Summer Cooking Camp 2020 – For Ages 5 to 13

June 15 - August 21

Come Hungry, Leave Happy!

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 instill confidence in the kitchen. Students will learn key kitchen skills such as chopping, cooking, mixing and baking 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 menus and be empowered to make better decisions regarding food choices.

So how do our camps work? From Monday through Thursday of each week, kids will prepare 3 to 4 dishes per day and vote for their favorite menu items for the week. On Friday, ie, last day of camp for the week, we will host a friendly Iron Chef Competition. With minimal help and supervision, kids will team up to prep, read and follow recipes and re-create their favorite dishes. Finally, they will receive their Certificate of Completion.

[Please Note : Ticket sales will begin on March, 1 2020. Weekly themes and menus are subject to change and will be finalized shortly.]
