For the most up-to-date announcements, event postponements, and cancellations for events in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, please monitor

We know that everyone is eager to know if Camp Abbey will move forward with some form of summer camp this year and what changes might be in store, including measures to keep campers and staff safe.

We want you to know that we are actively working on answers to these questions with our earnest hope to offer programming if it is safe and permissible. We appreciate your patience and prayers as we do our best to make decisions with guidance from civil authorities and a very fluid situation.

When decisions are made, we will communicate them on our website, on our Facebook page and via email to registered campers.

St. Kateri Tekawitha, pray for us!

To contact a member of our staff during this time, please email us. Contact information can be found here.
