Our Mission

To offer outdoor adventure opportunities to disadvantaged New Orleans youth to instill confidence, leadership, and compassion.


Outdoor adventure club

LOOP NOLA is a local, independent, non-profit organization that, through various programs, brings the benefits of outdoor recreation and a connection to nature to kids without access. KatyCares, a 501c3, funds a LOOP NOLA program - called the Outdoor Adventure Club - that fosters leadership skills and offers advanced outdoor experiences.

We hope through this program, New Orleans youth will benefit from the outdoors as much as Katy did.


about the club

  • At the end of the summer, Club members experience a week-long sleep away camp in western North Carolina.

  • Through this program, members gain a new perspective on their environment and build confidence in themselves and other Club members.
