Kidcam Uptown/Every Day Away (July) (on Broadway)
1100 Broadway Street, New Orleans, LA 70118
Program Update Summer 2020
For the month of June, Kidcam Camps will host a day camp at The Chapel of the Holy Spirit on Broadway and Zimple for 40 children, ages K-13, offering specialty, day camp activities through Thursday, July 2.
Starting July 6, Every Day Away Uptown will resume with a modified field trip and activity schedule. We will still take campers starting at age 5, but they must attend all field trips and adventures.
The modified field trip schedule will stay within the GNO area, with no bus trip longer than 30 minutes with age appropriate activities. We will also do on-campus activities and trips on certain days of the week.
Please email us at SummersRock@KidcamCamps.com with questions or call 504-274-1404.
See modified trip and activity schedule below.
Ready. Set. Let’s Go!
Every Day Away is a summer day camp concept, brought to you by 46-year summer camp experts, Kidcam Camps. Now in its 5th summer, Campers ages 5-14 will not stay put, but get off campus every day as they enjoy new destinations & surprising excursions. We don’t just hit the road, we get out of town!
Every Day Away offers a unique day camp experience each week allowing our campers the opportunity to get out and about each day. They make amazing memories with new friends, enjoy times with old friends who return year after year or join them from school circles. It allows them to “get out of their daily bubble” in a different way, all while providing them a feeling of some new-found independence with safe adventures and stimulation that tests their strengths and possibly even helps them overcome some fears.
Boredom is banished with these daily field trips giving campers a chance for creative exploration and exciting adventures around every turn.
Daily busses depart from Uptown only this summer.
