​Cooking Camps​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen offers cooking camps for kids and teens. Our camps are a series of hands-on cooking classes that are engaging from start to finish.

Our Chef Instructors and Professional Home Economists will teach the basics of food preparation, kitchen safety and cooking techniques to create tasty dishes from scratch.

Participants will enjoy the dishes they make for lunch and will be able to take extras and recipe packages home to share with their families at the end of each class. Every camp is sure to reveal your child’s inner chef.

Throughout the week campers will learn all about gardening first-hand by planting, sprouting and growing their own sunflower plant. Our chef instructors will walk them through how to select fresh, local ingredients as they create tasty salads, mouth-watering baked goods, healthy breakfast options and we even have a day set aside for Ukrainian classics like borscht! Our campers’ knowledge will be put to the test when we wrap up the week with a trip to two local working farms. They’ll get to experience a day on the farm, digging up their own ingredients to bring back and use in their chicken pot pies.
