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.
Our summer camp empowers your kids to make their own choices, setting them up for a fulfilling and creative future. Activities include baking, sewing, crafting, media lab, sports, karaoke, and so much more! Ages 4-12. Open 7:30am-6pm. Lunch and snacks included.

Have you ever thought, “Why Camp Kids Klub?” From our favorite songs, to hilarious games, special surprises and yummy treats, our camp has tons of unique traditions that campers look forward to each summer. We guarantee that we’ll keep the energy high and the fun flowing throughout the camp day!
We believe that camp is an essential experience in a child’s life. Camp is about the feeling that anything is possible. Children should spend their time at camp on adventures and having dynamic experiences- learning, playing, making lifelong friends, and being surrounded by people that inspire them.
As our camp song says, “In 1995, Kids Klub arrived!”, and we have been perfecting summer camp ever since! Here are some of our favorite things!
Above all, Camp Kids Klub is all about friendships, new and old! Whether you have been coming to camp for five years or it is your first day, you can count on making friends right away. To that end, we do team building first thing every Monday morning so that campers get to know one another and their counselors. Moreover, throughout the week we continue to play wacky games during group time to solidify these bonds. We believe that camp friendships are some of the strongest friendships you can have. We love seeing those friendships grow year after year!
Each week at Camp Kids Klub is organized around an exciting Theme. Hence, during “International Week” we learn about different countries and cultures through cooking, dance, art, and sports, and every child gets their very own passport! For “Island Adventure Week” we’ll act like pirates and have a Luau party! Another favorite at Camp Kids Klub is “Olympic Week”, our annual all-camp competition between the Yellow, Blue, and Green Team, who will win this year!? No matter the theme, we plan events that everyone will enjoy!
Finally, this is your opportunity to be a cowboy, alien, wizard, or superhero! We will have a costume contest with prizes for everyone who dresses up. Staff look forward to dress-up days as much as the campers! Don’t be surprised if your counselor suddenly turns into a purple-haired Rock Star!
At Camp Wildcraft we grow creative, curious, confident & caring kids who feel at home in nature. We are small by design, a warm place where kids feel connected and part of a community. At our three sites at in Calabasas, Malibu, and Northridge, our adventurous art and nature camp empowers kids to discover the hidden natural world—and their hidden strengths. During weekly sessions, Campers create big art projects–inspired by big themes, paint and draw, explore and hike, sculpt in wood and clay, sew a pouch to carry handmade nature journals, build forts, go on scavenger hunts, and much more! Each week campers choose from a changing menu of creative and fun activities including theatre, fiber arts, cooking and more. Each summer day is an opportunity to explore with all our senses, and find joy and wonder in the wild places around us. We invite you to join us!
