Kids & Teen Cooking Camps
What a great opportunity for kids this summer!
Does your child refer to extra virgin olive oil as E.V.O.O and do they HAVE to be home to watch the latest episode of “Chopped” ? If so, you may have a budding chef or cheffette on your hands! If your child loves to help you prepare dinner in the kitchen or is advanced enough to cook an entire meal, please fuel that passion by sending them to summer cooking camp at The Kitchen Workshop! Our summer programs will introduce your child to many aspects of the culinary and baking worlds. Along with knife skills, nutrition, kitchen sanitation and safety, your child will spend a week cooking dishes “hands-on.”
Why send your child to The Kitchen Workshop Summer Cooking Camp?
- The fee camp includes all supplies and food costs.
- Max 10 campers per weekly session.
- Personal hands-on instruction only. NO Demonstrations!
- A friendly and casual, adult supervised environment.

Baking is not just for girls, thank you! When baking from “scratch”, math and basic science play a very big and important role in the recipe. Yes, pun intended! So along with creating delicious baked goods, your child will also be reinforcing their knowledge of fractions, measurement and basic science without them even realizing it. From cookies, cupcakes and pies to pizzas and bread, a week spent at camp is sure to be a fun and educational time for your future baker. If they’re that kid that must slap flour on their cheeks when baking with you, then this is definitely the place for them to spend a week!
