Steve & Kate's Camp (Chicago - Lakeview)
Steve & Kate’s Camp was founded on the belief that when you trust kids, they learn to trust themselves, and develop a creative confidence that will help them unleash their true potential.
So for 40 years, we’ve been offering summer day camps where kids choose their own adventure through a range of activities, including film, fashion, stop-motion animation, coding, music, dance, sports, and the occasional pie-throwing.
Steve & Kate’s Camp offers a safe, judgment-free environment where kids can be themselves, explore their passions, and make a few mistakes along the way. And because they’re making their own choices, they find a sense of meaning in their activities that is hard to find elsewhere.
Registration will be in weekly blocks, instead of by the day. It’s the first time in 40 years that we won’t be able to allow campers to do daily drop-in. As much as we’d love to be able to have campers join us for just a day or two each week, we won’t be able to fill their spot on missed days. So, please, give us five. That being said, we know that things happen. If your kid does miss a day, we’ll still refund it automatically—COVID may impact flexibility, but it won’t impact what is fair.
Once you register, we’ll reach out to let you sign up for what weeks you want to attend and provide group requests for your child’s friends. If your kid is flying solo, we’ll be sure to place them in a group with others their age in the hopes of building new friendships. We will do our absolute best to accommodate all group requests.
Food is a big deal for us. So is having camp be an all-inclusive experience. We plan to offer lunch and snacks; we just need to do so in a manner that fits with safety guidelines and the logistics of our new normal. While we may add options later, we know that we can deliver on campers’ favorite item—pizza! Hot from ovens and into sealed boxes, we can get this item into kids’ hands without worry. You can, of course, choose to pack something instead or as a supplement, but pizza will be there. We will also offer an array of snacks for kids to nosh on throughout the day. All snacks will arrive to each stable group in closed packages. We will announce the specific line up in the following weeks, but rest assured, tummies will be full.
