Steve & Kate's Corte Madera
· DATES: Jun 11 - Aug 10, 2018
· ADDRESS: The Cove School, 330 Golden Hind Passage, Corte Madera

Give kids choice, amazing things happen.

I love being apart of not just a camp but a community where parents trust me to be apart of their ‘village’. I enjoy being able to create an environment for kids to safely test creative boundaries, make mistakes while gaining trust in their own decisions, and learn to further respect others as well as themselves. It’s rewarding to see returning campers show up on the first day of camp so comfortable it’s as if camp never ended the year before. Or to see a first time 5-year-old by the end of summer who gains so much confidence and independence from making their own choices that it surprises their parent to see them run off in excitement at check-in without a hug goodbye.

Activities for every interest.

Whatever your child’s passion, they can push their limits at our camp.
Stop-motion animation, fashion, coding, breadmaking, sports, music, dance, and so much more.

Sports – Each day, we’ll offer a featured sport for campers of all ages and abilities, and we’ll also schedule other active games throughout the day to spice things up.


Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Specials. The Director at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of their four Specials, so feel free to contact your Director to find out what will be scheduled each day.

Animatronic Ride-Ons – Take a spin around camp on one of our custom motorized Chicken, Moose, or Crocodile go karts! Helmets are required and will be provided if needed, but we highly encourage you to bring your own.

Climbing Wall – Race to the top of the mobile Climbing Wall and soak up the view. Camp looks beautiful from 20' in the air. Closed toe shoes recommended for participation.

Extreme Air – Campers flip and fly through the air while harnessed into this-state-of-the art bungee system.

Gaga – Jump into a fast paced, high energy dodgeball-syle game played in an octagonal pit.

Our kids look forward to Steve & Kate's camp all year. The incredible range of activities, the positive and creative staff, and the laid-back vibe make summer feel like summer. And I'm grateful for the break from making lunches (I can't believe how much our kids love the food). We've been going for four years and we'll keep going until they make us stop! - Alexa K. (Marin parent)
What a great program! I cannot say good enough things about Steve & Kate's and I think you play a big role in it! Kids love Steve & Kate's this was our 3rd summer (Edgar's second) and we are planning on returning again next summer. In fact, Dylan is already planning on becoming a "mentee" and is planning on working at Steve & Kate's when she grows up. Thank you for everything you do! - Kathy M. (Marin parent)
Steve & Kate's is the best! Our daughter loves all the different activities and the staff are super caring and supportive. Bear is amazing and has made our experience at Steve & Kate's really special. There is a real sense of community and our daughter has made friends at camp that she continues to keep in contact with. Honestly, when we signed our daughter up two summers ago I never would have anticipated what a positive experience it would be, or how much she would anticipate returning each summer to do it all over again. - Sara L. (Marin parent)
