Event/Activity Description

Encourage your child’s exploration in the kitchen with a culinary experience they will never forget. We have lined up three weeks of fun cooking activities including Food Science and Fermentation, The Art of Baking, and Meals from Around the World! For ages 6-12! All camps run M-F 8:30am – 4pm July 8th-26th.
Our camps are for the curious junior scientists, enthusiastic bakers and adventurous children. The fermentation/food science camp will explore the genetics of taste and changes in taste perception. Junior cooks will produce yogurt and fermented creations. The baking camp will explore the importance of baking ingredients and demonstrate ingredient relevance. Junior cooks will bake bread, crackers, cupcakes and learn about allergen alternatives. The around the world camp will explore and discuss different meals from around the world.
