Summer @LSMSA registration opens March 1, 2021!

Camp Information

"Summer @LSMSA" allows students entering grades 7, 8, and 9 the opportunity to experience life at LSMSA for one week. Campers choose three courses to take and spend six hours a day learning in a fun, hands-on atmosphere; there are no grades or tests in any courses - just the experiences!

In the evenings, students will have a variety of activities to choose from that are organized and monitored by professional LSMSA residential life staff. Students have the option to stay overnight in the residence halls, or to go home each day after classes have finished. Either way, students have the chance to get a feel for the LSMSA experience in a fun and comfortable environment.

For the Summer of 2021, camp sessions will be June 6th - 12th, June 13th-19th, and June 20th-26th. Summer @LSMSA will be following the same COVID safety protocols as LSMSA, including smaller class sizes and private rooms for all campers. More information about courses and registration will be available following the Mardi Gras holiday in February 2021.

Registration is limited to one week (Session 1, 2, or 3) per camper.
