About Steve and Kate’s Camp:

Steve & Kate’s is a summer day camp founded on the belief that when you trust kids, they learn to trust themselves, and develop the creative confidence to unleash their true potential.

So for 37 years, they’ve let kids choose their own adventure through a range of activities, including film, fashion, breadmaking, stop-motion animation, coding, music, dance, sports, and the occasional pie-throwing.

Steve & Kate’s Camp offers a safe, judgment-free environment where kids can be themselves, explore their passions, and develop true self-confidence.

Steve and Kate’s offers a uniquely flexible camp model that parents love. You can purchase day passes or full summer memberships, good for any day at any location. You don’t even need to tell them that you’re coming – just show up and we’ll be ready for you.

And because they know that you’re busy and schedules change, they automatically refund all unused days by mid-September. Boom.

Steve and Kate’s Camp offers industry-leading hours with no extra charge. They’re open from 7:30am until 6pm, and you can drop off or pick up at any time in that window.

Steve and Kate’s Camp is a self-directed summer camp, meaning that kids get to choose the activities they love. To make that work, they offer the widest range of activities of any summer day camp, including five immersive creative studios (film, fashion design, coding, breadmaking and music) and a ton of other fun activities, like sports, dance, building, card games, game shows, occasional pie-throwing and a range of rotating “epic” specials like go-karts, slide-and-slide water castles, Zorbs and much more.

Open 7:30am-6pm every day. Ages 4-12. Lunch is included, and delicious.


Good luck to all!
