STEVE & KATE'S ARLINGTON · DATES: June 24 - August 16, 2019 · ADDRESS: Tuckahoe Elementary, 6550 North 26th Street, Arlington, VA 22213

Arlington Summer Camp

I believe that children should have the freedom and tools to explore what they are passionate about. And if they don't know what they're passionate about yet - all the more reason for us to give them the tools and support they need to feel confident in exploring all that camp has to offer! I am so excited to work with all of the fashionistas, coders, chefs, actors, directors, and singers at Steve & Kate's Camp in Arlington this summer!

TESTIMONIALS

This is a wonderful, wonderful camp!  Our 7-year-old was exposed to things we hadn't done at home before such as... baking bread and sewing a vest!  The counselors are all really positive and friendly.  In addition to the camp content itself, Steve & Kate's has really great (read: extended) hours and provides all food during the day!  There is also a refund policy in case your child doesn't use all the days you purchased in advance.  I signed up my 10-year-old, too, but he ended up getting off a wait list for another camp so I got my fee refunded to me.  I feel like this is a camp designed by parents because it is so easy to work with.  I'm really hoping they continue to offer an Arlington location!!

Our five-year-old daughter has had a fantastic time at Steve and Kate's Camp - Arlington this summer. My husband and I love the flexible hours, the fact that breakfast, lunch, and snack are provided, and the myriad of activities offered. Additionally, Jules, the Director, is wonderful as are all of the counsellors. Today was my daughter's fifth day at Steve and Kate's - Arlington and in that short amount of time she has constructed a small robot, made a short stop action film, ridden go-carts, learned to crochet a bracelet, made bread, and engaged in coding activities. Recently I had a day off of work and my daughter said she still wanted to go to Steve and Kate's because she's had so much fun there. I also really enjoy being able to log into my account and see photos of what my daughter is doing at camp during the day.
