Summer in New Orleans is hot and LONG. It's endless days of cooling off at Cool Zoo, enjoying snowballs from our favorite stands, summer vacation, and fun. 

On top of all the fun, many of us have to work and keeping the kids entertained and safe all summer long can be exhausting and expensive. Don't worry. We've got your back.

We can help you find the BEST Summer Camps in New Orleans that your children will LOVE.

Our New Orleans Summer Camp Guide, sponsored by Arden Cahill Academy, is filled with the best summer camps in the Greater New Orleans area for all ages, including day camps, sleep away camps, camps for all budgets, vacation Bible Schools, and more.

Remember due to COVID-19 Guidelines most local summer camps are still working on limited enrollment.

Arden Cahill Academy's Camp Corral

3101 Wall Blvd., Gretna, LA; Ph. 504-392-0902


Come have a “whale” of a summer on the beautiful 12-acre country campus of Arden Cahill Academy’s Camp Corral.

For over 50 years, Arden Cahill Academy’s Camp Corral has offered a relaxed environment with plenty of indoor and outdoor space where children continue to grow and develop during the summer months under the supervision of qualified teachers and experienced instructors.

Recently voted the #1 SUMMER CAMP in the New Orleans area, Camp Corral offers 10 weeks of summer activities and events!

All activities take place on our campus. Join us for a packed schedule of horseback riding, swimming, art, theater & pretend play, sports, game room, petting farm, archery, riflery, laptop lounge, and STEAM lab.

A weekly theme guides events for each week. Space, Dinosaur, and Adventure Week are always big hits! Blue & white days, rodeos, theatre productions, the overnight camp ” in,” and buddy days are not to be missed! Make a splash on the giant waterslide that is set up in the swimming pool area daily. Language Arts and Math, academic enrichment classes, are offered as session options.

Camp Corral is conveniently located in Gretna on the West Bank (10 minutes from the GNO Bridge).

Please note that as we approach the start of camp, we will assess what the CDC guidelines are for operating camps and decide if we will open up spots to weekly campers or continue with full session registrations only. We were pleased to have successfully run a safe, clean, fun-filled camp last summer and look forward to Camp Corral 2021.

Campers of all ages love Camp Corral. Whether they are little ones, tweens, or teens, we have something for everyone. We hope to have your camper with us this summer to join in the fun and make friendships that will not be forgotten!

I just wanted to take a moment this morning to say thank you for another wonderful camp experience for our daughter this summer. While she was only able to attend the 2nd session, we could not have been more pleased!! Of course we had some hesitations about sending her at all with the current state of the world but you all always go the extra miles to help put us parents at ease. Thank you for running such a smooth pick-up and drop-off process! Your staff is always so friendly and the fact that you all take the time to know her by name touches our hearts. We appreciate every extra precaution that was taken! It was such a relief that she could still enjoy a great summer camp experience and feel some normalcy by interacting with others. So thanks again for being everything and then some!! We appreciate you all! – Camp Corral Summer '20 Stingray Group Parent
