General DigiCamp Information

Location

All DigiCamps are held on Delgado's City Park Campus, located at 615 City Park Avenue in New Orleans, LA 70119. The camps will take place entirely in Building 8, which faces Orleans/Marconi Avenue and is located approximately mid-way between Navarre Avenue and City Park Avenue. (View map and driving directions).

Pick-Up, Drop-Off, and Parking

  • Campers should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before each camp session starts, and depart no later than 15 minutes after each session ends. Delgado cannot be responsible for students who are early arrivals or late departures.
  • We will NOT require parents/guardians to sign campers out of the classroom at pick-up time, unless parents/guardians specifically request this for their camper on their registration form. If sign-out is requested, a government-issued picture ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport) will be required and only individuals listed on the camper’s registration form will be allowed to pick up that camper. If you need to add someone to the list of authorized individuals, please let us know. We will need to receive notification in writing.
  • We will provide temporary, 15-minute parking passes to all parents, guardians, and other individuals who are dropping off and/or picking  up their campers. These will be available everyday in the DigiCamp classroom, on a desk at the front of the room. Please display these on the driver's side dashboard. 
  • If a camper is driving himself or herself to Delgado and will need to park on campus, please contact us for instructions to obtain a parking permit.

Safety

  • Building 8 is a small, one-story building. In addition to computer labs and classrooms, the building also has two departmental offices. There will be staff members in the building during the camps as well as the DigiCamp instructor(s).
  • We suggest that you sign up for Delgado Alerts, which will notify you of any emergency situations involving the college, including campus closures.

Instructors

  • All DigiCamp instructors are carefully selected for their knowledge of the topics they will be teaching.
  • All DigiCamp instructors must also clear a criminal background check.

Lunch/Snacks

  • Campers should bring a bagged lunch and are also encouraged to bring snacks. 
  • Due to potential food allergies of other campers, as well as other concerns, all food and beverages must be kept sealed and packed away until designated break times.
  • We will have a supervised break room for our campers. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we do not have a refrigerator or microwave available for our campers.
  • DigiCamps include a pizza party on the last day of camp, so a bagged lunch will not be necessary. This is included in the price of the camps.

What to Wear & Bring

  • All campers should bring a USB drive on which to save their work. Also known as flash drives, thumb drives, and jump drives, these are available at most drugstores, office supply stores, Wal-Mart, etc.
  • We recommend that your camper dresses in layers due to the unpredictability of the building's temperature. A short-sleeved shirt is a good idea, coupled with a jacket or sweater just in case.
  • Please do not send any items with your camper that are irreplaceable.
