MedCamps of Louisiana is a non-profit 501c3 organization that provides a residential camping experience free of charge to children living with special needs.

Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of people living with chronic illnesses and disabilities through unique recreational and educational camping experiences!! MedCamps of Louisiana holds a series of one-week, fun-filled camps each summer free of charge for children in Louisiana facing the challenges of a variety of physical and mental disabilities. These include spina bifida and orthopedic conditions, cerebral palsy, asthma, sickle cell anemia, autism, epilepsy, visual impairment, hearing impairment, speech impairment and those developmentally disabled.

A different camp each week
Every week during the summer a different camp is held. Each camp is designed specifically for a particular type of disability – and that includes appropriate health professionals, specially trained staff and tailored activities. (Prior to camp, each parent or guardian is responsible for providing the camp office with the details of the camper’s medical management program as prescribed by the camper’s physician.)
