Camp Flintlock was established in 1999 by Mr. and Mrs. Tim Langdon of Four Oaks, North Carolina, with the idea that "people—particularly children—should have the opportunity to learn about history by living it." 

What initially began as a  Colonial American themed residential summer camp has grown to include day camps, field trips, online events, overnight encampments, and live fife & drum performances, as well as partnerships with several Colonial American historic sites, where we assist with various festivals and re-enactments.

Meet the Staff
Our Facilities

The Camp Flintlock Staff are a family-friendly group of full- and part-time workers who enjoy sharing their love of history with the public. Below are some brief introductions to help you get to know our full-time employees.

Mr. Langdon

Mr. Tim Langdon's love for American history and the great outdoors emerged at an early age—as evidenced by his mohawk haircut when he was just five years old! While retaining these interests, he went on to receive his Bachelors of Science in Pharmacy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Today, Mr. Langdon helps to care for his aging mother while working full time as Owner & Director of Camp Flintlock. Mr. Langdon's favorite Camp Flintlock activity is Colonial Dress Up.

Ms. Anna

A long-time friend of the Langdons, Ms. Anna Felsher has worked with the family for years--from babysitting to homeschool tutoring to assisting with the care of Mr. Langdon's elderly mother--and now works for Camp Flintlock as Office Manager. Ms. Anna has helped to bring Camp Flintlock into the digital age with online registration forms and was instrumental in designing our new online programs. She even helps out at field trips from time to time! Ms. Anna's favorite Camp Flintlock activity is Indian Necklace Making.

There's no place like home!

With the exception of Mr. George, the Langdon family resides in an Eighteenth-Century-style log home which Mr. Langdon built himself with the help of family and friends. Langdons have lived in this area for over 150 years, and many of the neighbors are relatives. Camp Flintlock Headquarters is located on this same property, but the Camp Flintlock Campsite is located about a mile down the road.

CF Headquarters

1580 King Mill Rd

Up until 2015, Camp Flintlock was run entirely out of the Langdons' own home. Today--much to Mrs. Langdon's relief--the Camp Flintlock Headquarters are located in this warehouse on the Langdon family property. The facility houses all merchandise and supplies for the business, the main office, and the Camp Flintlock trucks and trailers--one for our local crew, and one for our away team.

Our Campsite

218 Hickory Grove Church Rd

The site of Camp Flintlock residential camp programs, most overnight encampments, and a number of Field Trips, our campsite boasts a hand-built log cabin, an outdoor kitchen, and an "Indian Village" complete with wigwam and a lean-to. The entrance to our campsite (pictured right) is marked by a low split-rail fence, two large flags, and a gravel track into the field that serves as the parking lot.
