Steve & Kate's Manhattan - Lower Manhattan
· DATES: Jun 25 - Aug 24, 2018
· ADDRESS: Blue School, 241 Water St, New York


I believe creativity, exploration, and play are the best tools for kids to realize their full potential and Steve & Kate’s is the playground of possibilities. I bring over 15 years of experience working with amazing kids to my role at Steve & Kate’s, from managing camp to teaching art, turning youthful ideas into epic events, and juggling to promote healthy lifestyles. Life’s a garden, and I dig it. I'm looking forward to a summer filled with curiosity and adventure, huge fits of laughter, small choices that may take extraordinary acts of bravery, and awesome mistakes that inspire more creativity and learning. I trust your kids to rise to challenge. Can't wait to meet them!

Unique things about this location

  • Let the sunshine in! There will be an enclosed outdoor terrace for games, specials, and afternoon water activities (weather permitting.)
  • We recommend applying sunblock at home and sending campers with a bathing suit (or change of clothes) and a towel if they would like to participate in water play.
  • Instead of the Breadmaking Studio, we'll be piloting the Sushi Studio. Get ready to roll!
