When you trust kids, they trust themselves. Since 1980, Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. They try, fail, and learn on their own. They learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of an ever changing world with creativity and confidence.

Campers choose minute to minute from a variety of activities including, sewing, stop-motion animation, music, performing arts, makers crafts, bread making, and more. They’ll decide what they want to do, and for how long. This summer families can buy as many days as they’d like, and use them at any time. No weekly reservations required–just show up! Or, if you need more care, purchase a Summer Pass, which covers the whole season. If for any reason your plans change, we’ll automatically refund any unused Passes in full at summer’s end. Lunch, snacks, and all hours (8am–6pm) are included.
