Steve & Kate's Los Altos
· DATES: Jun 12 - Aug 11, 2017
· ADDRESS: St. Simon Parish School, 1840 Grant Road, Los Altos
A place for kids to learn who they really are.
I grew up thinking I was supposed to be a lot of things... and today I can honestly say I'm exactly who I'm supposed to be. I am here because I believe kids have a very important voice. I believe in their ability to surprise and amaze, in their ability to problem solve and get to know themselves in the process. For me, some of the most important moments aren't the ones that happen in the studios. Our campers will make a decadent apple tart, our campers will design and sew a three-piece suit, and they will make an animation so funny you might just pee your pants. I live for the tough getting to know yourself moments, encouraging my campers to make the impossible, possible and the inevitable joy of watching someone pursue their passion. - Maida
Let's start a conversation »
The Staff at Steve & Kate's Camp has been a tremendous resource for my four-year old son, who experienced his first camp this past summer. At the helm, Maida is a leader by example who exudes kindness, genuine interest, compassion with comedic flair. When my son experienced some unusual behavior, she immediately contacted us to inform us of the behavior and strategized with us the best approach to a resolution. I cannot recommend Maida and her team highly enough in making the first summer at Steve & Kate's camp an unforgettable and positive experience. - Nichole G. (S&K parent)
We have spent 3 summers so far with Maida and her team at Steve & Kate's. She brings lighthearted fun and smiles to every summer day along with an expertise and confidence in working with kids that makes a nervous mom like me very at ease. [My son] especially loves his time with Maida, and always tells me how much he misses her during the school year. We both look forward to next summer, [my son] will be making bread, filming crazy fun shorts & lego animations, and generally living it up while I will have complete confidence that Maida is providing him with safe, fun, and amazing summer days while I am at work. And that piece of mind is the best gift ever! - Julianne E. (S&K parent)
Steve & Kate's Camp in Cambridge was a great experience for our kids. Our daughter (12) really liked the studios and especially the counselors. She was so ready to to camp every morning you could really tell she had a great time there! Our son (14) was a mentee for 5 weeks. It was his first grown-up experience and he really got into character. Maida and her team created a great environment for him." "I had a lot of fun during my time in the camp. I also learned lots of new things being a [Mentee]. the counselors were great and very good with the kids. Maida was a very good boss! - Miguel A. (S&K parent)

Lets Taco 'Bout it
The smell of fresh cut grass, the sound of tin baseball bats and 80 degree days...all things that mean summer is just around the corner. You've got questions, I've got answers and we all love tacos (and if not, we can always meet for fro yo, coffee, falafel you name it!)
Just give me a holler at the contact information above, and let me know what works for you.
When: Sat May 27th 2017 9:00 AM - 05:00 PM
Where: Your choice!
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.
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.
