Kidcam Chappapeela (New Location)
Kidcam Summer Camp is excited to announce our partnership with Chappapeela Sports Park for our 2017 summer camp location. Chappapeela is located just north of I-12 in Hammond.
This new opportunity will give campers ages 3-13 access to more large indoor space, better green space, sports fields, 3 playgrounds and an onsite Splash Pad, while still being able to offer the great Kidcam program and summer curriculum.
Campers ages 3-13 will enjoy the same 43-year Kidcam programming & staff and committment to summer excellence as all of Kidcam’s 23 summer camp locations. Weekly field trips & swimming (ages 5+) and a curriculum built around Wacky & Wild art, science and games will help make up the perfect Kidcam summer.

Preschool campers have all activities on site.|
|Newbie Helpful Tips|
- Label all clothing and belongings
- Have your camper wear his swim suit under his camper clothes when a water activity is scheduled in the morning. This will save time changing in and out of swimsuits and allow for more play time.
- Send a labeled nap pad or mat, along with a pillow and any other comfort item (blanket, etc) for naptime each afternoon. Pads and pillows may be kept at camp during the week, but are sent home on Fridays to be washed. |

|Fieldtrips||Campers aged 5-13 will attend off-campus field trips on a licensed bus. Field trip costs are included in the weekly tuition. If you do not want your child to go off campus, you must request this in writing to the camp director.|
I am so honored and excited to be a part of Kidcam Summer Camp for a 4th year at St. Thomas Aquinas. You and your child are going to have an amazing summer experience at our camp!
I am currently employed at St. Thomas Aquinas High school as facilities manager. This is my third year holding this position but I have been part of the STA staff for the past ten years as head boys cross country and track and field coach and assistant girls cross country and track coach. We have been extremely successful winning six team state titles.
I was born and raised in New Orleans graduating from Archbishop Shaw in 2003. I ran cross country and track at Southeastern Louisiana University, graduating in Industrial Engineering. I taught physical education and Spanish (I am bilingual!) at Trafton Academy from 2005-2014. I have worked for the past twelve years as a track coach and meet organizer for the Southeast Louisiana Track club.
I look forward to another summer filled with fun here at Kidcam Camp! |
