2015 Royal Kids Summer Care Program

St. Vincent de Paul’s Royal Kids Summer Care Program is designed to provide a safe, fun, stimulating environment while also promoting the values of our Catholic faith and the mission of our parish. We offer social, physical, spiritual, and intellectual opportunities for your child through field trips and in- house activities.  Royal Kids Summer Program offers regular full time, part time, and drop in care for kids entering grades 1-6 in the Fall of 2015.

Our program begins the summer with a week of Vacation Bible School (at no additional charge) in the morning and fun activities in the afternoon.  Please DO NOT enroll online for VBS as all enrollments will be handled through the Summer Care Program.  Your child will be escorted to and from VBS.  Summer staff will not be available during VBS hours. 

The Royal Kids Summer Care Program also includes a weekly visit to The Elm Creek Swimming Pond along with an additional weekly field trip to various sites around the Twin Cities area.  Our in house activities include Summer Science, Bike Rodeos, Technology Hour, Sprinkler Fun, Arts and Crafts, Sports, Stop-Drop-and- Read, a weekly visit from the Ice Cream Truck, and much more.  


Our hours are 7:00 AM to 5:45 PM.  Royal Kids Summer Care is based out of the St. Vincent de Paul Education Center cafeteria.  Lunch is provided on Mondays and Fridays.  Participants must bring a bag lunch Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  A morning and afternoon snack are provided daily, along with a beverage.  Water is available at all times.
