STEVE & KATE'S OAKLAND SUMMER CAMP · DATES: Jun 17 - Aug 23, 2019 · ADDRESS: Park Day School (use entrance on 44th St), 360 42nd St, Oakland, CA

Oakland Summer Day 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.

UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT OUR OAKLAND LOCATION

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

REALLY IMPORTANT CAMP INFORMATION

  • 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.

RECREATIONAL SUMMER CAMP FEATURES

Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Recreational Features.

    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.

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR SUMMER CAMP IN OAKLAND

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.
