Camp Session Details

Aloha Summer

Let's kick off the summer right! The first session gives campers a taste of what is to come over the next 9 weeks. This week includes an extra swim day in the UREC outdoor pools, arts and crafts, games, and other engaging activities.

Sports Extravaganza

The summer continues with sport centered focus during session 2. Everything from dodgeball, basketball, soccer, and so much more. All abilities are welcome to come play and stay moving all week long. A special bowling field trip to All-Start Lanes is planned to strike up a bit of excitement this week.

Geaux Explorers

One of the best parts of summer is getting outdoors. Session 3 is perfect for campers who want to climb the UREC 35' climbing wall, fish the LSU lakes, and spend time under the sun (with sunblock, of course) adventuring to new heights.

Big Splash

Campers get a lil' extra pool time during the fourth session. The Aquatics team hosts the first ever "Tiger's Den Pool Day Games" event. This event holds numerous pool activities, friendly competitions, and most importantly, a great time for all levels of swimmers.

Party in the USA

It's the time of year to celebrate America. This week's art and crafts, games, and food focus around America's birthday. More information to come on this week!

Out in the Wild

Camp continues with a shortened 3 day week that includes activities, arts and crafts, pool time, and climbing. While it is a shorter week, the fun is capped of with a Friday field trip to the BR Zoo.

Geaux Tigers

Wear purple and gold all week as we celebrate the amazing LSU campus. Campers visit Mike the Tiger, followed by a trip to cheer inside Tiger Stadium. A campus visit is never complete without ice cream from the LSU Dairy Store. We got it covered...

Just Keep Swimming

More pool time is always the best way to spend summer. Camper's will work on a synchronized swimming routine throughout the week, also known as artistic swimming, to be preformed to all other campers and staff during the week.

Never Ending Summer

All great things don't have to come to an end. Campers create the memories that last a lifetime during the last session of summer camp with games, arts and crafts, activities, pool time, and climbing. Parents are invited Friday to celebrate the end of the summer at the first ever "Tiger's Den Field Day".
