At Steve & Kate’s, we believe that when you trust kids, they develop the confidence to trust themselves. So we created a summer camp that puts kids in charge. Summer gives us the freedom to reinvent learning in a way that allows kids to make their own choices and, of course, a few mistakes along the way.
Driven by this belief, we’ve built our summer camp to put kids in the driver’s seat of their own creativity. Whether your child obsessed with film, a budding chef, or a future fashion designer, they can dive in at camp without judgments or expectations.

We are experts in fun! P.O.S.E. (Playing On Stage Education) brings theatre and visual arts to schools all year long. In addition to our after school programming, we now offer Summer Fun Workshops!!
Students ages 6-14 spend the day in a playhouse of creativity. Our goal is to bring kids a balanced education in the arts by offering classes that cover a wide range of interests. We start the day with a warm-up that teaches students how to access their creative minds and bodies and how to maintain a level of self-care. This includes stretching, vocal warm-ups, and songs to help wake-up the body and mind. Then students cycle between classes in acting, movement, voice, improvisation, and art.
Each workshop has a unique curriculum and dress-up days centered on the theme. Choose between workshops that focus on Crazy Characters, Silly Circus, Puppet Pals, Broadway Babies, or Voiceover & Commercials.
