Kids Cook!™ Summer 2020 Camp Schedule

COVID-19 Update – July 5, 2020

In order to keep everyone safe we will be offering a combination of small classes in July.  Both in-person and virtual classes will be available, hopefully meeting different needs for different families.  Looking forward to cooking with your kids again soon.  In the meantime, be well.   

Faith Anaya, Owner

 

Kids Cook! classes are held year-round. September through May we offer after-school and weekend classes. Our week-long summer camps are in June and July. We are closed the first two weeks in August and the last two weeks in December.

Note: Our small classes mean that everyone cooks! All our classes are totally hands-on. Plus, we serve fresh fruit and milk or water with all Kids Cook! menus.

This is not watching someone else do it – this is intensive hands-on training in a small group setting.  Students will have the opportunity to learn the skills they need – peeling, chopping, measuring, etc. – to be able to cook nutritious meals at home from scratch. Additionally, students will learn how to properly wash food items in order to avoid illness from improper food preparation.  These classes are entirely hands-on, and you get to eat everything you make!  Kids in the in-person camp will take home samples for families to share.  Includes menus, grocery lists and recipes.
