STEVE & KATE'S MANHATTAN BEACH · DATES: Jun 17 - Aug 16, 2019 · ADDRESS: Robinson Elementary School, 80 Morningside Drive, Manhattan Beach, CA

Manhattan Beach Summer

Some of my favorite childhood memories are from summer camp where I learned to believe in myself and got the sense that anything is possible. When presented the opportunity to run the Manhattan Beach Steve & Kate’s, I was excited at the thought of helping kids develop the confidence and sense of unlimited possibility that I got from camp. As I enter my third summer with Steve & Kate’s, I can't wait to share in new adventures and exploration with you and your family.

UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THIS LOCATION

  • In order to cut down on plastic waste, please send your kids to camp with a REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE this summer as we will not be providing plastic drinking cups.  (Please remember to write their names on the bottles with permanent ink). 
  • The slip 'n' slide will be in operation during all hot days (75 degrees and higher). We recommend that families apply sunblock at home and send children with a bathing suit or change of clothes, a reusable water bottle and a towel, each day.  That's all they really need.
  • You may want to send your children with their own helmets (bike, skateboard, scooter, etc.), as we will get brand new pedal carts for the summer. For hygienic reasons, we will not be sharing helmets at this site in 2019.
  • Personal electronics (including all smart devices, phones, Apple watches, etc.) will not be permitted on campus in 2019.  From our on-site HQ, your children will always be permitted to contact you (if you want!).
  • Use of Pokemon-style trading cards, roller-blades, skateboards and personal scooters will not be allowed on campus this summer.
  • We are open July 5th!  We'll be offering a modified schedule with 4th of July-themed recreational offerings to celebrate the holiday and adjust to lighter than usual attendance. Some of our regular Studios may not be available. To find out more about programming, you can reach out to your Director.

TESTIMONIALS

I am so grateful for Steve & Kate's camp and for the experience my son had there last summer. There was one counselor in particular that went above and beyond to help him feel like he fits in, that his opinions are valued, and that his talents are meaningful. With her help, camp has given him an amazing boost to his confidence this summer, and it has been a joy to watch him spread his wings. I am also grateful to the camp director, Rachel, who gives wise leadership to both the kids and the counselors and empowers everyone on the team to be their best.

This was Jack's second year back at the Manhattan Beach location and I feel like things really started to click for him in so many ways this summer. For a kid that is so focused on sports I love that he was encouraged to explore other parts of who he is, all while being surrounded with supportive people that just wanted to see him have a good time.

I have an 8 year old daughter who has been attending Steve and Kate’s for the past four summers and she would echo what I have to say about this unique camp. From the moment you check in until the moment you check out it’s such a smooth operation. The flexibility that this camp offers is amazing, but we keep returning for the innovative studios, the energetic counselors, and the one of a kind model.  When I describe Steve and Kate’s to others I often use the term "free range kids”.  My daughter loves that she can go where she wants, when she wants, and for how long she wants. Whether it’s the sewing room or bread making or robotics the kids have the freedom to decide. I really can't say enough good things about this camp!!
