Camp Flashback

Registration is now open for Dunwoody’s only kids’ history camp.

Only at Camp Flashback can kids have so much fun so close to home.

DUNWOODY, GA, Jan. 22, 2019 – At Camp Flashback, Dunwoody’s only kids’ history camp, kids don’t just read about the Olden Days. They live them. At Camp Flashback, kids spend their days at the historic newly restored Donaldson-Bannister Farm doing the things 1870s farm kids did back in the day.

Now back for its second summer. Camp Flashback offers children ages 7-12 four one-week sessions of learning and fun not far from home at a day camp right in the heart of Dunwoody.

At Camp Flashback, kids learn history by living it. No cell phones, no computers, no technology. Just plain old-fashioned fun!

 At Camp Flashback, kids will have fun learning to:

  • Hand-churn butter and ice-cream
  • Milk the goats
  • Feed the chickens
  • Groom a pony
  • Make and play board games
  • Plant herbs and sunflowers
  • Learn to weave and sew
  • Wash clothes with a washboard

Other activities include scavenger hunts and free play in the open pastures.

Sponsored and managed by Dunwoody Preservation Trust (DPT) and staffed by professional educators.

Inspired by the positive feedback from last summer, Camp Flashback director, James Walker, PhD, is returning for his second fun-filled summer, destined to be even better than the first, supported by a staff of other licensed educators with a low camper-to-staff ratio of just 5-to-1.

Conveniently scheduled, affordably priced.

Camp Flashback offers four one-week sessions. Campers can attend all four or just the ones that fit their schedule:

  • June 17-21
  • June 24-29
  • July 8-12
  • July 15-19

Each session offers both early drop-off and late pick-up, with tuition discounts for DPT members.

Registration is now open.
