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!
Kids must be between ages 6.5 - 11 to participate. We can take up to 10 kids per session.
Note: No peanut, tree nut, or shellfish ingredients will be used in cooking projects. Gluten and dairy will be used in projects.
Every day will have a vegetarian entree option. Sample items from 2020 include:
After a phenomenal response in 2020, HomeCooked is doing Baking Camp again! Due to popular demand, we have scheduled 4 weeks of Baking Camp for 2021. Note: each week will use the same recipes.
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, too.
Kids must be between ages 8-11 to participate. We will take up to 10 kids per session. If kids under 8 want to attend a baking session they are permitted if they attend a cooking session prior to a baking session.
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.
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 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.
$239 per Camper: Children Ages 6.5-11 for cooking. Ages 8-11 for baking.
*If kids under 8 want to attend a baking session they are permitted if they attend a cooking session prior to baking.
If siblings attend the same session, we will give you $10 off for your 2nd or 3rd family member. The $10 will be refunded within 1 week of registration.
