Summer Camps 2018

Ready for another AMAZING summer of delightful and educational cooking camps for kids and teens?

Does your child or teen have an interest in cooking? This summer, we’re celebrating our 13th year of super summer cooking camps! Our camps are tons of fun for budding young cooks who are ready to get out and have a good time in the kitchen. Camps are available for teens, tweens, and kids, ages 8-17 (completed 2nd – 11th grade) running at a variety of times throughout the summer.

 

We focus on kitchen safety, learning to use kitchen equipment properly, and of course, how to make some great food!  We encourage participants to try everything we make and also have the kids lend a hand with clean up so that they learn good kitchen habits.  Each camp participant will receive a personalized binder loaded with the recipes used in camp to take home at the end of the week.

French Bistro Kids & Teens: Ooh-la-la! We’ll spend the week making crepes, chocolate éclairs, and more! Each day will be a lesson in basic French cooking techniques, and will excite your child to cook! The menus are fun and the food is awesome!  (Ages 8-11 & 12-17)

Iron Chef for Teens: One of our most popular and exciting camps for teens, we focus on building solid cooking skills and technique through knife skills, working at the stove, and basic baking. We’ll break into teams and finish our week for our semi-famous Iron Chef-style challenge, pitting great technique against the clock!  (Ages 12–17)

Advanced Techniques for Teens:  Does your teen love to cook, but want to improve their skills? Can they read a recipe, start to finish? Do they know how to measure correctly? If so, this is the camp you’ve been looking for! Supersized at 5 hours a day, your teen will learn techniques to enhance the knowledge they already have and make them superstars in the kitchen. We’ll be cooking and baking each day, and lunch will be served, along with a lunch break. (Ages 12-17)

Cupcake Wars Kids & Teens: Prepare for war…cupcake style! Each day we’ll be creating, baking, and decorating gorgeous cupcakes to enjoy and share. We’ll be teaching baking technique as well as how to work with pastry bags and different tips, and fondant too!  (Ages 8-11 & 12-17)

Passport Around the World for Kids:  Let’s dip a toe in international waters with our fantastically fun international-themed cooking camp! We’ll visit three countries over five days: Italy, Mexico, & France. From making our own homemade pasta to whipping up fresh salsa, and even crepes, your child will love creating and tasting new foods! (Ages 8-11)

Baking & Cake Decorating for Kids & Teens:  Our most popular cooking camp, this five-hour camp is going to include even more goodies this summer! Not only will each child bake and decorate a cake with fondant to take home on our last day, but also throughout the week we’ll be making cupcakes, pies, cookies, yeast dough, and more! We’ll also be working on cake decorating with buttercream using pastry bags and tips throughout the week. Lunch is included each day. (Ages 8-11 & 12-17)

Mini Camp – Cupcake Wars for Kids:  This is a three-day version of the week long Cupcake Wars Camp.  Lunch will be served each day in this Mini Camp. (Ages 8-11)
