As we move into the spring months, St. Vincent’s One Nineteen is in full planning mode for our popular kids and teens summer camps. What really differentiates our summer programs is that while they’re fun for kids, they’re also framed within the health and wellness environment of St. Vincent’s One Nineteen. Kids enjoy a wide range of activities but also learn important health information and habits that will benefit them throughout their lifetime.

Here’s a listing of our full summer offerings:

  • Camp One Nineteen – Camp One Nineteen continues to be one of our most popular offerings. Available for children ages 5-12 years, this camp is offered June-August from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. Campers enjoy various activities, including sports, indoor/outdoor activities, weekly themes and swimming – all in a safe and fun environment.
  • Kids and Teen Cooking Camps – We offer cooking classes and demonstrations throughout the year, but local kids and teens have a special opportunity to learn in-depth cooking skills during our summer cooking camps.

o   Teens can enjoy “Culinary Boot Camp: A Cooking Academy for Teens,” which is designed to teach those ages 13 to 18 basic knife skills and cooking techniques. Teens learn sautéing, roasting, grilling and braising from a trained chef, while also making new friends and learning about basic nutrition and healthy eating habits. This camp is available June 6 to 10 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

o   Our “Thyme to Cook for Kids” classes for younger children will fill up quickly, so be sure to book your spot early. Kids can choose from the following week-long camps: June 13-17 session (6-9 year olds), June 20-24 session (10-12 year olds), July 18-22 session (6-9 year olds) and July 25-29 session (10-12 year olds). The theme for the June sessions will be “Cookin’ in the USA” – featuring different regions of the country, including the South, while the July sessions’ theme will be “Cookin’ with the Stars” and focus on famous chefs’ recipes.

  • Sports Performance Programs – While our Sports Performance programs are offered year-round, we always see an influx of young athletes in the summer months who want to focus on exceling in next year’s sports. Trained by a high skilled team of coaches with more than 25 years of experience at colleges and universities across the country, these programs fill up quickly. We offer the following: Speed School (ages 7-11 years) – lays the foundation and is only offered every Tuesday and Thursday in June or July; Foundation Training (ages 8-11 years) – provides the next level of physical preparedness for the young athlete and is offered year-round; Specific Development (ages 12-18 years) – equips the motivated athlete with strength and speed to gain an edge in his or her sport and is available year-round.
