Kids Take Charge

Every aspect of our program is designed to put kids in charge of their own learning experience. At Steve & Kate’s, campers choose from a variety of activities in real-time, as they design their day at camp. As kids try, fail, and learn on their own–they learn to trust their own judgment. These will ultimately be the kids who are prepared to tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Fair, Flexible, & All-Inclusive Fees

Buy any number of Day Passes to use any day we’re open this spring. You don’t even need to tell us when you’re coming–just show up! All Passes include lunch, snacks, activities, and all hours (8am–6pm), so there are no surprise fees later on.

And if for any reason your plans change, we’ll refund your unused Passes automatically in full at spring’s end.

Activities for Every Interest

With the trajectory of child vaccinations and loosening regulations, campers will, once again, design their day in real-time by choosing from a variety of activities offered at once. In the early morning and late afternoon, campers ramp up and wind down with recreational choices. For the bulk of the day, children will choose from the activities listed below. While we can’t say exactly what the day will look like, one thing is for sure: The campers are in control.

Testimonials From Our Camps in San Jose

My daughter attends this location and the campus director and his staff go out of their way to accommodate your want/ needs for your child. The camp has plenty of cool activities for your child to do each day and provide snacks and food for the kids. Lots to choose from. Would definitely recommend this camp!

(S&K parent)

I highly recommend Steve and Kate's, and if you are going to do it, have them go for at least 2 weeks, if not more. The activities, like badges, game shows, etc that they do build up over time and the kids get to understand the ins and outs and love it. Great, great camp.
