Steve & Kate's Atherton
· DATES: Jun 19 - Aug 18, 2017
· ADDRESS: Encinal Elementary School, 195 Encinal Avenue, Atherton

Imagine a summer of extraordinary possibilities.

Imagine a place where your children can decide minute by minute what they want to explore; where they can make their own goals and choose how to complete them; where they can simply spend the whole day with old friends or hang out with new ones. As a child, the times I remember best were the ones spent outside the box of the everyday ordinary... doing the extraordinary. My extraordinary could be as simple as meeting someone new, or as complicated as selling grandma on my latest business venture. This summer, we'll challenge the ordinary, to give your children a space to explore their own extraordinary. The possibilities are endless! And the memories made will be hard to beat! - Hannah

Testimonials

I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciated your staff, never a frown, never grumpy, everyone knew my kid, never was anyone off their game. Your entire model is impressive…. Thank you for giving my kid the opportunity to have an epic summer! - Shannon C. (Atherton parent)
It's great to pick up your kid from camp with a smile and excited about the day they spent doing various activities. Staff was wonderful and not having to think about food was such a relief. - Christian K. (Atherton parent)
I was so happy that my two daughters could be together whenever they wanted. I love that they can just have fun and be kids! - Martha H. (Atherton parent)

Really important information about Atherton

  • Water activities will happen on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (or on especially hot days, as needed). We recommend that families apply sunblock at home and send children with a bathing suit or change of clothes, and a towel.
  • Our last week (Aug 14-18) will be busier than other weeks as families from other nearby locations join us after their camps close. We'll have tons of stuff, staff, and fun, but we do like to give families a heads up.
  • BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW FOR THE VIRTUAL ORIENTATION. This provides information relevant to all of our camp locations, including information and videos about how to check-in/check-out, what to bring (and not bring), and so much more.

Parking

Important Update: Construction is happening on Encinal Avenue from June 19-22. For this coming Mon-Thu you will still have access to the main front Encinal School parking lot, but traffic on Encinal Avenue will be going northbound only (i.e. you can not access Encinal Elementary from Middlefield Road; follow the detour signs and traffic control).On Friday, Encinal Avenue will be completely closed and you will need to enter on Middlefield Road. There will be someone visible outside the correct parking lot gate on Middlefield Road; you may also find parking on Lane Place. We encourage families to leave lots of extra time on Friday, and consider alternative travel arrangements (i.e. bike, walk, etc) if possible. On Friday only, checkin for camp will be at the Middlefield Road entrance.

Specials

Each day at camp, we feature at least one of three show stoppers from our lineup for campers to experience. Directors at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of these Specials, so feel free to contact your Director to find out what will be scheduled each day.


Slip and Slide - Cool off in style in our inflatable slip and slide. Weather permitting, this will be offered most afternoons. Please bring a swimsuit and towel if your camper would like to participate.

Smart Karts - Get behind the wheel of one of Silicon Valley's latest and greatest inventions: the first electric smart-kart for kids. Campers must wear helmets while driving go-karts. While the camp will provide helmets, we prefer and encourage you to provide your own if you have one and your child would like to participate.

Zorbs - Climb inside of one of our giant 10' inflatable hamster balls and weave your way through an obstacle course as fast as a hamster.
