Antic, The Atari 8-Bit Podcast delved into the short history of the Atari Summer Camps in a recent episode.

Atari Summer Camps took place only two summers in locations throughout the country but they left behind a lot of memories and early ’80s computer ephemera, which are all explored in great detail in the almost two hour podcast.

  1. Hi, I’m the person who put together that podcast episode. Turns out the Atari camp happened over three summers — but the third year, the campers and staff were all but abandoned by Atari, which had just been sold to the Tramiel family.
