Welcome to Camp Tiger!
Camp Tiger invites children between the ages of 6-15 years old in the New Orleans, Northshore, Baton Rouge and Lower Parish metropolitan areas who are physically and/or mentally challenged to join us for a week-long day summer camp. We especially welcome those children who are unable to attend other camps available for special needs children.
With COVID-19 still present in our community and safety as our priority, this year, Camp Tiger will happen in an online format. We are currently hard at work, planning and organizing Camp Tiger, developing a Virtual Camp experience that we are excited about. We’re planning to pull out all the stops: a Camper Parade to pick up Camp supplies, professional videos to go along with our activities for the day (that can be watched year round), and asynchronous 1-on-1 time with campers and counselors with fun activities including crafts, talent shows, virtual tours, games, and baking.
Who staffs the camp? The camp is organized and staffed by first year medical students of the LSU School of Medicine. There are two medical students for every camper.
How much does it cost? The camp is free of charge for eligible children. Camp Tiger counselors cannot be responsible for delivering camp supplies to individual homes. Parents/guardians are responsible for seeing that camper supplies are picked up on time.
