Each summer nearly 60 Summer Camp activities are conducted on the Natchitoches Campus of Northwestern State.  Some camps are also held throughout the year. Summer Camps are coordinated by the  Office of the Director Facility Use and Friedman Student Union (ODFU).  Each Camp shall designate its own Director/Coordinator and is normally supported by an NSU department/unit. Additionally, some camps are identified as non-university camps as space allows. The university camp load is heavy and any additional camp request call for review and approval by facility use and the confirmation of available space.

University Sponsored Camps:

Most camps held at the university are sponsored by the university and it's many organizations. The camps are broken down into two categories; Day Camps and Overnight camps. Procedures to request and approved Day camps are simplified whereas overnight camps call for housing and food service support. Click on the web link for procedures for summer camps.
