Summer History Camp: 1968 | Kids Out and About Atlanta

Summer History Camp: 1968

Discover the turbulent year that was 1968.

The Tet Offensive in Vietnam takes the battle from the jungle to the cities, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life is cut tragically short, Apollo 8 begins the first U.S. mission to orbit the moon, the Summer Olympics are held in Mexico City, Boeing’s 747 has its maiden voyage, and the first Big Mac is sold. 

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.


$250 per week for Atlanta History Center members at the Family Membership level

Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Students not participating in extended childcare (see below) may be dropped off after 8:45 am and picked up between 3:45 pm and 4:00 pm. 

Each week concludes with a special Friday afternoon event featuring a display of campers’ projects. 


The Atlanta History Center is located at 130 West Paces Ferry Rd, Atlanta, Georgia, 30305.

Extended Childcare:

Morning session, 8:00 – 9:00 am, and/or afternoon session, 4:00 – 5:00 pm daily. There is a $25 additional charge per session.

Please note: 

Children cannot be dropped off before 8:00 am and must be picked up by 5:00 pm. Regrettably, due to staffing considerations, we must impose a late charge of $1 per minute due at pick-up if a child is not picked up on time.


Campers must bring their own lunch each day. Light snacks will be provided daily.
