Lil’ Chef School Summer Cooking Camps 2022

Beat the Heat in their Cool Kitchen!

Whether your child likes to bake, create, roast, sauté, fry, or just blend, they have a camp for all interests. Camps are organized into three age groups so all chefs team up with their peers. Group ages are as follows: Tiny Chefs ages 4-6, Lil’ Chefs ages, 7-9, and Teen Chefs 10 and older.

All chefs will get to taste everything that they cook and all recipes will be sent home for later preparation. This is a hands-on cooking camp.

Lil’ Chef is a nut-free school and can accommodate only and all nut allergies. They cannot accommodate any other allergies and/or food restrictions. If children have gluten or dairy sensitivity they can participate but cannot taste.
