Steve & Kate's Mill Valley

All in for Summer!
I’m so thrilled to be at beautiful Tam Valley Elementary this summer, facilitating a camp that gives kids the power to choose their activities and direct their own learning and development. Our program at its core is all about providing a creative space, where campers can experiment, engage, and of course have a ton of fun—surrounded by caring and responsible counselors who believe deeply in self-directed learning. It’s the perfect recipe for an unforgettable summer full of breadmaking and animation, go-carts, DJ-ing and so much more!
Let's start a conversation »
Thanks for being such a fantastic resource for working parents, and for consistently hiring awesome staff and striving to constantly improve. We love you Steve and Kate's! - Christina de Z. (Mill Valley parent)
I loved that all 3 of my kids (ages 7-11, 1 girl, 2 boys) all found activities that they loved at one camp! I also loved the flexibility. - Rachel R. (Mill Valley parent)
We love your camp! My kids had a great time and asked to go to camp most days. My youngest even braved camp without his brother, which WAS brave! He loved making gluten free bread and sewing fun things for me. - Robin C. (Mill Valley 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.
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.
