Camp Tiger NOLA

Organized and staffed by first year medical students since 1985
LSUHSC School of Medicine in New Orleans

ABOUT

Camp Tiger was founded in 1985 by first-year students from the LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans. Its mission is to give disadvantaged and challenged children an enjoyable summer camp experience. For the campers, this may be their only chance during the summer to socialize with other children without being singled out for their disability. This week-long day camp lets campers be “just one of the kids” and provides them with freedom to play, socialize, and express themselves as healthy, vibrant children. Camp Tiger is organized and staffed each year by volunteers from the first-year class. Students look forward to the opportunity to work with these exceptional children and serve the community. Since its inception, Camp Tiger has benefitted over 1,500 children from the Greater New Orleans area. Attendance is free due to extensive fundraising efforts by first-year medical students. Camp Tiger celebrates its 29th anniversary of service to the New Orleans community and its surrounding areas.
