Explore the past through games, historic simulations, and more!
History comes to life at Atlanta History Center Midtown as campers explore the past through games, historic simulations, museum theatre performances, historic arts & crafts, and hands-on activities.
All summer 2021 camps are in-person and will take place at the Margaret Mitchell House on the Atlanta History Center Midtown campus located at 979 Crescent Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30309.
Themes will include the importance of learning about and celebrating world cultures, youth activists throughout history, early American history and how we became the country we are today, and an in-depth look at the history of theatre and theatrical performance. Specific activities are subject to change without notice.

To keep guests and campers safe, camp sessions will include the following policies and protocols:
Mandatory Face Coverings
Parents must provide campers with facemasks (if students do not have a facemask, one will be provided to them) which will be worn at all times except when consuming food or beverages.
Frequent Hand-Washing Breaks
In addition to hand-washing after each activity and bathroom break, parents must provide campers with a personal hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer stations will also be available throughout the Midtown Campus.
Camp sessions will have a maximum of 15 campers with 1 instructor per camp.
Campers will sit at opposite ends of 6ft tables in a large, ventilated room. Snacks and lunch will be consumed with additional distance between campers and will be eaten outside when weather permits.
Campers will have their own container of activity and craft supplies for the entire session—no sharing will be allowed.
Staff will take the temperatures of every camper and camp instructor at check-in. Any camper with a fever above 99.4 will not be permitted to attend camp. Any camper that appears unwell will also not be admitted to camp. If a child has been in contact with anyone who is presumed positive or has tested positive for COVID-19, parents must inform Atlanta History Center immediately, and the camper will not be permitted to attend camp. If any child expresses or exhibits symptoms of illness, they will be immediately isolated and parents contacted for pick-up. If any camper tests positive for COVID-19, all campers will be sent home and the camp will be closed until further notice.
Areas of heavy contact (tables, doorknobs, etc.) will be disinfected after each activity.
Under Georgia law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering these premises if such and injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19. You are assuming this risk by entering these premises.
