hold a Family level membership or above with Atlanta History Center, you will receive a discount on camps.

Please note: You must be an active member to receive membership pricing. If you’re interested in obtaining a Family membership, please contact our membership team at or check out more info at

How can I find my membership number?

If you have your membership card, your number will be on the back. If you do not know your membership number, please reach out to Membership Services or Guest Experiences.

When will you send out field trip information?

We typically send field trip and camp specific information a week prior to the start of camp. Please note: Field trips will involve walking and may include MARTA travel by train.

What are your age minimums and maximums?

Campers must be within the age range for each camp at the time of camp, without exception. Please sign your camper up for the correct age group when registering.

  • Age minimum:
    • Atlanta History Center: Campers must be a rising 1st grader.
    • Margaret Mitchell House: Campers must be a rising 4th grader.
  • Age maximum
    • Atlanta History Center: Campers cannot be older than 11 years old at the start of camp.
    • Margaret Mitchell House: Campers cannot be older than 14 years old at the start of camp.

What if my child is too old to attend camp?

If your child has aged out of camp, we invite them to join us in our Junior Counselor program. Applications can be obtained by contacting Volunteer Services or visiting the Volunteer Services page here.

When does registration end?

Registration ends the Thursday prior to the camp start date, and we do not perform Day-of-Camp registrations. This also means we are unable to register a camper if someone cancels between the Thursday prior to the start of camp and the first day of camp.

What is your wait list policy?

We keep a close eye on our wait lists and will notify you immediately—by email and/or phone – if a spot opens for your camper. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours, we will move down to the next camper on the list. Please note: Listing a camper on the wait list does not guarantee admission.

What is your cancellation policy?

No refunds can be made for cancellations less than two weeks prior to the start of the selected camp. Each cancellation or change made more than two weeks before the first day of camp carries and administrative fee of $25. If you withdraw your child before the two-week deadline, you will receive a refund less the $25 fee.
