MANHATTAN, NY

90 Washington Winter Break Camp

RESERVE THROUGH MY BH!

Sponsored by Bright Horizons Back-Up Care

Families with Bright Horizons Back-Up Care benefits can reserve any number of days available in your BH account–no weekly sessions required! Just reserve your dates of care through your normal Bright Horizons booking channels, and select your local Steve & Kate’s Camp as the requested provider.

Here, we put kids in charge.

Preposterous? Possibly. Effective? You betcha.

When you trust kids, they trust themselves. For 42 years, we’ve put kids in charge of their own learning experience. As they try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose activities minute to minute–deciding what they want to do, and for how long. Our job is to get out of their way, cheerlead creative risks, and provide just enough guidance to make sure nobody does anything totally* senseless.

*Totally senseless: By our definition, mistakes aren’t senseless. They’re how you learn.

Testimonials From Our Camps in Manhattan

(My daughter's) first day was a success. She raved about camp!! She has attended several camps in the past but in her words "this is the best camp ever." As for myself, I feel so much better knowing that she is happy!

[I loved most about camp] That at the end of the day when I picked him [my son] up, he couldn't wait to return the next day.

(My son) had a great time, he liked the freedom of choice and the variety of activities! He'll be back tomorrow and can't wait for the go-karting! Thanks so much - it's incredible how much flexibility you offer, which is so appreciated!!
