Time for a Little Something Extra

LAGNIAPPE is something you only get in Louisiana. It means, “a little something extra.” And that’s exactly what you’ll get with our newest mini-camp experience set for February 13 – March 27, 2021, from 9am – 12pm. We are giving you and your family more than LITTLE extra. We have nine unique, three-hour workshops designed for children ages 5 and up. Your little camper can choose from making special Valentine’s Day gifts to creating cardboard animals with their very own habitats to experimenting with the magic of science, and so much more.

Each session is limited to 15 campers, so register today so your little one doesn’t miss out. Drop off is from 8:50 am – 9:00 a.m. and pick up is from 11:50 am – 12:00 p.m. Face masks are required.  Each mini-camper should dress for play, bring their own water bottle, and snack.

You can select just one camp, or join us for all sessions! (Separate registration is required for each date)

We also offer special scholarships for qualifying campers. These scholarships are made possible through the support of Capital Area United Way. Simply submit an application by clicking the button below prior to registering to see if your camper is eligible.

Knock Knock’s Lagniappe Mini-Camps are the perfect way to play, create, and explore this Spring.
