BOSTON, MA

Boston–Fenway Summer Day Camp

REGISTER NOW

Here, we put kids in charge.

Preposterous? Possibly. Effective? You betcha.

When you trust kids, they trust themselves. Since 1980, we’ve put kids in charge of their own learning experience. As they try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose minute to minute from a variety of activities. They’ll decide what they want to do, and for how long. Our job is to get out of their way, cheerlead creative risks, and provide just enough guidance to make sure nobody does anything totally* senseless.

*Totally senseless: By our definition, mistakes aren’t senseless. They’re how you learn.

Fair, Flexible, & All-Inclusive Fees

Buy any number of weeks to use throughout the summer! Or, if you need more camp, we have a Summer Pass, which covers the entire camp season. All Passes include lunch, snacks, activities, and all hours (8am–6pm), so there are no surprise fees later on.

And if for any reason your plans change, we’ll refund your unused Day Passes automatically in full at summer’s end.

Advanced Weekly Reservations Required

This summer families will be required to reserve their weekly session prior to attending camp, due to Boston regulations. In order to provide care for as many full-time campers as possible, we ask that families please only reserve the session if they plan to attend that week. Still, we understand things happen, and we’ll refund unused days if anything comes up.

STOP-MOTION ANIMATION

Kids bring their stories to life in the Media Lab, as they create stop-motion “shorts” filmed on our custom-built animation stages designed to frame sets perfectly.

So, please think about your plans in increments of five Day Passes, to cover your weekly session(s). That being said, we know that things happen. If for any reason your plans change, or you need to miss a day of camp, we’ll refund your unused Passes automatically in-full at summer’s end. We also offer need-based financial aid to qualifying families. Learn more or submit an application, here

This is Cesara’s 3rd year with Steve & Kate’s Camp! As a former properties designer for theatre, Cesara taught herself how to sew, craft, and general build some pretty cool things out of random materials. When not crafting or at camp, you can usually find Cesara napping or going for a dip in the nearest body of water.

This summer Cesara is most excited to meet all of the campers & learn everyones’ favorite ice cream flavor!
