Steve & Kate’s Camp

Type: Arts & Crafts, Cooking, Day Camp, Film, Music, Sports, Tech

Description:

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.
