Kidcam Uptown/Every Day Away (July) (on Broadway)
1100 Broadway Street, New Orleans, LA 70118
Program Update & Changes for June 2020 (and most likely July)
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 offering specialty, day camp activities. We will most likely continue this day camp, if full, through July 31. Every Day Away will not go on field trips in June. This could change in July. Read our Home Page update on Kidcam’s enrollment procedures and safety procedures as it relates to summer camp during this time.
During this time, we will take children starting at age 5, and we will likely continue this through July, even if field trips happen, our littles can stay on site.
At this time, we do plan on keeping our July program and field trip schedule, as planned, from both Uptown and City Park. If this changes, you will be given the option to refund or attend our Kidcam Day Camp program at the lower tuition rate.
Please email us at SummersRock@KidcamCamps.com with questions or call 504-274-1404.
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 7-14 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 older 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 on Broadway Ave, as well as our New Orleans Kidcam camp location at City Park.
Ready? Set. Let’s Go! We hope to see you on our bus this summer.
