Truffles and Trifles
Cooking Campers obtain the life skills needed to become successful adults and educates the whole child. There is more to learning than test taking and achieving good grades.
Cooking Camp allows kids to unplug from technology. Today’s children spend more than 7.5 hours a day engaged with technology, which often takes the place of vital hands-on activities.
At Cooking Camp, there’s plenty of time for LEARNING ABOUT FOOD AND COOKING BUT IT IS DONE IN A FUN, JOYFUL WAY, which helps children with social and emotional development. Balancing school schedules, homework, and extracurricular activities doesn’t leave much room for play. We believe that teaching kids how to have fun in the kitchen is something that will be with them their whole lives.
Children can reinvent themselves at camp. Students often attend school year after year with the same peers, which can lead to labeling and being “stuck” with a particular perception. We often see kids go from being a picky eater to someone willing to try new foods.
Cooing Camp promotes independence. When children go to cooking camp, they are given the opportunity to grow more independent. We like to give them responsibility – learning about equipment, pots and pans. How to handle hot food dishes under careful supervision, how to chop with real knives, learning about math and science but in a way that doesn’t seem difficult at all.
Each day of Camp will have a different theme…French, Italian, Asian, Mexican and finishing with good ole’ USA.
