BATON ROUGE – Those looking for a fun, recreation-based summer day camp for their children still have the opportunity to sign up for LSU University Recreation, or LSU UREC’s Tiger’s Den.

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 sport activities, structured games, arts and crafts, fitness classes, swimming, sport skill instruction and interactive educational activities, all incorporating Tiger’s Den values.

The camp utilizes the beauty and amenities of the LSU campus to provide campers with a wide variety of activities such as touring Tiger Stadium, fishing and canoeing the LSU Lakes and partaking in arts and crafts at the LSU Leisure Arts Studio.

“We are looking forward to another safe and fun-filled summer of Tiger’s Den because of the unique opportunity camp provides for children to explore all that LSU has to offer, while also developing lasting friendships and enjoying a diverse range of activities,” said Zach Wood, coordinator of Sport & Camp Programs at LSU UREC.

Through exploring the campus and participating in activities at the Student Recreation Center, Tiger’s Den teaches its core values of fun, enthusiasm, compassion, discovery, humility, leadership and community to every camper. These principles serve as the foundation for Tiger’s Den activities, which are designed to impact and encourage social growth in campers, in areas such as teamwork, community living, healthy sportsmanship and positive competition.

Tiger’s Den is open to children of LSU faculty or staff, as well as families in the Baton Rouge community. Catered lunches, healthy snacks and camper t-shirts are included in each camper’s registration. 2013 Tiger’s Den features five camp sessions throughout the summer, all in which children may be enrolled for full or partial sessions.
