Summer History Camp: America at War | Kids Out and About Atlanta

Summer History Camp: America at War

The Civil War, World War I, and World War II each had a profound impact on Americans.

Spend the week learning about the causes and consequences of each war though the eyes of the men and women who lived it.

Enroll in the U.S. Army, fight in the trenches, decode classified information, and join women at work for the war effort. 

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

$300 per week for nonmembers


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.
