Living the dream

My first job out of high school was with Steve & Kate's Camp. I would wake up at 5:30 am and jump out of bed - I couldn't wait to get to work! Nothing matched the wonder and satisfaction I got from guiding a young camper through the basics of a project only to watch them surpass my knowledge by the end of summer. The freedom I learned to give young humans at camp revolutionized the way I came to think of all my relationships: the most powerful path toward human growth is the one that gives us the freedom to learn for ourselves what we have to offer. I'm living my dream and I can't wait to see your kiddo live theirs! - Hannah

Let's start a conversation »


My son tried foods he never would have, played new games each day, discovered he had skills in so many different areas and made so many friends. On the last day of camp for the summer, he asked, "When can you sign me up for next summer?" - Meg S. (Evanston parent)
[My son] actually loved going everyday, and for my 11 year old son with ADHD, that truly was a blessing. He loved all of the studio options and the staff was supportive yet also with the right amount of structure. - Sara Jane A. (Evanston parent)
The memories created were priceless (and downloadable). Steve & Kate's camp gave both our kids confidence and independence. - Sarah M. (Evanston parent)
