Meet the Team
Hey, y’all! My name is Abigail, and I am a first-year medical student from Natchitoches, LA. Being a part of Camp Tiger last year was a such a special way to begin my medical school journey, and I will forever cherish the memories from that time. This is truly a week of excitement and joy for our campers and a memorable and meaningful experience for us as medical students, so I am humbled to be a part of it again.
It is an honor and joy to serve as the Director alongside such a dedicated group of students as we plan this year’s camp together. We hope to make Camp Tiger 2022 the best one yet as we give such a deserving group of campers and their families a week of fun. I am sincerely grateful to the parents and guardians of our campers, medical students, LSU Health Shreveport, and those who have supported Camp Tiger—none of this would be possible without you!
My name is Caroline Manning, and I am a first-year medical student from Shreveport! I am so excited to be serving as one of the Camper Co-Directors for this year’s Camp Tiger. My younger brother is autistic, and although he never attended Camp Tiger, this camp holds a special place in my heart because of all the wonderful things it has done for children like him. I got the opportunity to volunteer as a counselor at last year’s Camp Tiger, and that experience made me want to give more back to this community by serving as a Co-Director this year. I am very excited to be working with this amazing team and making Camp Tiger 2022 the best one yet!

During my time as a counselor at Camp Tiger 2021, I was amazed by the involvement of students and how vibrantly that involvement was reciprocated through the joy and gratitude of each camper and their parents alike. With that incredible experience, I knew I wanted to be involved in Camp Tiger 2022. I'm honored to serve such an incredible group of people who come together to create a wonderfully memorable experience for each camper at Camp Tiger 2022!
