About Camp at LCM

Join us for camp at the Louisiana Children’s Museum. Campers will participate in a variety of themed STEM, art, movement and literacy activities in addition to exploring our indoor and outdoor galleries. Due to the nature of this camp we can have multiple transitions throughout the day as well as interactions with the public. We require that all campers be 4 years of age by the date of camp, no exceptions will be made. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age prior to the start of camp. We also require that campers be fully potty-trained to register for camp as the expectation is that each child can independently use the restrooms without assistance.

2024 Summer Camp

Our 2024 Summer Camp is coming! Mark your calendars as registration will go live on Tuesday, February 27th at 10:00 a.m.

We are excited to welcome campers back to the museum for a summer full of exploration! This year, we are taking our popular themes and repeating them for the second half of summer. Activities will be the same for each theme session, allowing for more opportunity for families to explore a theme if spots were not available in an earlier session.
