    BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS OF CENTRAL MINNESOTA
    In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

    KIDSTOP is a school-age child care program for K-6 located at 14 schools in the St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids-Rice, Sartell-St. Stephen and ROCORI school districts. Kids love KIDSTOP because they have so many activities to choose from, including Power Hour homework help, computer access, gym activities, outdoor games, arts and crafts or just hanging out with friends. Parents love it because they know their kids are in the hands of youth guidance professionals who really care about them. KIDSTOP provides a way for parents to give their kids a quality before- and after-school experience at an affordable price. KIDSTOP gives kids daily opportunities that parents know are vital for their child's healthy growth.

     

    All of these services stem from the Boys & Girls Club's five core program areas:
    Character & Leadership Development
    Education and Career Development
    Health & Life Skills
    The Arts
    Sports, Fitness & Recreation

    KIDSTOP is offered at 13 area schools immediately after school ends until 6 p.m. (the ROCORI school district has a different schedule - please click on ROCORI KIDSTOP). The program is also offered during some school holidays and during the summer. Scholarships and county child care assistance are available to families having financial difficulty. The Boys & Girls Club is committed to making sure that ALL children are entitled to quality after-school care, because the children of Central Minnesota deserve to continue to have a positive place to stay after school - place that is convenient for parents and fun for kids.

    The KIDSTOP program offers:
    Life-enhancing programs that help young people see their possibilities
    Full-time professional leadership
    Parents only pay for the days their child actually attends
    Nutritious snacks are provided daily
