With so many different OC summer camps to choose from – your child will NOT get bored this summer.  Which means a win for you, mom!

Steve + Kate's Camp

Steve + Kate's Camp

Since 1980, Steve & Kate’s has put kids in charge of their own learning experience. Kids choose from a variety of activities in real-time, including sewing, coding, maker crafts, baking, sports, and more! As kids try, fail, and learn on their own, they learn to trust their own judgment, and tackle the challenges of the world with creativity and confidence.

Families can buy any number of days, to use at any time–no weekly reservations required. Or, buy a Summer Pass, which covers the whole season. Either way, any unused Passes are automatically refunded at summer’s end.

Jun 19 – Aug 18. Ages: 4–12 | Lunch, snacks & all hours (8am–6pm) included.
