Steve & Kate's Palo Alto
· DATES: Jun 12 - Aug 11, 2017
· ADDRESS: Gideon Hauser Jewish Day School, 450 San Antonio Road, Palo Alto

Let's create a world where kids can be kids.

I am a seeker of joy, and I love getting to know new, like-minded people. At Steve & Kate's, I get the privilege of getting to know you and your kids. Through these relationships, I constantly hear stories from parents about how fleeting childhood is, and how much pressure kids face every day. So I create a world where kids can be just that: kids. Where freedom and play is not only encouraged, but valued. Where your kids can be their best selves, and have a heck of a lot of fun along the way.

The best part of my job is getting to know you - my Palo Alto families. I want to learn about all that excites you and even what freaks you out a little about camp. Life is tough, but camp doesn't have to be. Together, let's make this the best summer yet. - Jaimey

Testimonials

We are truly pleased with Steve & Kate's Camp. It's the kind of camp I would have enjoyed going to as a kid; but back then, we got to be kids. We love everything it has to offer and [our son] looks forward to going everyday! I only have great things to say about the camp and how it is arranged/structured. Steve & Kate's Camp is a great fit for our family! - Nichole W. (S&K parent)
We adore Jaimey and how she manages the variety of behavioral styles. - Luanne M. (S&K parent)

Activities for every interest.

Really important information about Palo Alto

  • Water days will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (or on especially hot days, as needed). We recommend that families apply sunblock at home and send children with a bathing suit or change of clothes, and a towel.
  • In order to honor the traditions of the school, if you plan to supplement our food options with snacks from home, we ask that you not pack any meat or shellfish.
  • When you arrive at camp, you’ll be greeted by our security guard at the 4th green entrance gate. On your first day of camp, please provide proof of registration at the gate (a print out or screenshot of your registration will do!). After you check-in to camp the first time, you’ll be provided a S&K car window slick for use on future days. If you are not registered and are visiting camp for a tour during the summer, please inform the security guard who will connect you with a Steve & Kate's staff member to check-in as a guest. Note that tours are not available between 9:15am and 9:45am and 11:45am and 12:30pm
  • For check-out at the end of the day, staff will start the check-out process from the comfort of your car (think In-n-Out). From there you'll park and head into our Parent Lounge to wait until your camper is ready to go home.
  • BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW FOR THE VIRTUAL ORIENTATION. This provides information relevant to all of our camp locations, including information and videos about how to check-in/check-out, what to bring (and not bring), and so much more.

Palo Alto Youngest Camper Launchpad Meet-Up
We always find that a familiar face helps make the first day of camp that much better - especially when you're one of our youngest campers. With that in mind, join us for some fun, outdoor play at Mitchell Park (exact location will be sent out the week before), meet some of the summer staff and fellow 4 & 5 year-old Launchpad campers. We can't wait to meet you!
When: Sun June 04th 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Where: Mitchell Park, 600 E Meadow Dr, Palo Alto, CA 94303 (exact location will be emailed out to you prior to the event. Please RSVP to get notified.)

Specials

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 Monday, Wednesday & Friday 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.
