StM Summer Camp

St. Martin's offers three summer programs for children ages 18 months to 14 years old: Summer Day CampTheatre Camp, and George Cottage Summer Camp.

NEW for Summer 2021! St. Martin's is offering two sessions of Athletic Summer Camps to children in rising grades 1-8. 



Covid-19 Updates 
Throughout the 9-week program, campers will practice and be educated on healthy hygiene practices. Directors will design a schedule for cleaning and disinfecting the classrooms during the camp day to ensure the safety of all children and staff.

Procedures will be adjusted to limit the sharing of materials and to practice physical distancing. Activities that would normally take place indoors will be modified to allow children to enjoy themselves outside. Carpool and lunch procedures will be revised to maintain static groups. Large camp gatherings will be modified and held via Zoom, so that campers and staff could still be “together” but at a distance.

Additional staff will be on hand to maintain cleaning and disinfection in bathrooms and on playgrounds. We will make adjustments to our plan as circumstances demand, and as we receive additional guidance from health officials, government leaders, and the CDC.

About the Waitlist
We encourage everyone to join the waitlist. All waitlist campers are placed on the waitlist by session, age, and application date. Campers are added to sessions that have availability in the age group requested. Movement on the waitlist generally begins after Mardi Gras and continues throughout the spring depending on how many enrolled campers change their summer plans. If we receive a cancellation for the session of your choice, you will be notified by email and by phone. You will have 24 hours to respond. After that, we will contact the next family on the list.



Summer Day Camp

StM's Summer Day Camp programming includes American Red Cross swim instruction, a carnival, Blue vs. Red Challenge, Wet and Wild Day, the Culminating Show, yoga, cooking, sports, arts, drama, and much more!

The camp is accredited by the American Camp Association, the only nationwide organization that accredits all types of organized camps. StM Summer Day Camp is one of just a few accredited day camps in Louisiana.

Campers will experience all that St. Martin’s 18-acre property has to offer. Facilities include full-size gymnasiums, the 5,000 sq. ft. Gibbs Family Center for Innovation + Design, the 500-seat Solomon Theater, the Merrick Art Center, the Peyton Student Center, indoor swimming pool, lighted football field, all-weather track, and outdoor classroom spaces.

Uptown Shuttle
An uptown shuttle is offered for StM campers! The bus, complete with seat belts, picks up campers at Broadway and St. Charles in Uptown at 8:30 a.m. An StM Summer Camp staff member rides with the campers each morning and afternoon. The bus returns the campers to the uptown shuttle stop at 4:45 p.m. each day. A staff member ensures all campers are safely delivered to their parent/guardians.

The shuttle costs $100 per session. Riders are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Capacity on the Uptown Shuttle will be limited in accordance with current state guidelines.
