· ADDRESS: Van Ness Elementary School, 1100 5th Street SE, Washington

Why do I love Steve & Kate's?

I joined the Steve & Kate's Camp family in DC because I am a native Washingtonian that believes in the power of community, diversity, and creativity. I am so proud to go to work every day and meet young people from different backgrounds that come together to build together, learn about each other and themselves, and dream big. - Allison

The Site director and the staff were outstanding. All the staff were properly trained and honestly engaged with the kids everyday. My daughter has attended other camps and she noted that the staff here were great and involved, they also remembered her name each day. I appreciated that my kid was not just a number but a real person. - Lesley S. (DC parent)

Van Ness Spring Open House Tour
This year we'll be at a new location for camp and we'd love to show it off! Stop by for dinner, a chat with Allison, and a campus tour. Food and questions will start at 5:30pm. The formal presentation will begin at 6pm and the tour will follow shortly after.
When: Thu April 27th 2017 5:30 PM - 06:30 PM
Where: Van Ness Elementary 1100 5th St SE Washington DC 20003


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.

Giant Games - Our king-sized outdoor Giant Chess, Giant Checkers and Giant Connect 4 sets bring these classic games to life.

Ready for summer?
