Dear Parents,

We have great news! We WILL be having Camp Pelican this year.  After a great deal of time, effort and planning by our Medical Committee, we have decided to have camp this summer-but will need to have restrictions and guidelines in place to make sure all of our campers and staff are in the safest possible environment.

Camp will be held from June 5-11th at the Louisiana Lions Camp.

The following guidelines/procedures will be required to attend camp in 2022.

All campers will be required to be vaccinated. (2 doses of the vaccine are required)

  • If your child has not been vaccinated and would like to attend camp, then the 1st vaccination must be completed by April 5th and the 2nd by May 5th.
  • Boosters are recommended-not required.
  • There will be NO Medical or Religious exemptions.


The following guidelines are what we have put in place at this time.  They are subject to change based on CDC guidelines, state guidelines or decisions made by our Medical Committee.

  • We will do Rapid Covid testing at Check In for all campers and staff
  • Campers will be allowed to come to camp once they have a negative test.
  • If you are dropping your child off to us in NOLA, you will not have access to the buses and we will check your child in for camp from your car to minimize your interactions with other campers, parents and staff going to camp.
  • If you are dropping off your child at camp, you will not have access to the buildings and we will check your child in for camp from your car to minimize your interactions with other campers, parents and staff at camp.
  • Campers will NOT be required to wear masks on the buses or at camp.
  • We will be providing and using hand sanitizers, washing hands, etc. throughout the day.
  • Camp activities will be made as safe as possible. (limiting #’s in buildings, providing outside activities, etc.)
  • If anyone tests positive at any time, they will be isolated and sent home. (Someone will need to pick them up)
  • There will not be a family program on Friday night. All campers will ride the bus or be checked out on Saturday morning.

Please note:

These guidelines are for 2022.  We understand that you may not agree with them or you may not be able to comply with them.  Please be patient and remember that we are doing what we can to provide a safe environment for all of the children that we serve.  It is going to be very challenging for ALL of us as we move forward.  But, we want your children to have the opportunity to attend camp.  We miss our campers and all that comes with our very special program.

Applications are now online.  We would appreciate you letting us know if you are planning to send your children to camp as soon as possible.  The deadlines will be enforced, but we also need to plan for buses, etc. and will be have to put up deposits on some things.  If we could get an idea of what your plans are, it would be very helpful.  Please respond to this email or send a message.

Thank you for always trusting us with your children and allowing us to provide this great opportunity for them. We will all have to be flexible and work together to make this happen.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

The Camp Pelican Team
