Steve & Kate's Brooklyn - Williamsburg
· DATES: Jun 19 - Aug 18, 2017
· ADDRESS: Williamsburg Northside School, 299 North 7th Street, Brooklyn
When you give kids choice, amazing things happen.
When I was 5 years old, my mom gave me the choice of how to spell my nickname for Eleanor. “Ellie”, “Eli”, “Elly”? The world was my oyster! After careful consideration, I chose my very own…”Elea” (pronounced, I would add, like the others, but just “with the end chopped off.”) This would lead to mispronunciations, misunderstandings, and lots of comedy, but above all it gave me ownership and pride in something very personal - my name.
Choice is big to me. Questioning, thinking, and experimenting are big to me. My greatest joy at Steve & Kate’s is seeing the profound things that happen when we give kids these choices. There is magic in the mistakes, and great learning when we let things unfold with youthful curiosity. - Elea
Let's start a conversation »
My 8 yo just finished his 4th day and asked for a bunch more days. At first, I couldn't wrap my head around the schedule-flexible nature of the camp - come when you want, participate in the activities you like - but somehow it does work. It's a great camp if you don't need full weeks of camp, or if you are a freelance working parent and never know when you might need childcare. That said, I do have friends who are doing full weeks. With all the activity rooms, every day can be different. - Lisa T. (Brooklyn parent)
We absolutely love Steve & Kates camp and we are thrilled with having had the opportunity of knowing of this awesome camp! Thanks to all of the wonderful counselors, [my child] does not stop talking about how great everyone was to her! - Haydee T. (Brooklyn parent)
I was so excited that [my child] loved going to your camp. I think you have a great formula for letting kids choose what they want to do all day. They don't get to do that in any other time of their day. Steve & Kate's camp reminded me how important it is for my kids to learn how to be independent. I hope you come back to Williamsburg next year, because we will be there all summer!!! - Julie S. (Brooklyn parent)
