San Mateo BREAK

We are excited to launch Steve & Kate's BREAK in San Mateo. Last summer, I ran the San Mateo Summer Camp and I'll be joined at BREAK by another Bay Area Self-Director to run the show this Winter and Spring. Don't hesitate to reach out with questions, to schedule a coffee date, or to talk about whatever is on your mind. We love connecting with our families, and look forward to seeing you this BREAK.

Audrey really did have the most amazing time as a mentee. We weren't sure what to expect, but when I heard she was making/serving lunches, playing games, and organizing Friday activities, I was blown away with the variety of her experience. Can't wait for next summer!

The staff was so friendly and warm, reaching out to the kids and making a comfortable environment. I was actually planning to send the boy for only a week in San Mateo due to traffic, but in just that 1 week we became so attached to everyone, I just had to deal with traffic the whole summer to attend this site. Thanks for making our summer awesome! Looking forward to next year!

I loved the safety, the variety of studios & how much my daughter enjoyed them. The fact that we were able to drop in anytime was awesome. We loved Roxanne!
