Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include golf, tennis, swimming, arts & crafts, fun with foods, STEM projects, and so much more! Camp is open to children ages 4-10 years old, and runs in weekly sessions from June 3rd- July 26th. You do not need to be a member of Beau Chêne Country Club to attend camp… all are welcome!

  1. How can I get a camp added to your list for next summer?

  2. I think children should try also a Martial arts training camp. It’s fun, and while having fun they also learn. I like your blog. Good day!

  3. We are moving to the area May 26th and I would like to find a good soccer camp for my son who will be entering 1st grade next year. Any suggestions? We have Challenger soccer here in Missouri and a number of other private camps. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    • Archbishop Hannan has several sports camps so I’d check there first. I think that St. Paul’s in Covington might also offer a soccer camp of some kind. There’s also a soccer camp each year at Southeastern University in Hammond.

      • Amanda Reyes | May 22, 2017 at 9:34 am | Reply

        Christ Episcopal has one every summer also. You could contact them. And pelican park has a few throughout the summer too.

      • Northlake Christian School has a Baseball Camp June 25-28th Ages 5-12

        Snacks and T-shirt


    • Call Playmaker’s Sports

    • St. Paul’s High School in Covington has a soccer camp the week of July 16 through 20th. Also, Coah Greg and Coach Tony have a Soccer Campion at Christ Episcopal School May 30th through June 1st, June 25th through June 27th and July 23rd through July 25th. My son always enjoys these two soccer camps over the summer. CYSA (Covington Youth Soccer Association) may also be holding some soccer training sessions over the summer.

  4. Great robotics summer camp at Mandeville High School hosted by the robotics team!

    To summarize our camp, we create a “game” where students build robots about 8 inches by 8 inches in order to accomplish certain tasks based on the theme. We also allot time for other team-building and engineering activities.

    Campers will participate in a competition at the end of each week. Parents are invited to watch at 2 on Friday to see their child’s hard work.

  5. Just FYI….Slidell has more camps to offer than what is on the list, Our Lady of Lourdes has a summer camp as well as Gymnastics Plus.

    • We give as much information as we can find available. Gymnastics Plus has been on our list in years past but we weren’t able to find anything this year so they were omitted.

  6. Do you know of any daily drop in camps? I don’t want to necessarily commit to a full week, but a daily rate a day or two a week would be excellent.

    • You would have to call to verify this, but I think that X-fusion in Covington might allow drop ins. The Little Gym in Covington let’s you pick days but it’s only half a day.

  7. Hi, our son is 7 years old and has a diagnosis of Autism. He needs structure and social interaction but requires more adult help that other kids his age. any suggestions for camps on the northshore that may be geared more to his needs?

    • We get this question a lot and unfortunately there’s no one camp that’s specifically geared towards kids with special needs. I have known kids to attend Cedarwood camp that have autism and they have done well. They have a lot of adults present so that helps. Mike Storms in Mandeville is also pretty spectrum-friendly. I think that there are camps that would work with you–it’s just a matter of communicating and working together.

  8. Hey this is Mindy Paredes with X Fusion Family Arena, can you please update the Summer Camp listing from X Fusion Fitness Center to X Fusion Family Arena and the phone number as 985-327-7167.
    Camp ages are 4 and up, times are 7am-4pm with aftercare from 4-6pm. We also have sibling discounts!

    Thank You!!

  9. I know this is an odd question, but are any summer camps that do overnight ? Like back in the day? Lol just curious
