The warm weather is here and it’s time to plan activities for the kids! Summer Camp always means new activities and new friends. Here are some of the interesting options available in Lafayette.

The Summer Scholars Program at the University of Louisiana Lafayette is a one-week residential program designed to “develop the academic, leadership, and/or creative skills of 7th and 8th grade students who have demonstrated high levels of ability in their school work, in the arts or in their daily lives.” It’s run by the Center for Gifted Education at UL.

Storypalooza is a collaboration between AOC Community Media, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and Cité des Arts. The three non-profits have teamed up for some interesting summer camp experiences. ASO will direct music and art classes, Cité Des Arts will focus on acting and theatre, and AOC will give the campers a hands-on learning experience with animation. Each camper will spend time at each nonprofit experiencing all spectrums of storytelling and developing their own story ideas into shows and productions at the end of each week. The first session begins June 4.

Lafayette Consolidated Government’s Parks and Recreation Department offers Summer Enrichment Programs at locations across Lafayette, including the Comeaux Recreation Center, George Dupuis Recreation Center, Girard Recreation Center, J.Carlton James Recreation Center, Martin L. King Recreation Center, Robichaux Recreation Center, and Thomas Recreation Center. Early registration begins April 19.

STM Summer Programs include Art, Academics and Athletics. They begin on May 30, with early registration on May 20.
