Westside Summer Camp

As a native Angeleno, artist, and educator, I look forward to leading the summer programming at Steve & Kate's L.A. Westside location. It is my goal to co-create a vibrant and connected summer experience, all the while collaborating with families, our community, and team members alike to reach such a vision! May we come to establish respect, trusting relationships, and a holistically safe environment that will propel us into a rich, fun, and memorable camp season.

RECREATIONAL SUMMER CAMP FEATURES

Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Recreational Features. The Director at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of their three Recreational Features, so feel free to contact your Director or look at the Daily Features schedule below to find out what will be scheduled each day.

  • AQUABLASTER_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Aquablaster
    Get pepped and prepped to get pumped - and get going! The Aquablaster is a head-to-head sprint for splash, as two competitors race to be the first to fill and then explode a water balloon over the other. It’s a rush to make it rain and cool down with the quickness. Check with the Director or the schedule below to learn when it’s a water play day, and then all you need is a swimsuit and towel to hydrate-participate!

  • GAGA_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Gaga
    The name of the game and also how campers feel about it: Gaga! This fan fave is essentially a high energy dodgeball-style game played in an octagonal pit. There may be 8 sides to this arena, but one opinion...gaga!

  • PEDAL_KARTS_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Pedal Karts
    Any adventurous creatures or speed-monsters can become a Terrain-a-saurus Rex when they hit the (camp) streets on these Berg Pedal Karts. Souped-up yet super safe, these hot wheels are kid-powered and designed for mighty maneuvering. Helmets are required and will be provided if needed, but we highly encourage you to bring your own.
