​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 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 recipes home to share with their families at the end of each class. The camp is sure to reveal your child’s inner chef.
Location: All classes are held at the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen Learning Centre in Calgary, 909 -11 Avenue S.W.
To register, call 403-245-7630.

In this special day camp, participants will spend the morning at two nearby working farms where they will take a tour, learn about growing potatoes and carrots, then help dig up veggies from the soil.
In the afternoon, students will work with our chef instructors to turn their freshly harvested crop into dishes they can trace from farm to table.

 In their words ...


​What parents have to say about our Kids Cooking Camps. 

Expecting our daughter to make muffins and pizzas, etc., we were pleasantly surprised when she came home with more “adult fare.” Not one for eating spinach nor chickpeas, she said her favourite dish was the Moroccan chickpea soup. Today we are going to make the tortillas. Fantastic course for 9-year-olds (or anyone!). She definitely wants to attend again next year. Cheers to you for helping a 9-year-old not only learn to cook, but enjoy the taste of healthy food.













My daughter loved learning within ATCO’s state-of-the-art kitchen space with experienced and enthusiastic chefs. She still shares nuggets of knowledge about kitchen utensil skills, nutritional facts, and how food is produced. Sincere thanks to everyone at ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen for giving my kid such a fantastic learning experience and instilling an enthusiasm about making HEALTHY & DELICIOUS food!
