About Rec Check

Saint Paul Parks and Recreation offers after-school and other out-of-school time care for youth at multiple recreation centers across the City. Rec Check programs are open for youth who live or attend school in Saint Paul. Children participate in a variety of structured, supervised activities that are recreation focused. These may include arts and crafts, community building games, quiet time, homework help (during the school year) and more. To promote health and fitness, staff will engage the youth daily in physical activity. A daily snack is also provided.
