Lions Camp serves the camper, the counselor, and communities.
Campers come from across the state and attend at no cost. While at camp they participate in activities such as archery, swimming, and even a talent show. In addition to a week full of fun activities, campers also gain valuable life lessons. These lessons teach independence, they remove the disability mindset, and they provide a social experience where everyone is treated as equal.
Counselors, high school to college-aged students, guide campers through daily life during activities and overnight. The camp serves counselors by teaching how to be a future parent, by growing a servant’s attitude, and by helping those less fortunate than themselves.
Camp serves the communities by bringing organizations together such as Lions Clubs, church groups, sports teams, pageant contestants, and even motorcycle clubs. All of these organizations pitch in, not for themselves but for Heaven’s Very Special Child.
Louisiana Lions camp offers a 100% free outdoor summer camp experience for the youth of Louisiana with respiratory disorders, special needs, juvenile diabetes, and childhood cancer.
