Camp Villere is a Louisiana Army/Air National Guard camp located near Slidell, Louisiana.
Members of the Counter Drug Task Force conducted a two-day Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) training at Camp Villere in February 2001. The training included driver's training, operator maintenance and mission capability. Currently, LAV mission requests are minimal however the LAV is piece of equipment that could save a life if called upon to do so.
The Louisiana Army National Guard (LANG) and the Northwestern State University Cultural Resource Office have initiated a multi-year agreement to develop and implement an Integrated Cultural Resource Management Program for the cultural resources located within the LANG properties. The development of this plan requires surveys and evaluations of all LANG properties to determine if locations, sites, buildings, and objects found on those properties are of historic or cultural significance. Among the properties being evaluated are all armories throughout the state, Camp Villere, Camp Beauregard, Jackson Barracks, and the Region IV Non-Commissioned Officer Training Academy in Ball.
BSA Troop 326 is located at the Moose Family Center on Camp Villere Road in Slidell Louisiana.
In 1996 the Louisiana Army National Guard signed a Management Agreement with the Nature Conservancy covering 1,500 acres at Camp Villere, part of the East Gulf Coastal Plain ecoregion.
