2022 Summer Camp Guide for New Orleans

Updated: May 28, 2022

The moms of Black New Orleans Moms got together to share some of the best camp options for parents this summer. With summer right around the corner, we wanted to give the moms (and dads) a headstart on finding childcare for the summer months. From digital media to etiquette to STEM camps, there is something for everyone! We also added a couple of places that provide swim lessons over the summer for your little ones!

Be Loud Camp is a jam-packed week of digital media production, creative play, and community building. Campers (incoming 3rd through 6th grade) explore a wide range of digital media skills (making radio shows, music beats, and movies), build new friendships, and gain the confidence to speak up for themselves. Scholarships are also available for interested families! You can reach out to Alex for scholarship info at

Throughout each weekly theme at AWE Camp, your child will be an Engineer, a Scientist, an Explorer, a Designer, an Artist, and come out with a true desire to understand the world that they live in. Their goal is to create a space for children to ASK questions about the world around them, WONDER about solutions to problems that they face today and will face tomorrow, and EXPLORE to make discoveries in order to construct knowledge and gain an understanding of different facets of science through the lens of STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics) and the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
