Summer KIDSTOP Information & Summer Calendars

At KIDSTOP, your child is sure to enjoy a range of activities taking place in 45-minute rotations, including:

  • Gym, outdoor activities & water games
  •  Arts & crafts, scrapbooking, cooking & clubs
  • High-yield learning activities and games
  • Sports leagues & fashion clubs
  • Virtual field trips & more!

Keep your kids on track with Summer Brain Gain – a learning loss prevention program developed specifically for Boys & Girls Clubs! Summer Brain Gain is filled with fun activities for elementary school students. Supported by Disney, each module takes a project-based learning approach: youth engage in a process of learning through discovery, creative expression, group work and a final project or production. As a result, kids develop higher-order thinking skills through the Summer Brain Gain modules while staying on track for the coming school year.

Boys & Girls Club also provides CareerSTART at KIDSTOP to expose youth to careers in all six areas of the career wheel, including:

  • human services
  • health sciences & technology
  • engineering & manufacturing
  • arts, communications & info systems
  • agriculture, food & natural resources
  • business, management & admin

Summer KIDSTOP will be open from 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Summer KIDSTOP starts June 7th – Sartell-St. Stephen School District

Summer school programs will be taking place at Oak Ridge this year; therefore, Oak Ridge KIDSTOP will combine with Pine Meadow KIDSTOP for the summer. KIDSTOP will be available for summer programming for all youth entering kindergarten – 3rd grade this fall.

If you have already registered your child for Oak Ridge KIDSTOP, please plan to send your child to Pine Meadow KIDSTOP for the summer. We have made the adjustment to your registration.

COVID-19 Safety Procedures

COVID-19 Safety Procedures

  • We will be practicing social distancing with kids and will maintain smaller program group sizes to ensure that we are meeting CDC guidelines for health and safety. All programming will be in groups of 15 or fewer and will travel from activity to activity as a group throughout the day.
  • Space at each site may be limited, due to smaller program size requirements.
  • All staff and kids will be required to wear masks. Masks should be washed daily after use. Cloth masks should be machine washable, and we recommend using the sanitize setting on your machine, if available. Exceptions will be made only for those who have a diagnosed medical issue that prevents them from wearing a mask. Masks do not need to be worn during outside programming as long as social distancing is taking place. For more information on CDC recommendations, click here:
  • https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/schools.html
  • https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/children/protect-children.html
  • Temperature and health screenings will be required at check in and after lunch each day of All-day KIDSTOP. Please click here for details and a full list of the precautions Boys & Girls Club is taking to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 Warning & Waiver

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Club cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the Club could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

All parents will be required to sign a warning and waiver when they arrive with their child(ren) the first day of attendance.
