Kidcam Day Camp Uptown Ages 5-8
Kidcam will offer an on-site Kidcam Day Camp at the Uptown location like we did in the early part of Summer 2020. Ages 5-8 will be able to attend this location and remain on site each day. Learn more here and register using the Uptown on Broadway location on our registration site under the New Orleans region.
As of now, Kidcam Camps will also host the favorite Every Day Away Uptown program with daily field trips and off-site adventures. Campers must be age 7 at the start of camp and should be a solid swimmer to be able to attend all of the swimming/water park adventures.
Campers will still be required to wear masks while riding on the bus and on field trips.
Limited Enrollment for 2021
At this time, we are planning again for a limited capacity at Kidcam for 2021 due to ever-changing Covid 19 guidelines. Please make sure you purchase at least the first 3 weeks you need camp. Given the potential limited space, we will close weeks once capacity is met for any given week. Only purchased weeks are guaranteed a spot for the summer. This is subject to change at any time, and we will monitor state guidelines and adjust protocol as needed.
Discover the Spirit of Summer through the power of Kidcam!
Kidcam Uptown is located at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit on Broadway. Campers will celebrate a different theme each week, while still incorporating their daily choice of activities ranging from Sports, Arts, STEM, Specialty Programs & Water Play. This allows campers to choose between a variety of new programs, activities and challenges led by their camp counselors.
The Uptown location offers the traditional day camp with daily on campus activities for ages 5-8.
Ages 7-8 can choose the day camp program where they stay on campus each day, or register for Kidcam’s specialty program, Every Day Away by Kidcam, where campers go off-site each day for a field trip.
Campers ages 9-14 should choose the attend Every Day Away by Kidcam.
Interested in Kidcam’s traditional Day Camp for an older camper? Consider Kidcam at City Park where any camper ages 5-13, will stay on campus each day.
Any off-site activities like swimming or simple, daily trips for ages 5-8 in our traditional Day Camp will be presented by the director and authorized by parents each week. This will change based on Covid-19 restrictions as we get closer to the summer.
If you have an older camper looking to participate in multiple Kidcam Camp programs, email or call us to adjust the registration fee so you only pay this once.
