LOUISIANA ROYAL RANGER’S ADVENTURE ACADEMY

A word from our Camp Director Seth Landry

The premier summer camp for boys and young men in the gulf area.  The Adventure Academy is a 5 day summer camp held at Twin Lakes Campground in Woodworth LA. We have two beautiful lakes, a swimming pool, archery and rifle ranges, high and low ropes adventure courses, a rappelling tower, rock wall and much more on over 100 acres of woodlands located on the border of the Kisatchie National Forest. The Adventure Academy consists of 11 individualized camps that run at one time for boys depending on their age. Plus we have a camp designed to train adult leaders who are new to Rangers or looking to improve themselves as a local leader. In each camp boys will earn Royal Ranger merits, participate in team building and adventure activities and attend our nightly worship services where they will have an opportunity to meet with and grow closer to Christ.
