Camp Stanislaus effectively combines recreational and learning activities during its four-week operation. Activities may include but are not limited to:
Sailing, water-skiing, archery, baseball, basketball, football, dodge ball, arts and crafts, swimming, fishing, marine biology, canoeing, volleyball, tennis, beach activities, ultimate Frisbee, weightlifting, barbecues, skit nights, and capture the flag. Activities vary from week to week, so not every activity is done during each camp session. Our major activities are sailing, water-skiing and fishing; these do occur each week. For a more detailed look at activities click here.
Resident campers who stay consecutive weeks also enjoy “Mystery Trips” on Saturday afternoons. Some of these trips include: WWII Museum in New Orleans , LA, Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, LA, the Aquarium and IMAX Theater in New Orleans, LA, USS Alabama Battleship in Mobile, AL, Louisiana Children’s Museum in New Orleans, LA, bowling, skating and the movies. A large magic show is another highlight for our campers. Some activities require attendance at the longer sessions and are assigned to specific groups.
The Difference Four Weeks Make
Each camp session offers a wide range of activities. However, resident campers attending consecutive weeks attend an off campus "mystery trip". There are typically no off campus trips during the one-week sessions. We focus on the core activities during that time. By attending more than one session, a camper participates in more activities and is able to better develop real skills in those activities. Other four-week extras include more instruction in activities, a better sense of ones self reliance, Improved social skills, and a better opportunity to develop the camper’s individual character formation.
