Courageous Campers

Courageous Campers

Courageous Campers, a therapeutic summer camp, is presented in partnership by OCD Louisiana and Rise Center for OCD and Anxiety. It is made possible by the generous grant-funding of JACK Mental Health Advocacy (MHA), sponsorship by Dufrene Surveying and Engineering, and donors like you.

Every donation, large and small, helps our kids bravely face anxiety and OCD. Donate today!


Our one-week camp is designed exclusively for children and adolescents navigating anxiety and OCD challenges. Our unique program seamlessly blends summer camp fun with evidence-based interventions, allowing campers to conquer fears and break free from the cycle of anxiety. Watch as your child not only embraces new friendships with peers who understand and share similar experiences but also gains valuable tools to conquer anxiety and OCD. 

This summer, empower their journey by becoming Courageous Campers.
