Camp Tiger is a free summer camp for children and teens ages 5 to 18 years old living with physical and cognitive challenges such as cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, and more. Since 2000, this camp has been organized by medical students from LSU Health Shreveport. Throughout the week, campers participate in a variety of activities in the Shreveport community such as trips to Hot Wheels of Wonder Skating Rink, Sci-Port Discovery Center, Gators and Friends, Holiday Lanes Bowling, and much more. Most importantly, the campers benefit from the social interaction with one another and the individual attention from camp counselors. We are looking forward to Camp Tiger 2024!!

“Camp Tiger was such a blast! It warms my heart to watch our campers laugh and play together in an encouraging and judge-free environment. We had so much fun at each stop on our adventure. We’re blessed to have many gracious donors that make these Camp Tiger adventures possible. This is such a special week for both the campers and counselors alike!” Hayley Vervaeke, MS2

"The most rewarding part of serving [...] this summer was seeing the smiles of the children from the moment they arrived at camp to the moment they left. My fondest memory of camp was when [my camper] played pool. I'm so glad and thankful my classmates and I have the opportunity to put on Camp Tiger!" Kristie Tso

“Camp Tiger has been my most meaningful experience this year because of the heartfelt bond formed between me and my camper. He displayed great affection with endless hugs and gave me the opportunity to learn basic sign language. Ultimately, watching his worries go away for a moment while he enjoyed the activities is what made this event so significant. With all the compassionate medical students that volunteered at Camp Tiger, there is no doubt in my mind that the campers left knowing they are appreciated, accepted, and loved.” - Aizaz Ahmad, MS1
