STEVE & KATE'S BERKELEY SUMMER CAMP · DATES: Jun 10 - Aug 9, 2019 · ADDRESS: The Berkeley School, 1310 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA

Camp is now over, but you can reference Summer 2019 info below. We'll be back in November with Summer 2020 updates.

Berkeley Summer Day Camp

When kids explore, make mistakes, and learn, magical things happen and new worlds open up. I'm here at Steve & Kate's because I believe that when we as adults model respect and trust for kids, we help them know that they are capable, even when the going gets tough. I would love to talk with you - feel free to give me a call or drop me an email any time!

UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT OUR BERKELY LOCATION

  • We've got an urban campus with a fun play structure and a small astroturf field.
  • Please leave personal electronic devices and valuables at home (we don't want any to get lost or damaged!). If campers have any devices or personal items that they absolutely must have, please contact Cody and we can organize leaving it in HQ so we can keep it safe and they can come in to HQ for use.
  • We are open July 5th!  We'll be offering a modified schedule with 4th of July-themed recreational offerings to celebrate the holiday and adjust to lighter than usual attendance. Some of our regular Studios may not be available. To find out more about programming, you can reach out to your Director.

REALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • There is a Steve & Kate's door bell to ring when the gate is closed. Please do not ring the school's buzzer.
  • The school will be replacing their rubber flooring by the play structure the week of June 17th. There may be a smell and some additional construction noise while the rubber is being replaced. While this will mean we won't have access to the play structure during this time, we'll continue to have access to the rest of the outdoor activity areas, and the rest of our program will be running normally.
  • 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.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks so much for your camp. We wish his elementary school was designed the same way! He absolutely flourished over the summer because of it. Brilliant organization and wonderful, caring counsellors. Also, the food was a big hit! He loved it.

David S.

(S&K parent)

My son loves Steve & Kate's. I strongly recommend [it] to everyone, and I plan to have him go every year until he's too old. For my son, Steve & Kate's in Berkeley is both familiar to him and a place he feels safe. A lot of camps offer childcare, Steve & Kate's offers a place where kids can be themselves and have a blast. It's a place created for kids and focused on giving them autonomy and the ability to explore and be themselves.

Bethany C.

(S&K parent)

He LOVED it. It was one of the best received camps he's ever gone to, and he's been to a lot. I appreciated the staff keeping in touch with us, how it was organized, both on the first day of camp and all the info on the website. I love the hours and that lunch is included. I love the creativity and independence you foster. Thank you very much.
