Steve & Kate's San Mateo
· DATES: Jun 11 - Aug 10, 2018
· ADDRESS: The Carey School, One Carey School Lane, San Mateo


Our San Mateo location is at capacity for August 6-10 for anyone who has not yet registered for 2018 (if you have days in your account already, you are welcome to attend). We got too much love for too few spots. All other days are available for new registrations. Sign up here to be added to our waitlist for Aug 6-10.


Why not push what you're capable of?

From the moment I started working at Steve & Kate's, I fell in love with the culture. The culture of trust. At S&K, we trust kids to be themselves, try new things, and make mistakes. By trusting kids, we give them the space to be curious and explore, which gives them the confidence and potential to do amazing things. And surrounding myself in this culture helps me to trust myself even more. I believe kids show us a fresh perspective on the world, and I feel so privileged getting to learn from them everyday. I'm looking forward to an awesome summer of fun, laughter, and most importantly, trust.

Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Specials. The Director at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of their four Specials, so feel free to contact your Director to find out what will be scheduled each day.

Extreme Air – Campers flip and fly through the air while harnessed into this-state-of-the art bungee system.

Inflatable Slip and Slide – Cool off in style on our giant inflatable slip and slide. Check with the Director to find out when this will be scheduled, and bring a swimsuit and towel if your child would like to participate.

Smart Karts – Get behind the wheel of one of Silicon Valley's latest and greatest inventions: the first electric smart-kart for kids. Helmets are required and will be provided if needed, but we highly encourage you to bring your own.

Audrey really did have the most amazing time as a mentee. We weren't sure what to expect, but when I heard she was making/serving lunches, playing games, and organizing Friday activities, I was blown away with the variety of her experience. Can't wait for next summer! - Jen E. (San Mateo parent)
The staff was so friendly and warm, reaching out to the kids and making a comfortable environment. I was actually planning to send the boy for only a week in San Mateo due to traffic, but in just that 1 week we became so attached to everyone, I just had to deal with traffic the whole summer to attend this site. Thanks for making our summer awesome! Looking forward to next year! - Jae Min J. (San Mateo parent)
I loved the safety, the variety of studios & how much my daughter enjoyed them. The fact that we were able to drop in anytime was awesome. We loved Roxanne! - Mariam M. (San Mateo parent)
