In this combination culinary/pastry arts camp designed specifically for children ages 3-7, we will be featuring recipes based on beloved books. Dragons Love Tacos, Cupcake, I want to be a Chef, and many more selections that we use throughout the year in our Cook with a Book classes for kids, will be the focus of the camp.
Campers will learn and practice new techniques while working at their own pace, and marching to the beat of their own drum. We hope to make new friends, create some cool art and cook up some amazing creations.
This is the perfect camp for little people who are curious about being in the kitchen, or those who already help out at home!
In camp each day we will focus on a different culinary technique, followed by a little practice at baking or making doughs. Our camp will allow your child’s kitchen confidence to grow, all while having fun trying something new.
Some items from our menu: muffins, cookies, pasta, pizza, soups, pretzels, bagels, from scratch tacos and much more!
THIS CAMP DOES NOT MEET ON JULY 4TH.
PRESCHOOL CAMPS ARE FROM 9 am - 1:30 pm Monday through Friday
What To Expect: Great cooking is about more than recipes—it's about techniques. In our classes your kids will work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors. We also have Montessori trained preschool educators who moonlight as chefs, and they will be the lead instructors for all our preschool camps this summer!
