ACADIANA'S CAMP BLUEBIRD

November 7-9, 2018
 
Camp Bluebird, started by Our Lady of Lourdes in 1990, offers a unique therapeutic experience for adult cancer survivors. Our focus is to bring cancer patients and survivors to a place of acceptance of their diagnosis in a spiritual and healing environment amidst the beauty of nature. This three day, two night camp is held at The Wesley Center in Woodworth, LA. Recreational activities include table and lawn games, hiking, crafts, fishing, socials and quiet time.

  • A dynamic, healing journey toward emotional and spiritual well-being for people who experience cancer 
  • An opportunity to gain a better understanding of non-medical needs and to learn coping strategies from others that have made lifestyle adjustments through living with cancer.
  • Learning, laughter and celebrating life
  • Recreation
  • Nutritional information
  • Creative outlets through music, games, arts & crafts

Who Can Attend?
It is open to all adults ages 18 or older who have been diagnosed with cancer. Campers do not have to be a patient of Our Lady of Lourdes to attend.

Who Staffs Camp Bluebird?
Camp staff includes nurses, health care professionals, pastoral care associates, cancer survivors and many volunteers who gladly give their time to carry out the mission to heal the human spirit as well as the body.
