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.

Buy Any Number of Days. Use Them Anytime. Get Refunded for Unused Days.

Buy any number of Day Passes to use any day we’re open this summer. You don’t even need to tell us when you’re coming–just show up! Or, if you need more camp, we have a Summer Pass, which covers the entire camp season. All Passes include lunch, snacks, activities, and all hours (8am–6pm), so there are no surprise fees later on.

And if for any reason your plans change, we’ll refund your unused Passes automatically in full at summer’s end.

Activities for Every Interest

With the trajectory of child vaccinations and loosening regulations, campers will, once again, design their day in real-time by choosing from a variety of activities offered at once. In the early morning and late afternoon, campers 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.

Testimonials From Our Summer Camp in Washington

I really appreciate all the variety and quality of activities my child has to choose from at Steve & Kate’s! The great staff and the efficiency of everything they touch just makes me feel better about dropping my kid off where he wants to be anyway. I wish more things were this simple and effective.

This was the first time my daughter joined Steve & Kate's. We loved how they provide the children with freedom. It was different, but still well structured. Laurel, the director at Bellevue site, is very responsive, which was also a big plus to us. I highly recommend this camp!

Most parents agonize about what to do with the kiddos for summer. I used to, but that was before Steve & Kate's opened in our area. I never have to do that again! I know where my son will be. He will be having fun, getting dirty, eating great food, and doing different adventures. He will come home exhausted but all smiles.
