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.

Activities for Every Interest

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.



Campers use scaffolded coding apps to build & play games. They'll also create stop-motion animations, movies, & music, as well as have access to other design tools.


Jump into the spotlight with dancing and karaoke, as well as performing art games, performances, & specials.


Hand & machine sewing are available for campers of all ages as well as options for embroidery, knitting, & other artistic flare.


Each week we'll bring in a show-stopping special such as a giant inflatable, race cars, or a climbing wall. Check out our 2022 weekly activity schedule!


Experienced bakers & professional taste-testers unite to experiment with different bread recipes & creations. Kids choose from a variety of fillings, spices, & add-ons to customize the flavors before & after they bake
sports and recreation


Campers and staff join together to play soccer, gaga, capture the flag, or whatever games children are interested in that day.


Imagination is the limit on what campers will create with a mix of basic maker kits, crafts, and art supplies.
slip n slide/ water play


When the weather gets hot, we'll cool down with water games & activities such as water tag, sprinklers, or an inflatable slip n' slide.
Pie day


At Steve & Kate's, Fridays are Pie Day! Our 40+ year tradition continues of ending the week with a whipped cream pie to the face.

Testimonials From Our Summer Camp in Cambridge & Somerville

(My child) had a fantastic first day of camp! He made lots of new friends, he worked on coding projects, and he took so much pride sharing his handmade cinnamon roll with us! He told me when I picked him up from camp that this is "the best camp he's ever attended" and he thanked me for enrolling him! I couldn't be more thrilled! Thank you guys so much for making his summer camp experience so excellent!

(Our kid) had a great first day and is looking forward to more. Thanks for welcoming him and helping him ease into things at his own pace.

The kids were having so much fun yesterday they won’t stop talking about it. Turns out they liked it a lot! At first I wanted to put them in for 4 days a week but am adding another day in for each week to make it a full 5x week now. I thank it will be a blast with this camp for them this year! TY

This is Tyler’s 2nd year directing with Steve & Kate’s. When not at camp you can generally find Tyler reading a graphic novel outside, while enjoying too many snacks. (Actually, can you ever have too many snacks?)

This summer Tyler is looking forward to finally teaching himself to sew!
