In Louisiana, we have four volunteering “seasons” throughout the year, each of which takes on a unique character all its own. (We’ll post an update on the Detroit volunteer seasons as they develop!)
Our busiest season by far, spring is dominated by alternative Spring Break college and high school volunteers, though all ages and backgrounds are represented. It’s a beautiful time to be in Louisiana, as the weather is perfect and everything is fresh and green. It’s also Festival Season, which means there’s plenty of musical, food and cultural attractions to check out when done working for the day. Food of the season: Boiled crawfish.
In Louisiana, it’s not the heat that can makes summertime so hot (our average highs peak around 90 in the summer) – it’s the humidity. On the bright side (no pun intended), in New Orleans once the sun goes down the Gulf breeze rapidly cools the air into the lower- to mid-70s each night. Summertime is our second-busiest season, led by high school and youth groups. Though youthfulness helps with handling the heat, it doesn’t hurt that many project sites are air-conditioned. Food of the season: Snowballs.
Fall is our season of relaxation and tranquility, when your group stands the best chance of having Camp all to yourselves. Beginning in mid-September, we enjoy some of the best weather in the world, which some have described as “inside-outside” weather (both are the same perfect temperature). It’s also great if you’re a football fan. Food of the season: Softshell crab, then oysters.
With a steady supply of spring-like weather, our winter season brings a wide range of volunteers from all over, especially from way, way up North. Families, church groups and student groups come together and enjoy a family atmosphere through the holidays towards the annual high point of the Louisiana calendar: Mardi Gras. Food of the season: King Cake.
