Cooking Round the World Summer Camps 2018


Cooking Round the World is the juncture where cultural exploration meets culinary arts!

Each camp day we cook and eat 4 to 8 recipes, read a folktale, play an international/national game, observe a cooking demonstration, and learn to think critically about the foods we just cooked.

In the afternoon we see a slide presentation, play a trivia game, have outside recess time, and play our version of the TV show "Chopped" or bake desserts.

The program is completely hands-on; everyone peels or chops or dices or minces. We believe in cooking with whole foods and having the children do the prep work themselves.

Most weeks the focus is exploring cultures and food from around the world. Other weeks have a Specialty Camp. Click here for a description of each of our programs.

Campers come away with respect for difference, a broadened pallet, and a desire to become a citizen of the world!  Educational! Delicious! Fun!

 

Who can attend a cooking camp?
Cooking Camp is for boys and girls ages 6 to 13.

How much does a cooking camp cost?
Costs vary and are listed on page 2 of the individual camp registration pages. No individual days of camp are offered.
