Camp Session Details

Summer Bonanza

Let's kick off the summer right! The first session gives campers a taste of what is to come over the next 10 weeks. This week includes an extra swim day in the UREC outdoor pools, arts and crafts, games, and other engaging activities.

Reach New Heights

One of the best parts of summer is getting outdoors. Session 2 is perfect for campers who want to climb the UREC 35' climbing wall, and spend time under the sun (with sunblock, of course) adventuring to new heights on the Challenge Course.

Geaux Wild

Camp continues with fun activities, arts & crafts, and true wild fun with a trip to the Baton Rouge Zoo as the cherry on top for an exciting week.

Splash and Dash

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.

Be Like Mike

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. Campers will know what it feels like to be an LSU Tiger!

Red, White, and Blue

It's the time of year to celebrate America. This 3 day camp week will include arts and crafts, games, and food focus around America's birthday. Each day will be a different color, so check out those days soon! 

Outdoor Explorer

Campers will see how much there is to do outdoors. Our Outdoor Adventure team will show different ways to explore with a scavenger hunt, different ways to camp, and other fun activities to do outside.

Under the Sea

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.

Geaux for the Gold

With the Summer Olympics approaching, campers will compete in various games to see who will get the gold medal in our Tiger’s Den Olympics!

Fall Fest

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".
