Are your kids hungry for some fun this summer?
Our summer cooking camps are ideal for children ages 5 - 14 and run from 9am - 4pm. There are 10 weeklong camp sessions across 14 locations featuring a wide variety of culinary themes, such as pastry-focused sessions to learning about cuisines from around the world. Our camps are fully immersive, professional, hands-on, and fun, built to equip your child with invaluable cooking and life skills they will need to achieve success, in and out of the kitchen.
Our Program

We structure our camps like a professional culinary school. Camper recipe execution will be preceded by chef-led cooking demonstrations, ensuring all learning styles are accommodated.

Campers work in pairs to ensure each and every student gets hands-on practice.

✅ Cook from 3 - 6 recipes from scratch DAILY

✅ Morning recipes act as lunch items for campers while afternoon recipes are used as take-home products to share with the family!

✅ Breaks include outdoor fun with camp-style games and crafts, ensuring a balanced and enjoyable experience for your young chefs.

What’s Included
  • Professional Guidance
    Our Chef instructors are experienced and passionate culinary professionals, eager to share their knowledge with the younger generation of chefs and inspire young minds. They are also educators with experience working with youth.
  • Daily Lunch
    Throughout the cooking camp day, campers work through several recipes and prepare their own lunches. The food varies from day to day and includes delicious and nutritious hot meals that all our campers enjoy. Please note that our programs are peanut free and Allergy Aware.
  • Take-Home Treats
    At the end of each camp day, food will be sent home with campers in Tupperware containers. Tupperware containers are to be supplied by the families. Campers get to share their tasty creations with their family! Your children will be delighted to offer you a taste of all their hard work at cooking camp.
  • Uniform
    Every young chef needs the right attire to step into the kitchen confidently. Our cooking camp provides each camper with a professional chef's uniform, including a chef coat, an apron, a cut resistant glove and a baseball cap. These uniforms aren't just about looking the part; they instill a sense of pride and belonging in our budding chefs.
