Portland Summer Day Camp

Kids Take Charge

At Camp, kids take chances and take charge, shaping their day, their way. More choices and fewer expectations creates more possibilities, more self-trust and less self-doubt. 

Our adaptability works to our advantage. Right now we can’t quite operate as usual, but we’ve made the most of mandates and modifications so that kids can make moves (or movies, or magic monster mittens) that matter to them.

Fair And Flexible Fees

Buy any number of days (or weeks, due to pandemic procedures) without worrying you’ll lose what you don’t use. If plans un-plan or cancellations crop-up, we’ll always issue refunds for any unused Passes after the Camp session wraps for the season. It’s how our enrollment rolls with the punches.

New Format, Same Flex

Modifications are required for both registration and rollout of activities as we navigate pandemic protocols. Booking by week instead of by day, and moving through Camp in smaller pod-like “Squads” will feel different than past years. But, these adjustments are temporary (and for everyone’s safety) and won’t compromise our commitment to featuring fan favorite programming and issuing fair, automatic refunds.

Activities

What The Day Will Look Like

After registration, but before attending, campers select and sign up for an interest-based, pod-like group, called Squads. At Camp, they’ll gather with their fellow enthusiasts in indoor or outdoor spaces, to immerse themselves in activities or pursue projects with an emphasis that speaks to their tastes (or, in Sampler Squads, a little bit of everything!). Each Squad will have related go-to supplies and equipment, as well as general goodies for games and artistic freestyling. 

Campers will also have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor classes, socially distanced indoor and outdoor rec, performances, fan-favorites like Gameshow, gaga, and wacky inflatables, or cruise a circuit of rotating activities featuring Lego blocks, dynamic marble runs and more. All activities are available to every camper, no matter their age.

Our current Squad list looks a little like this: 

Interest-Based Squads

Campers sign up for these "mini-camps" within the camp before attending.

Staff

Kid-thusiasts

Our sites are staffed with kids’ number one fans, hailing from all kinds of backgrounds but with the common denominator being they’re all about our campers. Curious, compassionate and creative, both our year-round and seasonal teams are eager and equipped to give kids just the right amount of structure and guidance.

All staff members are at least 18 years old, are background checked, and are trained in CPR and First-Aid. Counselors will wear masks at all times and are trained on all COVID-19 best practices.

Food

Lunch Is On Us

We provide lunch and snacks in alignment with the current state safety guidelines of our new normal. While more options will be added later, we know that we can provide caesar salad and sunbutter and jelly sandwiches daily, on top of campers' favorite item: pizza. Hot from ovens and in sealed boxes, we can get this item safely into kids' hands without worry. You can, of course, choose to pack something instead or as a supplement.

We’ll also offer an array of snacks for kids to nosh on throughout the day. All snacks will arrive to each squad pre-portioned. We’ll announce specific line-ups closer to the start of season, but rest assured, tummies will be full.

Fees

Flexible and Fair

For as long as COVID regulations require it, registration will be in weekly blocks, instead of by the day (which is our norm). So, please think about your plans in weekly increments. That being said, we know that things happen. If you do miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair. Fees include lunch, snacks and all hours 8:00am to 6:00pm.

Day Pass

Registration will be in weekly blocks, instead of by the day (our norm). So, please think about your plans in weekly increments. That being said, we know that things happen. If you do unexpectedly miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically at summer's end. Fair is fair.

$105 per day

Summer Pass

For anyone attending more than 30 days, consider our Summer Pass, with one fee that covers the entire summer. If you end up coming to camp less, worry not. We’ll add up what you would have paid at the Day Pass rate and refund the difference automatically at summer's end.

$3,150 per child

Steve & Kate’s also offers limited need-based financial aid to qualifying families. For more information please see our Financial Aid page.

Please be sure to read our Things to Know Before Coming to Camp page for important information including COVID safety procedures and pick-up & drop-off instructions.
