About Camp St. Vincent

Summer day camp serving 250 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 91% of campers maintained or advanced their reading level and 93% 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.

Through the loyal support of donors, St. Vincent de Paul provides a diverse and rich experience for children experiencing homelessness. Throughout the years, Camp St. Vincent has changed the lives of thousands of vulnerable children.

Summer day camp serving 250 children experiencing homelessness from Baltimore City and County.

Considering the recent pandemic, we plan to adapt the camp so that we can still provide its valuable services to children. We are planning to hold camp at our Patterson Park location this year. We plan to increase the number of busses that we use, in order to follow both social distancing, and safety guidelines while transporting campers from their shelters and programs to our Camp, due to the increased health risks of transporting the children by bus and assembling in larger groups. But we are still holding camp!

Each day will include reading, math, and STEM enrichment activities, along with a healthy dose of sports, dance, art, and water play activities. Most importantly, we will add special social/emotional modules to help children cope with the increased trauma caused due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Camp will be offered at our Patterson Park location servicing children in shelters and homeless programs across Baltimore City and County. Camp St. Vincent will tentatively operate for 8 weeks for campers, from 8:30am-3:30pm June 21 through August 13, for children ages 5-14.
