Summer Cooking Camps


OVERVIEW: Choose from 3 exciting cooking camps:

  1. Baking Bonanza

  2. Kitchen Bootcamp

  3. Farm Market Fresh!

A different camp is offered each month. Camps run 4 days, Monday thru Thursday.

SKILLS: The kids and teens do all of the work in these classes: measuring, mixing, chopping, whisking, kneading, and stirring on the stove, to name a few! We will practice some science, math, and even art along the way. 

FORMAT: These classes are all hands on. We will make several recipes as a group and enjoy our meal at the end of class. Take home recipes and any leftovers. Classes include 4 sessions. If you can’t make it one day, feel free to send a friend in your place! Age ranges are suggested. Email with questions.

LOCATION: We hope to be at our new location for Summer. Trust us - it’s easy to access from 235 on the near west side of Des Moines.

This is the perfect time of year for your kids to learn some self-sufficiency in the kitchen. Each day, we’ll focus on a different meal and teach your kids how to create their own food from scratch. They’ll have plenty of time to practice it too, before going back to school in the fall. If all goes according to plan, they’ll be making their own breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and even cooking your family dinner! Each day, we will have a different focus. Menus include:

  • Bring on Breakfast

  • What’s for Lunch?

  • Snack Time

  • One Pot Dinners


August 12-15 | 9:30-11:30AM ages 9-12

Our goal is to introduce your kids to a variety of Iowa’s summer bounty. We’ve seen how kids are more willing to try new foods in the company of others. We hope this week leads to increased requests for a wider range of farm fresh food. Each day, we will have a different focus. Menus include:

  • Farmers Market Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Souper Soups

  • Salads Galore (with Homemade Dressings)

  • Market Fresh Pizza Throwdown!
