2023 Summer Camps

This summer at the Louisiana Children’s Museum campers will spend a fun-filled week playing and learning in our museum in the heart of City Park. Campers will spend the day playing in our outdoor and indoor exhibits as well as participating in weekly themed hands-on activities including daily story time and art projects. We will also have a weekly water day (5 day weeks only) to help beat the summer heat.
