Alexandria Summer Camp

I feel very lucky to be part of the Steve & Kate’s Camp community in Alexandria. What am I most excited for this summer? Perfecting my sliding technique on the slip'n slide, sewing a cool t-shirt, and playing Rocks (it’s a sort of like capture the flag and freeze tag, but more awesome!) I can’t wait to meet you, so please come to the fun events that I’ll be hosting throughout the spring!!

The surest path towards thriving is if kids are driving. 

At Steve & Kate’s, we’ve always believed in following kids’ compasses. Today, our philosophy of self-direction feels even more vital. Campers act on their judgments and fuel their sense of self, develop the drive to adapt, leap and lead. We invest in kids’ boundless capability and credibility. They - and our world - will be better for it.

We can’t say exactly what days at camp will look like, where they’ll go, or what campers will wind up whipping up, but one thing’s for sure: kids drive. 


Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Specials. More info on this location’s weekly and daily specials in 2020 coming soon.


2020 menu details coming soon. In the meantime, you can read more about how food works at camp here.


We loved Steve and Kate's for our eight year old.  We were new to the area and this was a great way for her to meet new friends and have a great time during the day!  Great camp opportunity for a good price!!!

Hands down the BEST camp my daughters have attended. Extremely Caring counselors, Julia is awesome! Lots of engaging activities and highly flexible pass system. My girls are excited to get there in the morning and have stories about what they learned and did, for days! Not to mention, the menu is great! Cost wise, extremely great value for your dollar. You get quite a bite more than what you pay for!

Steve and Kate's has been our daughter's favorite camp the past two summers. We like the flexibility of being able to go for a few days during the week and not having to sign up in January.  She likes the freedom to choose her own activities.
