Academy of the Sacred Heart Summer Camp

Located In Uptown New Orleans; Ph: 504.269.1230



After an exhaustive assessment of all possible scenarios, we have determined that our Camp will not open this summer. 

Under the parameters, we must operate within and the risks that we would need to mitigate. We do not feel that the experience would represent the quality standards that our campers and their families are accustomed to and deserve.
