Culinary Young Chefs New this year!

Ages 9–12

This week-long program is for aspiring young chefs who want to get their hands messy and learn to cook. Based on experimentation and play, Campers will build their cooking skills while discovering that the kitchen is a wonderful place to take risks and that there is no “correct” way to make food.

Campers will learn to experiment in the kitchen and discover how to enjoy food in all its forms through food lessons inspired by science, math, and the world around us.
