DC–Capitol Hill Spring Break Camp

Join Our Waitlist

Registration is currently at capacity for our DC Spring Location.

Kids Take Charge

Every aspect of our program is designed to put kids in charge of their own learning experience. At Steve & Kate’s, campers choose from a variety of activities in real-time, as they design their day at camp. As kids try, fail, and learn on their own–they learn to trust their own judgment. These will ultimately be the kids who are prepared to tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Fair, Flexible, & All-Inclusive Fees

Buy any number of days, to attend at any time during our spring camp session. If your plans change for any reason, we’ll automatically refund any unused Day Passes at the end of the season. Fees include lunch, snacks, and all activities & hours (8am–6pm).

Testimonials From Our Camp in DC

The Site director and the staff were outstanding. All the staff were properly trained and honestly engaged with the kids everyday. My daughter has attended other camps and she noted that the staff here were great and involved, they also remembered her name each day. I appreciated that my kid was not just a number but a real person.
Lesley S.

My daughter has enjoyed Steve and Katie camp for the last 3 years, and the best part was making new friends and they all made bread together!

Fees

For as long as COVID regulations require it, registration will be in weekly blocks for Spring Camp, instead of by the day (which is our norm). So, please think about your plans in weekly increments and plan to purchase five Day Passes to cover your full spring session. That being said, we know that things happen. If you do miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically at spring’s end. Learn more about our automatic refund policy here.

All fees include lunch, snacks, and all activities and hours: 8:00am to 6:00pm. 

Includes: Lunch, snacks, activities, and all hours, 8am–6pm
