STEVE & KATE'S SAN MATEO SPRING CAMP · DATES: Apr 6-10, 2020 · ADDRESS: The Carey School, One Carey School Ln, San Mateo

San Mateo Spring Camp

There is a special kind of magic that goes along with camp and it is this magic that has, for as long as I can remember, made camp my happy place. Maybe the magic comes from having the chance to explore, learn and play on your own terms. Or perhaps it's how camp inherently encourages self-expression and relationship building. Wherever it comes from, it is my goal to make this camp community your happy place, too. Spring Break will be here before we know it and I can't wait to share the magic with you!

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!
