How much does summer camp cost and when is it due?
Summer camp tuition is $120-$140 per week, per camper, depending on date of application. Tuition must be paid before the start of camp. All fees/tuition are non-refundable.
How much does lunch cost?
Lunch costs $25 per week and is NOT required. Campers are allowed to bring their own lunch. $25 a week includes the choice of a different hot meal daily, (chicken nuggets, hamburger, hot dog, or corn dog) a ham & cheese sandwich, or a jelly sandwich, a choice of a drink, and chips. Purchasing lunch on a daily basis is not an option.
What is a concession account?
The concession stand has a variety of snacks and soft drinks ranging from $.25 to $1.50. Campers in age groups Pre-K-1st grade will have their order taken in the morning with their lunch order and may spend up to $1.50 per day. Campers in groups 2nd-8th grade will be allowed to go numerous times during the day. It may be a good idea to give your camper a budget. Campers will not be allowed to go ‘negative’ in the concession stand. Money will have to be deposited for items to be purchased. Cash is also accepted.
Where do I drop off/pick up my camper?
All campers are dropped off in the mornings and picked up in the afternoons by the St. Theresa School gym on Burnside Ave.
What should my camper bring to camp daily?
The most important thing to bring daily is a positive attitude; everyone should be ready to have an awesome time! Also include tennis shoes (no sandals please!), 2018 camp shirt, and a bag with towel, sunscreen, and swim wear. LABEL EVERYTHING! Campers may NOT bring cell phones/electronics/toys to camp. Cell phones/electronics/toys will be taken away for one week.
How often will campers go on field trips and how much do they cost?
Campers will have a minimum of one field trip per week, most often two. The price of field trips are included in your camp tuition with the exception of the 7th/8th grade special trip. If a group canoes to Cade’s, campers will need money to purchase something there. Field trips are subject to change due to attendance, weather, transportation issues, and facility policies.

St. Theresa Summer Warrior Camp is located on the campus of St. Theresa Middle School at 212 East New River Street in Gonzales, LA 70737. The camp office is located in Room 20 (room to the left side of library).
