Steve & Kate's Berkeley
· DATES: Jun 11 - Aug 10, 2018
· ADDRESS: The Berkeley School, 1310 University Avenue, Berkeley


When kids explore, make mistakes, and learn, magical things happen and new worlds open up. I'm here at Steve & Kate's because I believe that when we as adults model respect and trust for kids, we help them know that they are capable, even when the going gets tough. I would love to talk with you - feel free to give me a call or drop me an email any time!

Unique things about this location

  • We've got an urban campus with a fun play structure but only a small astroturf field.
  • Ready to get pied? On Fridays after lunch (from 12:30-1pm) we'll head across the street to Strawberry Creek Park for some epic pie-ing!
  • Please leave personal electronic devices and valuables at home (we don't want any to get lost or damaged!). If campers have any devices or personal items that they absolutely must have, please contact Cody and we can organize leaving it in HQ so we can keep it safe and they can come in to HQ for use.

Thanks so much for your camp. We wish his elementary school was designed the same way! He absolutely flourished over the summer because of it. Brilliant organization and wonderful, caring counsellors. Also, the food was a big hit! He loved it. - David S. (Berkeley parent)
He LOVED it. It was one of the best received camps he's ever gone to, and he's been to a lot. I appreciated the staff keeping in touch with us, how it was organized, both on the first day of camp and all the info on the website. I love the hours and that lunch is included. I love the creativity and independence you foster. Thank you very much. - Karin R. (Berkeley parent)
My son loves Steve & Kate's. I strongly recommend [it] to everyone, and I plan to have him go every year until he's too old. For my son, Steve & Kate's in Berkeley is both familiar to him and a place he feels safe. A lot of camps offer childcare, Steve & Kate's offers a place where kids can be themselves and have a blast. It's a place created for kids and focused on giving them autonomy and the ability to explore and be themselves. - Bethany C. (Berkeley parent)
