Oakland Summer Camp

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.

  • Camp 510 also operates on the same campus - please be sure to check parking instructions to be sure you come to our entrance!
  • Most classrooms do not have AC, but the air flows pretty well.
  • Oakland is one of the larger sites in the Bay Area. If you are looking for a smaller experience, you may consider the Berkeley campus.


  • Parking can be a little challenging as there are only a handful of designated spots for parents to park in the lot. There is also nearby street parking available. Parents should plan on giving themselves a little extra time each morning.
  • Starting on 8/19 we'll be moving some of our activities into wedding-style tents outside. All of our activities will continue as usual and we'll provide tours to show campers the new spaces. These tents will bring life to the outdoor area.
  • BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW FOR THE VIRTUAL ORIENTATION. This provides information relevant to all of our camp locations, including information and videos about how to check-in/check-out, what to bring (and not bring), and so much more.

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.


Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Recreational Features. The Director at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of their three Recreational Features, so feel free to contact your Director or look at the Daily Features schedule below to find out what will be scheduled each day.


    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. 


    Modular Sports Combo- The fun forecast foresees a triple threat of athletic entertainment ahead, as this combo course is coming in full-speed! Wind-up and perfect that pitch during a little target practice, read the blitz and make plays from the pocket on the football field, and makes waves as the new Splash Brother - or Sister! - by working on your jumpshot. When your sports tastes span the entire menu, get a bite-sized portion across the scoreboard with this baller buffet.


    Climbing Wall (July 29 - August 16 only)Race to the top of the mobile Climbing Wall and soak up the view. Camp looks beautiful from 20' in the air. Closed toe shoes recommended for participation.


Throughout each week, we'll spice camp up with featured workshops such as dance, sports clinics, or dress-up days.  We generally schedule the most jaw-dropping summer camp feature on Friday! Check back often for updates!

My 6-year old went to Steve & Kate's in Oakland this summer and I don't know who loved it more, me or her! She loved seeing many familiar faces from school and other camps she's been to (unplanned), the food (!), the activities (like making her own video with friends, learning to knit, baking bread) and the freedom to roam and make decisions for herself.

I really like that you've carved out something truly unique - a completely low-stress experience for parents. No pre-planning, no need to make lunch, no need to decide which days to attend, automatic refunds. It took some stress out of planning our summer.

Dan C.

(S&K parent)

Even though there are so many kids, she was able to put a personal touch to it by remembering every kid’s name, being open to suggestions as well as remembering to remind my 4 year old daughter to go to the bathroom! My daughter had so much fun making a dress for her bear, making bread, dancing, playing with the weekly specials and the list goes on and on.
