Because of circumstances related to Tropical Storm Barry, we have decided to postpone check-in for Girls Camp Week 3 until Tuesday morning, July 16 from 10:00am - noon. Campers will be served lunch.
The Bogue Falaya river is expected to crest on Monday afternoon. We are familiar with the heights at which the river will begin to affect roadways. The projected height of the crest gives us concerns about families traveling to and from the camp for check-in.
To contact us on this topic, please text (preferred) or call either the Director, Terri Trahan @ 504-450-2970 or the Assistant Director, Monique Pontiff @ 504-400-6278. Please include your camper's name and cabin name (if possible).
