Summer History Camp: Pioneer House
Ages6-8 years 9-12 years
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.
