Summer Camp Registration: Play and learn about Louisiana's diverse wildlife and impassion students to learn more about nature at Audubon Louisiana Nature Center. 

Louisiana's diverse wildlife will captivate and impassion students to learn more about nature. During summer camp, students will be engaged in a wide variety of fun activities, including everything from planetarium space shows and animal talks to collecting critters and team building! Through STEAM, students will learn how to solve problems and make sense of the world around them with fun problem-based and project-based activities! In the Wild Creatures session, campers will spend much of their time getting to know the animals in Louisiana’s backyard. Participants will learn how fun math and science can be with nature games! In the following week, students will explore relationships between different types of wildlife through adventure activities. Project adventure activities are designed to create leadership and communication through challenging initiatives. Campers will gain knowledge through group interactions that will form memorable social connections.
