All about that imagination.

Creativity is a powerful tool and we're here to help your camper develop theirs. From blanket forts in the basement to epic adventures in the park, our imagination and passion for storytelling have made us who we are today. At Steve and Kate's we revel in the opportunity to help kids develop skills in an environment free from the constraints of more traditional learning methods. We look forward to meeting your family and together we'll make an amazing summer! - Jess & Amelia

Let's start a conversation »


Daryl absolutely loved S&K. He wants to go back next summer. Not having a fixed schedule worked very well for him. He liked that he could move around freely and make his own decisions about what to do when. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone. - Ayodele E. (S&K parent)
My kids loved it! Everyday they brought home crafts and bread. They were chatty with each other about what they had done and whom they had played with. - Jeanhee K. (S&K parent)
My son was sewing and making cool things in the style studio. It was pretty awesome and unexpected. - Gabriel R. (S&K parent)

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.

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.

Gaga - Jump into a fast paced, high energy version of dodgeball played in an octagonal pit.
