Camp Dates

July 27 - September 4, 2020


In Chicago, we welcome campers between the ages of 4-12.

Drop Off & Pick Up

2020 Fees

  • Registration will be in weekly blocks, instead of by the day. It’s the first time in 40 years that we won’t be able to allow campers to do daily drop-in. As much as we’d love to be able to have campers join us for just a day or two each week, we won’t be able to fill their spot on missed days. So, please, give us five. That being said, we know that things happen. If your kid does miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair. Fees include pizza, snacks and all hours 8:30am to 5:30pm.

Day Pass



  • 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.

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. 


 Our West Loop campus for Summer 2020 does not have an outdoor space of its own. To provide the opportunity for campers to go outdoors, we will offer the options to Squads daily to walk to a nearby park (within 2 blocks).

If you are joining us this summer, please take a moment to complete this form to let us know if you approve of your child walking to the park. 

Camper's Park Schedule: 

10:40 - 11:40 a.m. - Squad 1, Squad 2, and Squad 6.

1:30 - 2:30 p.m. - Squad 3, Squad 4, and Squad 5.

Food is a big deal for us. So is having camp be an all-inclusive experience. We plan to offer lunch and snacks; we just need to do so in a manner that fits with safety guidelines and the logistics of our new normal. While we may add options later, we know that we can deliver on campers' favorite item—pizza! Hot from ovens and into sealed boxes, we can get this item into kids' hands without worry. You can, of course, choose to pack something instead or as a supplement, but pizza will be there. We will also offer an array of snacks for kids to nosh on throughout the day. All snacks will arrive to each stable group in closed packages. We will announce the specific line up in the following weeks, but rest assured, tummies will be full.


Our daughter has been attending Steve & Kate’s camp for 3 summers at the West Loop location. Steve & Kate’s has been a great experience for our entire family. As a parent I love the convince of an open time frame throughout the day. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the staff connected me with my daughter, learned her name, and my name as well. Getting to really know and relate to the staff helped ease my mind about leaving my daughter at camp for the day. In fact, as a family we have befriended 2 -3 of the staff members and they are now more like family. The facility was always clean, organized, and well maintained. We are grateful to have found Steve & Kate’s camp and so grateful to have connected with Amy the director. Our daughter looks forward to eventually mentoring at Steve & Kate's in a year or two.

Steve & Kate’s is amazing. My daughters talk about going all year long! It can be difficult to drop your kids off somewhere all day while you work. In three summers at Steve & Kate’s, I️ have never once had my kids say they didn’t want to go in the morning... and they have often complained I️ pick them up too early. It’s a wonderful feeling to know your kids are not only safe but having tons of fun. The staff is amazing, they are people who are genuinely interested in working with kids. Would recommend Steve & Kate’s to anyone!
