We  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.
