Steve & Kate's Corte Madera
· DATES: Jun 11 - Aug 10, 2018
· ADDRESS: The Cove School, 330 Golden Hind Passage, Corte Madera

Give kids choice, amazing things happen.

I can't believe this will be my 7th summer with Steve & Kate's!  I'm looking forward to our new site in Corte Madera after having run our Kentfield location the past 4 years.  Prior to working at Steve & Kate's, I had an extensive background in coaching at the youth, high school and college levels and have always loved the team and community building aspect that came with it.  I'm excited to welcome and blend both Mill Valley and Kentfield communities into our new location for 2018 and continue to create a bigger Steve & Kate's community where we all share similar interests in how our flexible program and self directed philosophy help nurture your child's creative development.

Our kids look forward to Steve & Kate's camp all year. The incredible range of activities, the positive and creative staff, and the laid-back vibe make summer feel like summer. And I'm grateful for the break from making lunches (I can't believe how much our kids love the food). We've been going for four years and we'll keep going until they make us stop! - Alexa K. (Marin parent)
What a great program! I cannot say good enough things about Steve & Kate's and I think you play a big role in it! Kids love Steve & Kate's this was our 3rd summer (Edgar's second) and we are planning on returning again next summer. In fact, Dylan is already planning on becoming a "mentee" and is planning on working at Steve & Kate's when she grows up. Thank you for everything you do! - Kathy M. (Marin parent)
Steve & Kate's is the best! Our daughter loves all the different activities and the staff are super caring and supportive. Bear is amazing and has made our experience at Steve & Kate's really special. There is a real sense of community and our daughter has made friends at camp that she continues to keep in contact with. Honestly, when we signed our daughter up two summers ago I never would have anticipated what a positive experience it would be, or how much she would anticipate returning each summer to do it all over again. - Sara L. (Marin parent)
