Making an IMPACT IN Central louisiana

I’m 19 now, but I have fond memories from my summers spent here nearly 10 years ago. I remember my camp counselors always being fun and being very engaged with the kids. I made so many friends over the summers and the days after school. I wish I could relive those days because they were definitely the best days of my life. I miss it so much. Very nostalgic.

Wonderful organization with great staff and offers a fantastic Summer Camp Day Care program. They include weekly field trips and daily crafts and swimming in a large pool with lifeguards. The also provide a swimming certification course for young children to learn pool safety and swimming.
