Food for Thought

Big Buddy has generously provided a grant for Kidcam of Baton Rouge the last 2 summers and we hope it will continue this summer. We believe that it will. If they do – they provide both breakfast and lunch. Campers may always bring their lunch. Campers must bring a waterbottle daily or they will be charged $1.00 per day when they do not arrive with a water bottle and a bottle of water will be provided to them. Snacks for afternoon and aftercare must be purchased for $2.00 per snack or may be brought with the camper.

If Big Buddy does not provide the grant – Campers may purchase breakfast, lunch, and snacks at camp using funds from the prepaid food account. Deposit funds, and any charges will be deducted. You may add more funds as needed. Do not add any funds to your prepaid food until closer until the start of summer. We will notify you by email of the grant status closer to summer.
Breakfast: $2.00 includes milk or juice
Lunch: $5.00 meal and drink
Snacks: $2.00 includes a snack and drink.
Menus vary by location; see weekly schedule for menu options

Registered campers will be notified no later than the week prior to camp if the Big Buddy food grant is not provided. Please remember that the food is provided by Big Buddy. Kidcam cannot control what is brought – it is free and nutritious.

Gear Up for Fun

Gear Kidcam t-shirts are $12 and must be worn to camp daily. Read more on gear below. A KIDCAM camp T-shirt must be worn to camp daily. T-shirts can be purchased for just $12 at our online Camp Store.

Our Camp Store also offers Camp Bags – we recommend the bags as they have a liner to keep the wet swimsuits and towels “wetness” inside the bag!

We also offer Water Bottles while supplies last. It is important to send water with your camper daily! They must stay hydrated!

Ages & Programs

Ages Boys and Girls entering Pre-Kindergarten* in Fall – 13.
Newbies *Children turning age 5 before 9/30/17 will enter the 5 year old program for their summer at Kidcam. For 43 years, Kidcam has provided a very special summer program for our young campers. However, we recently learned of a law that was passed stating that “Camps are defined as ages 5+. Kidcam is currently working with our state representative to modify this definition in the form of a bill in the upcoming April session. We are very proud of our Newbie program, and we hold ourselves to extremely high standards within our company. We are hoping we know the status of this law prior to the start of summer camp, and that we know more in early May. We plan to aggressively challenge this law, as we are the gap & transition for so many families during the summer months. We urge our parents of 3 & 4 year olds to still register for summer camp at Kidcam. If you do register and the law is not changed, we will provide a full refund.
Kidets Boys and Girls ages 5-6, and 7-9
Nexters Boys and Girls ages 10-13.

Weekly Themes & Fieldtrips

Weekly Themes Kidcam’s engaging weekly themes are action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity each week of camp. The Wacky World of Summer is the theme for summer 2017. Weekly schedules & field trips will be posted online soon.
Fieldtrips Campers aged 5-13 will attend off-campus field trips . Field trip costs are included in the weekly tuition. Sometimes campers may bring additional money for field trips, you will be notified in the weekly newsletter during the summer if that is the case for any specific field trip.

I enjoy being a part of the Kidcam summer experience and look forward to another exciting summer at DOWNTOWN!
