Kids Cooking Camp

Cooking camp takes place Tuesday through Thursday for 3 hours. Each camper comes home with a ready-to-cook dinner entrée and dessert for 5 people each night! Follow simple cooking directions and dinner is done! Bonus: All entrees are freezable.

Each day features different projects/ and recipes. Topics covered include:

The campers will make and enjoy a snack and prepare a dinner entrée (that serves 5) and a sweet treat to bring home, often a side dish too.

At the end of each session, all campers take home a cookbook. There are 2 sets of recipes each summer!

Session Requirements

Kids must be between ages 7 - 11 to participate.

Allergies

Note: No peanut, tree nut, or shellfish ingredients will be used in cooking projects. Gluten and dairy will be used in projects.

Entree Menu 

Every day can have a vegetarian entree option by request.

We recommend that you add a salad at home to round out the entree, side and dessert that come home each night!

Kids Baking Camp

Think cookies, crisps, crumbles, and more! The kids will be mixing up a storm.

Each day the campers will get to sample their projects and make a snack. They will also bring home either fully baked items or the batters, doughs, and more to bake or freeze. Then you and the kids can bake their creations together at home!

Sample projects may include:

All recipes will be coming home in a cookbook.

Allergies

No tree nuts are used but peanut butter may be used in 1 baking project (a non-peanut substitute can be used). Gluten and dairy ingredients are used in projects so campers with those food allergies are regrettably discouraged from attending for their safety.

Our Camp Philosophy and What to Expect:

We aspire to inspire kids to have an increased interest in food and cooking or baking while in a safe, fun, and confidence-building environment. We teach basic techniques and have kids do all measuring, mixing and they create their final products.

Some ingredients may be prepped in advance for them to use in their projects (i.e. pre-diced onions or a pre-made sauce). They may use items like a pizza cutter for slicing or a plastic knife for frosting a cupcake.

What's almost certain is that the campers will have fun and leave with a huge pile of food that they created along with big proud smiles on their faces!

If you are looking for an experience where your child learns "Cordon Bleu" techniques, masters formal knife skills, or gets "standing at the stove" experience, then we are not the camp for you.

Pricing

$259 per Camper (registration mid-April onward). Children Ages 7-11.

Sibling Discount

If siblings attend the same session, we will give you $10 off for your 2nd or 3rd family member. The $10 will be refunded prior to the start of camp.
