Summer Cooking Camps

32.jpgWhat We Do
Young people have fun while learning the basics in how to make a delicious homemade meal: planning the menu, making the shopping list, cooking, eating and cleaning up. We may occasionally visit a farmers market, a farm, bakery or a restaurant kitchen, depending on the interests of the group.

A maximum of eight young people enjoy lunching on a complete meal that we prepare each day, and campers go home at the end of the week with a cookbook of all the recipes.

  1. This is an amazing opportunity for little folks. My daughter is always in the kitchen with me and she’s almost 7. She loves learning to cook. Wish the 6-9 group was in August after summer school is over as I’ve already signed up my minions for summer school! Will keep checking back for another future opportunity!

    1. Hi Tiona, I’ve just posted the 2017 summer schedule. Hope your daughter will have an opportunity to cook with us this year! –Chef Sheila

  2. Do you offer a cooking camp for kids with food allergies?

    1. Hi Michaela, we can accommodate most, but not all, food allergies in our regular camps. For example, if a camper is allergic to peanuts, we won’t cook with any peanut-related products. If your child has multiple food allergies and you know of other children or young people with the same allergies, we could plan a Saturday class or camp especially for them. My fourteen years of experience as a registered nurse helps me share with young people how to create tasty menu plans that avoid foods that are a danger to their health. Write me at to discuss your child’s allergies. Hope we can make cooking camp work out!
