OVERVIEW: Choose from 3 exciting cooking camps:
June - Baking Bonanza

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. Age ranges are suggested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

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: Sheet pan french toast, baked eggs, sweet potato home fries, apple & pear sauce.
What’s for Lunch: Taco, burrito, and tostado bar with all the fixings!
Snack Time: No-bake cereal bars with homemade peanut butter, smoothies, popsicles, and a healthy berry crumble.
