Full Day Camps

Steve & Kate’s Camp 

Steve &Kate’s camp was named, “Best Summer Camp,” by South Sound magazine readers.

Founded in 1980, Steve and Kate’s Camp conforms to kids and families, not the other way around. Instead of a rigid structure, we give our campers choice and gentle guidance. There are a gazillion ways for kids to design a day at camp. One camper might dive into breadmaking and animation while another flies down a water slide and scores a goal in our inflatable soccer stadium. It’s up to them!

Parents love the curbside drop-off, long camp hours, and flexible payment plans. You can buy any number of Day Passes, use them whenever you want, and get an automatic refund for unused passes. You don’t even need to tell them you’re coming. Lunch, snacks, and all materials included. Grades Pre-K through 7th. Register at 206 673 3543 or head here.
