Summers at Urban Impact

Summers at Urban Impact are our busiest time! With our neighborhood kids out of school we seek to provide meaningful ways to keep them safe, engaged, and moving forward in their faith journey. Besides our regularly scheduled youth programming, summer brings many exciting opportunities to our community.

Summer Day Camp

Our biggest ministry is our annual summer camp. From June 5th – July 21st, we provide a daily Christ-centered camp for children ages 6-11. Four hours a day, 5 days a week of learning, laughing, praying, and playing. With the help of interns and volunteer teams, we offer approximately 100 children a day an opportunity to be poured into in loving and meaningful ways.

Camp includes a daily Bible lesson, crafts, games, and snacks. Each week we break out the inflatable water slide for a chance to get a break from this thick Louisiana heat. The summer is pure energy and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Summer Trips

Each Summer we take our kids on a handful of trips, including our annual trip to Kids Across America (KAA) in Missouri. Every summer that we attend Kids Across America we look forward to what God is going to do in the lives of our youth.

For many of these young people, these trips are their first trip out of New Orleans (with the exception of evacuations). From the confines of the inner city to an environment of trees, lakes, and sports activities which they have never experienced, these trips give us the opportunity to pursue one of our major goals in youth ministry— to bring students to faith and fellowship in Jesus Christ.

If you’re interested in attending one of our trips, check out the calendar below for more information!

Summer Interning
