A Word from the Camp Program Director


The struggle that many of them face on a daily basis is something that most of us do not understand fully. Giving these wonderful friends of ours a great experience is one of the main purposes of champions camp. Champions camp is a camp experience designed specifically for people with special needs.

Our hope is that you will share in our excitement of what this camp can mean to people in Louisiana. Please look closely at this information and then share it with anyone that you feel would be blessed by this experience. Also, please share with anyone you know that would love to be a part of this camp experience as a buddy.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us in the children’s ministry office at the Louisiana Baptist Building. My email is and the direct line to the children’s office is 318-449-4226.

What is This?

This is a new camp held once a year in the summer and is designed especially for kids and adults with special needs who are age 8 and up. During the camp, Campers will enjoy games, activities, worship and Bible time designed with their special needs in mind.

Who Can Come To This Event?


Campers are children and adults from age 8 and up who have intellectual or developmental disabilities


A buddy is a responsible teen or adult (16 years and up) who has the desire to serve with those with special needs. They can be people who have worked or work currently with special needs individuals or anyone else who wants to serve those with special needs. Previous experience working with special needs is NOT required.

***Campers must have no life threatening condition nor contagious disease. All disabilities must be listed on the online registration form. A responsible adult or teen, designated as a buddy, must accompany each camper. Campers that do not have a buddy to attend with them will be assigned a buddy upon arrival at camp.
