Steve & Kate's Santa Monica

It takes a village.

Hey camp families! I joined the Steve & Kate’s Camp family in March 2016. I’ve been working with children and families for most of my life, but the most important experience I have with children is being a mom to my two amazingly talented boys. As a parent in the community, I love getting to know other families and sharing our stories of what raising children looks and feels like. Steve & Kate’s Camp provides the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. And how lucky am I to get to know you and your children and share the joy of discovery and learning?! At the Santa Monica location, my hope is to build a stronger community for all of our children. As the saying goes, “it takes a village...” And I’m excited to be part of your village!

Unique things about this location

  • State of the art theater to be used for all camp events such as Antler's Up!
  • Spacious black top area for sports and recreation with plenty of shade. There is no field at this location.
  • As the summer heats up, water play will be offered in the afternoons, daily. We recommend families apply sunblock at home and send children with a bathing suit or a change of clothes and a towel.
  • Please leave scooters, skateboards, bikes, and skates, including wheelies, at home. Due to limited space, we cannot safely use these at our site.
  • The campus is completely gated with a security team on site 24/7.

Activities for every interest.

Whatever your child’s passion, they can push their limits at our camp.
Stop-motion animation, fashion, coding, breadmaking, sports, music, dance, and so much more.

Sports – Each day, we’ll offer a featured sport for campers of all ages and abilities, and we’ll also schedule other active games throughout the day to spice things up.

Pillow Polo
Street Hockey


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.

Animatronic Ride-Ons – Take a spin around camp on one of our custom motorized Chicken, Moose, or Crocodile go karts! Helmets are required and will be provided if needed, but we highly encourage you to bring your own.

Drone Dome – Go head to head against other campers racing real drones in our custom Drone Dome flight obstacle course.

Gaga – Jump into a fast paced, high energy dodgeball-syle game played in an octagonal pit.

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.
