Steve & Kate Online—Where Kids Are In Charge

Steve & Kate’s has always been about putting kids in charge—they leap and lead, today, to build the self-confidence they’ll need to wrangle unknowns tomorrow. We’re now bringing our approach online for a virtual camp experience.

Kids log on and choose from crafty activities, goofy activities, dancey activities, gamey activities and more. And just like at our in-person camps, we create a community where kids are able to be themselves and connect with others who share their passions.

Children’s worlds have gotten a whole lot smaller lately. Our goal is to open them back up.

An Online World Of Possibilities

We set up “live rooms” by activity and kids pursue, sample, and dive into whatever makes them happy. In each “room”, kids will find others geeking out over common interests. Virtual camp activities include: Animation, Costume Challenges, Crochet, Dance, DIY Workouts, Gameshow, Improv, Magic the Gathering, Milk and Cookie Hour, Music Appreciation, Pet Yoga, Storytelling and more. You can log in to your account anytime to view the daily Online camp schedule. We maintain small group sizes to better foster real relationships within our live, virtual camp world.

We can’t say exactly what each day will look like, where they’ll go, or what kids will wind up whipping up, but one thing’s for sure: kids are in charge. 

Online Camp Activities Include:

IMPROV

DIY WORKOUT

GAMESHOW

DANCE

MAGIC THE GATHERING

TESTIMONIALS

My daughter was burned out on "virtual" class and camp but Steve and Kate's managed to bring the same zany fun of their in person camp to the online programs.

It was great to see kids from other Steve & Kate’s camps during virtual online camp. My daughter got to share her finger knitting skills she picked up at our S&K camp last year and was so proud! Also loved the Improv class which got my son out of his shell!

My daughter said she loved it because the online camp felt just like being in-person at Steve & Kate's!
