Summer Kids Cooking Camp 2017

June 12, 2017 - August 18, 2017
  • This event has passed.

We’re cooking up delicious menus all summer long at our Summer Camp! Each week of camp will focus on a different theme and each day will be a new culinary adventure.

Our sessions are designed to teach kids how to have fun in the kitchen while still being educational. Students will learn kitchen skills such as chopping, cooking and mixing techniques.  They will use math and reading skills in learning how to read and mise en place a recipe. Students will make new friends while working as a team to complete the menu.

And most importantly, they will be empowered to make better decisions regarding food choices by exploring healthy foods and ingredients, and understanding the connection to their health.

Daily Schedule:

  • Morning camp, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, for ages 5-7 years old
  • Afternoon camp, 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm, for ages 8-12 years old

Included in Camp:

  • A folder with all materials you will go over throughout the week.
  • Your very own FlavorPot apron to take home and keep!
  • Recipe cards for every item that will be made.
  • Chef hats at the beginning of the week to wear and take home.
  • Certificate of Completion at end of each week.

Price: $225 per week. Due to limited capacity we will not be able to have options for individual day sessions.
