  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Boerum Hill How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 5 Review: My son liked the camp. He did not reveal much, but the fact that he was only complaining about the commute (from the Gowanus) means that he had fun. The schedule was up and they get gym time and outdoor time daily. They use some electronics, like tablets. The kids get to choose lunch daily. As a working mom, I loved the camp and its flexibility. You can send your child for one day or five days or anything in between. Hours are from 8-6, I was late a few times and there was no issue. The camp is located in the Montessori school building and the kids stay exclusively at on the building grounds - no day trips, no swimming etc. This may be a dealbreaker for some, but I like this set-up a lot. I don’t have to worry that my kid gets lost somewhere, gets into an accident etc. Also, my kid likes being cool and spending a lot of time indoors with AC works just fine for him! What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I would like the staff to be more personal with both kids and adults. I wish that we would get a warmer welcome and good-bye.
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Brooklyn Montessori How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 11 and 8 Review: Things I loved: the flexibility of being able to decide which days I sent them to camp and which to stay home. The ability to pre-pay the number of days I bought but could get reimbursed if I didn't use them. I was concerned my 11yr old would be the oldest but there were plenty of kids his age. The sign in process and lunch selection was very easy and security felt good. My kids had an excellent time although I didn't get much feedback from them what they did I did see photos posted which showed a variety of activities. The camp hours were 8 - 6pm which is very useful for working parents. It works out to be about $120 per kid per day. The only things I feel were missing were field trips and swimming. The kids choose their activities which makes me suspect they didn't partake in a wider variety of things.
  • Bright Horizons: Brooklyn Robot Foundry and Steve and Kate's camp

    We used Steve and Kate's camp last summer in cobble hill, and are using it now in the East Village location. It's been such a great resource for school break camps without breaking the budget!

    Oh, and Bright Horizons also works for Steve and Kate's Camp in Cobble Hill for summer break- https://steveandkatescamp.com/brooklyn-cobble-hill/ (April break just has the East Village and 96th street locations), and that has been fun too.

    Check out Steve & Kate’s camp. Looks like they will open in July. Our daughter did not go to this location but she did go to the one in Lower Manhattan a couple years ago and loved it. https://steveandkatescamp.com/brooklyn-cobble-hill/
  • Experience with Steve and Kate Camp ?

    My son is an indoor camp kind of child and he loved Steve and Kate"s Camp when there was a different location 2 years ago. He loved the freedom of being able to choose his activity whenever he wanted, being able to try different things and being able to cook and film movies on the i-pad. And of course having pizza for lunch. (There are always choices for lunch, but he picked pizza every time.) I loved not having to sign him up for specific dates and being able to drop him off for 1 day or 2 days a week to get errands done and not paying extra for long days 8-6. The only drawback with this set-up was that it did not lead to his getting to know other kids. That may be different if you go for 5 days in a row though. A couple of times, I coordinated with a friend of his and the 2 kids went together. My son did not mind not having friends there and still ranks it as one of his favorite camps.
  • Experience with Steve and Kate Camp ?

    Yes, the camp is great and flexibility they offer is definitely a big plus. They are opening a Brooklyn location this summer, but Manhattan locations (3 I believe) have been open for a long time. You can buy several passes and use them any time you need. If you don’t use all passes, they will issue a refund. My son attended lower Manhattan location last summer and he liked it. If you have Bright Horizons benefits from work, BH covers this camp as well.
  • 2019 Summer Camp Review

    Age: 4 Review: This camp is a great option for people who need a one-off option-- either a day or a week of coverage. They are an option through Bright Horizons, there is great variety in terms of what is offered, food is included, and if your child is self-directed they will have a good day. My son was sweaty and happy and exhausted at the end of the day. I would have liked this camp as a child, because you have the option to try out lots of activities, and all the counselors seemed friendly. What would you change? I don't.... really know what my kid did all day (except for a couple of pictures), and I would have loved to know slightly more, but that's just because I'm nosy.
  • Steve and Kate Camp?

    my son attended the lower Manhattan location last summer and he loved it. They offer a variety of activities you can choose to participate in. The biggest benefit is that they offer flexibility and you can choose to come any day after you purchase a day pass. For anyone who has Bright Horizons benefits, Bright Horizons now covers this camp as well.

    Our boys (6 and 8) went to the Manhattan location for two previous summers and LOVED it. They’ve gone to park Slope day camp, Beansprouts, King’s, etc. and will only go back to s and k. We plan to send them to the Brooklyn location this summer.
  • Re: Iso summer camp advice

    if you're willing to go to Manhattan or Williamsburg, There is an amazing camp there called Steve and Kate's https://steveandkatescamp.com . It's almost too good to be true but it is. It's very family friendly with their flexibility. - They charge by the day. The day goes to 6:30 if you want but you can drop off and/or pick up your kid whenever. You don't have to let them know when you're going to use your days. You have the option to pay as you go but you can also buy a package. If you don't use all the days, they actually refund you the money. It was started in Silicon Valley. Their whole premise is to offer flexibility for families since most camps don't offer that flexibility. I don't know how they make money but I guess they have enough people who are interested in this sort of thing. -Child led but structured. Lots of activity choices including coding. -They learn to bake bread. -The counselors are amazing. Mostly college students or college grads. -They provide lunch. -My son was so happy. We do nature place day camp in July and early August and then we do Steve and Kate's for the rest of the summer.
  • Re: Iso summer camp advice

    I second the recommendation for Steve and Kate's camp! My daughters (now 7 and 9) attended on and off last summer and we all loved it -- between the flexibility, the activities and the great staff, it was well worth the trip to manhattan and they will be attending again on and off this summer.
  • Review from 2015 Summer Camp Survey

    Age of Child: 5 Likes: I was looking for a camp for a couple of weeks in August, and I was having trouble finding a place where my kids, ages 5 and 9 could go together and would both be happy. Steve and Kate's really worked out well. It's not a traditional camp program -- kids have free rein of the place and can do any activity they want at any time -- dance, baking, design, coding, music, animation -- or they can just hang out, play inside or out, read, etc. Plus there's occasional fun things like all-camp game shows and Friday Pie Day (which means every Friday they get to throw whip cream pies at each other and then go in the sprinkler). Each day is completely kid-led and individualized. I'm not sure if it would have worked for the full summer (depends on the kid), but my kids had a blast for 2 weeks. Extra bonus: you can pre-purchase however many days you think you'll need and then just show up whenever you need camp (no need to schedule in advance), and if you buy days you don't use you can get your money back at the end of the summer. What would you change? Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend
