Steve & Kate's Menlo Park DATES: July 27 - August 14, 2020 ADDRESS: Oak Knoll Elementary, 1895 Oak Knoll Ln, Menlo Park, CA 94025

Menlo Park Summer Camp

Camp life is needed more than ever—to make real connections in person. Read below to find out more about our plans for this summer and how we'll manage to keep kids safe and have fun.

Registration will be in in a three week block, instead of by the day. It’s the first time in 40 years that we won’t be able to allow campers to drop-in by the day. As much as we’d love to be able to have campers join us whenever they’d like, San Mateo County regulations require that groups of campers remain stable for three at a minimum. That being said, we know that things happen. We're asking families to plan to attend the full time but if your kid does miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair.

2020 Fees

  • Registration will be in weekly blocks, instead of by the day. It’s the first time in 40 years that we won’t be able to allow campers to do daily drop-in. As much as we’d love to be able to have campers join us for just a day or two each week, we won’t be able to fill their spot on missed days. So, please, give us five. That being said, we know that things happen. If your kid does miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair. Fees include pizza, snacks and all hours 8:30am to 5:30pm.

Day Pass

$100

Please note: due to San Mateo County requirements all campers must attend the full three week session.

REALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • San Mateo County regulations require that groups of campers remain stable for three weeks at a minimum. If your kid does unexpectedly miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair.

Activities

The surest path towards thriving is if kids are driving. 

At Steve & Kate’s, we’ve always believed in following kids’ compasses. Today, our philosophy of self-direction feels even more vital. Campers act on their judgments and fuel their sense of self, develop the drive to adapt, leap and lead. We invest in kids’ boundless capability and credibility. They - and our world - will be better for it.

We can’t say exactly what days at camp will look like, where they’ll go, or what campers will wind up whipping up, but one thing’s for sure: kids drive.

LUNCH

Food is a big deal for us. So is having camp be an all-inclusive experience. We plan to offer lunch and snacks; we just need to do so in a manner that fits with safety guidelines and the logistics of our new normal. While we may add options later, we know that we can deliver on campers' favorite item—pizza! Hot from ovens and into sealed boxes, we can get this item into kids' hands without worry. You can, of course, choose to pack something instead or as a supplement, but pizza will be there. We will also offer an array of snacks for kids to nosh on throughout the day. All snacks will arrive to each stable group in closed packages. We will announce the specific line up in the following weeks, but rest assured, tummies will be full.

TESTIMONIALS

We are truly pleased with Steve & Kate's Camp. It's the kind of camp I would have enjoyed going to as a kid; but back then, we got to be kids. We love everything it has to offer and [our son] looks forward to going everyday! I only have great things to say about the camp and how it is arranged/structured. Steve & Kate's Camp is a great fit for our family!

My kids love Steve and Kate's; they make strong friendships, they are able to feel the self efficacy of creation, and they learn more about what they enjoy doing when they have autonomy. Daniella always knew about everything that was going on with each camper and facilitated the camp experience to make sure that the students' voices were first and foremost. When my kids got out of the car each morning, they couldn't stop themselves from running to start their day at camp!
