Steve & Kate’s Camp

Steve & Kate’s Camp

Additional Categories: Other

When you trust kids, they learn to trust themselves. At Steve & Kate’s Camp, we give kids the freedom to choose what they want to do, whether that’s music, bread-making, fashion, filmmaking, coding, outdoor sports, lounging, or enjoying goofy summertime shenanigans in their own individual ways. Buy any number of days (including an all-summer Membership) and show-up whenever—no need to tell us ahead of time that you’re coming. If you buy more than you need, we’ll automatically refund back unused Day Passes at the end of the summer. And with lunch and snacks provided as a part of the camp fees, you might wish we were around all year. Grades Pre-K through 7th, with mentorship program. 35+ locations. Founded in 1980.
