Notes for all Kids Kitchen Camps:

  • Campers will swim each day and need to pack a swimsuit and towel. Campers need to pack a lunch and water bottle. Closed toed shoes are a must in the kitchen.
  • If your camper has a dietary restriction, please contact the office to discuss further. Please note not all dietary needs can be met due to a shared cooking space and ingredients; cross contamination is likely.
  • During downtime, while recipes are in the oven, campers will experience a mixture of activities from swimming, playground time, trivia games, and more!
  • Recipes are different each week, so there is always something new to learn!
