Steve & Kate's Portland Summer Day Camp!
Steve & Kate's Camp - Portland
At Camp, kids take chances and take charge, shaping their day, their way. More choices and fewer expectations creates more possibilities, more self-trust and less self-doubt. Our adaptability works to our advantage. Right now we can’t quite operate as usual, but we’ve made the most of mandates and modifications so that kids can make moves (or movies, or magic monster mittens) that matter to them. After registration, but before attending, campers select and sign up for an interest-based, pod-like group, called Squads. At Camp, they’ll gather with their fellow enthusiasts in indoor or outdoor spaces, to immerse themselves in activities or pursue projects with an emphasis that speaks to their tastes (or, in Sampler Squads, a little bit of everything!). Each Squad will have related go-to supplies and equipment, as well as general goodies for games and artistic freestyling.
