Tiger’s Den Summer Camp
LSU University Recreations Tiger’s Den guiding principles are Fun, Enthusiasm, Compassion, Discovery, Humility, Leadership, and Community. These principles serve as the foundation for our activities, which are designed to impact and encourage social growth in our campers, in areas such as teamwork, community living, healthy sportsmanship, and positive competition. We combine creativity and cooperation with individual challenges, which impact critical thinking skills and encourage a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem.
Personal and physical growth also tends to occur naturally and their individual gains such as honesty, trust, communication, and friendships are some of the dividends. We see camp as the special opportunity for a child to experience the fun and excitement to be found on campus, in an environment that removes the academic and social pressures that are a part of our children’s lives. Our plan is that this experience satisfies that need with happy, relaxed, but well-structured programs.
Our goal is that all who attend Tiger’s Den receive a supremely unique experience, one that is treasured and cannot be found elsewhere. LSU UREC Tiger’s Den is a recreational experience that provides fun and comprehensive camp programming for children ages 6 to 12, where each session is filled with sports activities, structured games, sports skill instruction, and interactive educational activities, all incorporating Tiger’s Den Values.
We offer 10 different, 1-week sessions, to ensure your children are learning, playing and having a blast all summer long. Registration is NOW OPEN for the Baton Rouge Community. Lunch, snacks and a free t-shirt are all included in the registration cost.
