A bit about the company

Steve & Kate’s Camp ( introduced individualized learning in a summer camp setting, pioneered flexible enrollment and automatic refunds and implemented technology so aggressively that Apple featured us on their website. We believe that children learn best in settings that allow them to discover their own potential with minimal adult guidance and support. We’re entering our 37th year but it wasn’t until the 26 year marker that we decided to grow. We’re just getting warmed up. Our philosophy and approach is what has set us apart from other camps since 1980.
