Steve and Kate's Camp is a large program with several of locations across and dozens in California alone. Despite its large size, they do a fantastic job of making sure each location has a small "mom and pop" feel where every camper gets maximum individualized and personal attention from the counselors. This approach helps ensure a camp environment where every child can thrive and reach their personal best. At Steve and Kate's Camp, children are encouraged to be wild, creative, goofy, sing songs, play games and have fun, but always within the framework of making friends and mutual respect. This is a camp that tailors its programs to each individual child -- a trait we admire in an age where many camps structure their programs firmly into a "one size fits all cookie cutter format." Instead, Steve and Kate's designs its camp around your child's interests. There's a bunch of perks for parents too - lunch and snacks are included and you never have to register in advance...drop ins are welcome, a big help if something unplanned comes up and you need childcare coverage for the day, or just in case your child gets the urge to go to camp out of the blue...Steve and Kate's Camp will be waiting for you!
