Drop-in camps

Responding to the needs of busy parents whose work, life and vacation schedules don’t align with the typical five-day workweek (or camp session), these programs offer distinctly new kinds of schedules, options and, best of all, variety!

Steve and Kate’s Camp (Seattle, Totem Lake, Everett)

At Steve and Kate’s Camps, kids can design their own day by choosing from a wide variety of activities. Buy as many day passes as you need, use them when you want (just show up!) and get a refund for any passes that go unused. Passes include a full day (8 a.m.–6 p.m.) of fun, lunch and snacks.

Dates: June 20–Aug. 26

Ages: 4–12

Cost: $109/day

High Trek Adventures (Everett)

Youth day camp activities may include access to the high ropes course and zip lines, laser tag, miniature golf, archery and other action-packed adventures. Campers will learn to work as a team to improve communication and build problem-solving skills.

Dates: June 20–Aug. 8

Ages: 7–15

Cost/day: $100–$130 (one-day camp), $250–$300 (three-day camp)

Arena Sports (Magnuson Park, SoDo, Issaquah, Redmond, Mill Creek)
