Live Oak is a summer sleep away camp that is building a one-of-a-kind network of New Orleans future leaders through the fun, friendship, and leadership development found at summer camp.  

In the last three years our camp has connected a diverse community of more than 500 outstanding kids from 60 public, private, and independent schools across New Orleans. This includes schools as far ranging as KIPP, Lusher, Newman, Firstline, and Metairie Park Country Day.  

We start with the magic of summer camp and infuse it with leadership development programming to connect a racially and socioeconomically community of kids who otherwise would have limited avenues to meet as peers and friends. After camp we continue to invest in  relationships with one another through three Live Oak reunion events back in New Orleans throughout the fall and spring. 

We recruit and enroll a range great campers, some of whom can pay full tuition ($1,700) and some of whom need a scholarship to help make camp possible.  In 2018 we will expand to reach 300 new and returning campers.
