Use your Bright Horizons Back-Up Care for Summer with Steve & Kate's Camp
Did you know that employer-sponsored back-up care can be used at Steve & Kate’s Camp this summer? Bright Horizons partners with choice employers to offer subsidized back-up care for summer camp at Steve & Kate’s.
Since 1980 Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. Campers choose from a variety of activities in real-time, including sewing, stop-motion animation, coding & gaming, makers crafts, baking, sports & recreation, and more. They’ll choose what activities they want to participate in and for how long–designing their day as they go.
You can reserve any number of the back-up care days you have in your BH account, buy additional retail days if you need more, and even apply the full value of your back-up care days to the cost of a Summer Pass—which covers all days we’re open in summer.
How It Works
Need More Care?
For those looking for more constant care, we offer a Summer Pass, which provides unlimited care at Steve & Kate’s Camp for the entire summer. You can now apply the full value of your Back-Up Care days to the cost of a Summer Pass. Learn how below!
Kind Words About Our Camps
"If kids ruled the world, it might look something like Steve and Kate’s Camp."
"Working parents’ worries dissipate as they contemplate Steve & Kate’s model."
"The children that attend Steve & Kate's blossom and discover a freedom of identity that, in a way, no other institution I've experienced has ever managed. Kids find their thumbprint at Steve & Kate's. My one complaint: Where were they when I was a kid?"
"Steve and Kate’s Camp didn’t set out to cater to the children of folks at Pixar, Industrial Light & Magic and the like, but given their philosophy, it’s no surprise so many attend."
"For families seeking a blend of that traditional camp experience combined with a modern, tech-savvy touch, there’s Steve and Kate’s Camp [which] evokes a laid-back aura true to its California roots, complemented by the company’s Silicon Valley-inspired innovative approaches to everything from programming to payment."
Activities For Every Interest
In the early morning and late afternoons at camp, children ramp up and wind down with recreational choices. For the bulk of the day, children will choose from the activities listed below. While we can’t say exactly what the day will look like, one thing is for sure: The campers are in control.

What is Steve & Kate's Camp?
Steve & Kate’s is a summer day camp that operates in more than 40 locations across the U.S. We also have winter & spring break camps in select cities.
For 42 years, we’ve put kids in charge of their own learning experience. 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.
What's a Summer Pass, and how do I apply the value of my Back-Up Care days toward one?
Steve & Kate’s Camp Summer Pass is a flat rate that covers any day we’re open for a camp season. It includes lunch, snacks, and all hours (8am–6pm).
And now, families can apply the full retail value of their Back-Up Care days toward the cost of a Summer Pass!
To use this option, just purchase your supplemental Day Passes as soon as you’re ready, and then reserve your Back-Up Care days when the 60 day reservation window opens.
Once you have a total of 30* Day Passes in your account, whether they’re Back-Up Care days or purchased through us, you’ll automatically be upgraded to a Summer Pass.
*25 Day Passes are needed for a Summer Pass in D.C & Austin due to the shortened length of summer.
When can I use my benefits for camp?
You can use your Back-Up Care benefits for any camp day we’re open! Once Bright Horizon opens its reservation system 60 days out from the anticipated date of care (depending on your employer’s program), you can reserve your days through their system. If you have any questions specific to your benefits, please be sure to reach out to Bright Horizons or your benefits team.
What if I don't have enough Back-Up Care days to cover all the dates I need?
No worries! Families can supplement their Back-Up Care days by purchasing Passes directly through us at any time. Just log into your account and navigate to the ‘Plans’ tab to purchase Day Passes.
