STEVE & KATE'S CORTE MADERA · DATES: Jun 15 - Aug 14, 2020 · ADDRESS: The Cove School, 330 Golden Hind Passage, Corte Madera, CA

Corte Madera Summer Camp

I can't believe this will be my 9th summer with Steve & Kate's!  Prior to working at Steve & Kate's, I had an extensive background in coaching at the youth, high school and college levels and have always loved the team and community building aspect that came with it.  I'm excited to be back at The Cove School for our 3rd year to continue to create a bigger Steve & Kate's community where we all share similar interests in how our flexible program and self directed philosophy help nurture your child's creative development.

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. 


Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Specials. More info on this location’s weekly and daily specials in 2020 coming soon.


2020 menu details coming soon. In the meantime, you can read more about how food works at camp here.


Our kids look forward to Steve & Kate's camp all year. The incredible range of activities, the positive and creative staff, and the laid-back vibe make summer feel like summer. And I'm grateful for the break from making lunches (I can't believe how much our kids love the food). We've been going for four years and we'll keep going until they make us stop!

What a great program! I cannot say good enough things about Steve & Kate's and I think you play a big role in it! Kids love Steve & Kate's this was our 3rd summer (Edgar's second) and we are planning on returning again next summer. In fact, Dylan is already planning on becoming a "mentee" and is planning on working at Steve & Kate's when she grows up. Thank you for everything you do!

Steve & Kate's is the best! Our daughter loves all the different activities and the staff are super caring and supportive. Bear is amazing and has made our experience at Steve & Kate's really special. There is a real sense of community and our daughter has made friends at camp that she continues to keep in contact with. Honestly, when we signed our daughter up two summers ago I never would have anticipated what a positive experience it would be, or how much she would anticipate returning each summer to do it all over again.
