Made in 1974 – Celebrating 45 Kidcam Summers
This great camp location in Destrehan offers campers all the things they love about Kidcam, plus a vast amount of indoor space and outdoor playing space both on campus, as well as at the playground area just across the street. Campers at Kidcam in Destrehan swim twice a week at Hill Heights Country Club and take one off-campus field trip.
Kidcam’s engaging weekly themes are action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship, and creativity each week of camp. This year’s theme, “Made in 1974 – 45 Kidcam Summers,” celebrates Kidcam’s 45th year in operation. Campers will celebrate a different theme each week, while still incorporating their daily choice of activities ranging from Sports, Arts, STEM, Specialty & Water Play. This allows campers to choose between a variety of new programs, activities and challenges led by their camp counselors. Weekly schedules & field trips will be posted online no later than the Friday prior to each week a camper attends. Themes & field trips will be added to accounts beginning in March under the Kidcam Way dropdown menu. Campers love the huge ballroom for arts & crafts, performances and just escaping the heat, as well as many smaller breakout rooms for our individual group activities.
