One Week at Steve & Kate's Camp

At Steve & Kate’s we believe that you need to trust kids with the freedom to make their own choices. Driven by their natural curiosity, children will experiment with their own decision-making and develop the confidence to try, fail, and learn on their own. We offer activities to inspire every child—designed by learning scientists and tested by kids, our studios offer a chance for campers can dig deep into their passions. Whether they are the next big film director, an up-and-coming fashion designer, or bound to be the best baker around, we’ve got something for everyone.

We also believe that camp should be easy for parents, so we make it totally flexible. Buy any number of days (including an all-summer Membership) and show-up whenever—no need to tell us ahead of time that you’re coming. If you buy more than you need, we’ll automatically refund back unused Day Passes at the end of the summer. And with lunch and snacks provided as a part of the camp fees, you might wish we were around all year.

Open this Summer June 12 - Aug 11
Grades Pre-K through 7th, with leadership opportunities for 8th & 9th graders
In Berkeley and 40+ locations nationwide
