Camp St. Vincent is a free, all-inclusive, eight-week summer camp for homeless youth. Camp St. Vincent takes place in Patterson Park in Southeast Baltimore and operates Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Camp St. Vincent provides a fun, supervised environment with academic, therapeutic and enrichment programming for children, ages 5-14 from homeless families from Baltimore City and Baltimore County.
Snacks and bathing suit donations are needed for our campers! Order through our Amazon Wish Lists and donations will be sent right to the program.
All children are eligible for free daily bus transportation from our designated pick-up sites. All camp activities, supplies, daily breakfast and lunch, backpacks, swims suits, beach towels and t-shirts are provided free to campers.
Camp St. Vincent’s program is specifically designed to address the impact of homelessness on academic, social, and emotional development with a structured reading and math curriculum, social skills groups, and cultural enrichment activities.
Within the safety and support of a therapeutic setting, children develop positive trusting relationships with adults that assist them in maintaining grade-appropriate academic performance, developing social competence and problem solving skills, strengthening autonomy, and gaining a sense of purpose.
