About Camp St. Vincent

Summer day camp serving up to 160 children experiencing homelessness from Baltimore City and County.

Camp St. Vincent is the only free summer camp dedicated to serving children experiencing homelessness in the Baltimore region. Camp St. Vincent provides children experiencing homelessness with an unforgettable and transformational camp experience and addresses the negative impact of homelessness on children’s unique academic, social and emotional needs.

Camp St. Vincent’s unique curriculum is designed to mitigate summer learning loss. Last year 98% of campers maintained or advanced their reading level and 81% maintained or advanced their math skill level over the eight weeks. Camp St. Vincent also meets the unique social-emotional needs of campers who gain acceptance from their peers and trained counselors that can assist in providing a sense of normalcy.
