Summer Day Camp

*Voted best specialty summer camp and best summer day camp in New Orleans in 2015, 2016,  2017, 2018, and 2019 by The Nola Family Magazine! Come find out why!

We will have eight different sessions of day camp all with exciting themes and focuses for a variety of age groups. Find the camp(s) that is perfect for your camper. Each camp session will be an integrated learning experience, where campers explore different art forms, their own creativity, and much more! Our summer camp is exclusive, some sessions include 15 campers and other include just 6. These small numbers make it possible for us to easily take walking trips in the neighborhood, undertake in depth, multiple step projects, and allow the campers to help plan their own curriculum by asking questions or expressing interest in certain topics. At City Park Movement and Art's summer day camp all of our activities are small group activities and every camper has a voice!

Our summer camp is designed for kids 4 - 18 years old (some sessions will have older minimum age requirements).  We do not offer before/after care. Some camps are full day and others are half day.

Prices will vary depending on the session. If a camper attends multiple sessions, a $25 discount will be given for each session after the first.
