Steve & Kate's Evanston
· DATES: Jun 13 - Aug 18, 2017
· ADDRESS: Chiaravalle Montessori School, 425 Dempster Street, Evanston
What if kids grew up knowing they were limitless?
What if they found the confidence to make choices that might differ from those around them? What if they had the chance to be led by their curiosity to uncharted territory? Kids have the potential to amaze us when we give them the space to explore. Not only that, but they might even grow up to be adults creating change which will better our world. Kids are built to discover, and I’m thrilled to be here cheering on the pioneers while learning alongside them. - Colleen
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 and Kate's camp gave both our kids confidence and independence. - Sarah M. (Evanston parent)

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.
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.
Gaga - Jump into a fast paced, high energy version of dodgeball played in an octagonal pit.
Skates - Cruise around camp on a pair of modern-day roller skates with a unique wheel configuration designed for maneuverability. Campers must wear helmets and pads while skating. While the camp will provide safety equipment, we prefer and encourage you to provide your own if you have them and your child would like to participate.
