Steve & Kate's Seattle
· DATES: Jun 19 - Aug 18, 2017
· ADDRESS: Bright Water School, 1501 10th Avenue East, Seattle

We do this for the little moments.

We love what we do. Witnessing a child come into their own, navigating self-guided exploration and play. Witnessing a young person make a mistake, followed by the inevitable ‘a-ha!’ moment. Sharing with a parent that their painfully shy child stood on stage in front of a large crowd and proudly showed off the outfit she made in the Fashion Studio. This is truly what it’s all about for us.

This summer, with the help of staff and campers, we're cultivating a space that feels safe and supportive for every child. With trust and guidance from our families, we will work to create an uplifting environment that is welcoming and fun for one and all!

Let's start a conversation »


[The Director] runs a tight ship, which we parents love, and the girls LOVE going to camp every summer. I tell everyone to go to Steve & Kate's in Seattle! - Carol M. (Seattle parent)
Beautiful school, easy drop-off/pick-up, kids have freedom to play, Parent Lounge & coffee for us! Amazing summer, can't wait to go back. Staff blew us away- bravo! - Jake S. (Seattle parent)
Thank you so much for what you do and the way you do it!!! I raved about the consistent, awesome customer service at Steve and Kate's over breakfast this morning, then Noah raved the whole drive to school to our carpool buddy. See you this summer! - Lisa H. (Seattle parent)

Really important information about Seattle

  • Important Safety Warning: As you're exiting the roundabout, drop-off zone by car after dropping off or picking up your children, please observe the "Wrong Way" and "Do Not Enter" signs and do not exit through that entrance drive. We understand that these signs can be difficult to see so we have also put up a "No Left Turn" sign to ensure safety for all parents and campers. Also, please do not park along the south side of the building in parking spots marked specifically for "Gage" and "Bright Water Waldorf School", which are other groups that Steve & Kate's is sharing the campus with.
  • 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.

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.
