When school is closed, we're open! We offer half-day cooking camps on every school holiday and all summer long.

Taste Buds Kitchen cooking camps are the perfect recipe for gaining kitchen confidence, learning essential cooking skills and making new friends. Kids work together as table teams to create several recipes all from scratch while whipping up batches of fun. Younger chefs focus on the fundamentals of measuring, mixing, and working safely in the kitchen with short breaks for stories and kitchen games. Tweens & teens hone in on more advanced cooking and baking techniques, recipe prep work, sanitation and knife skills with fun culinary challenges.
Summer camps run from June 6-August 19, 2022 with options for ages 4-8 (9am-12pm) or ages 9-13 (1-4pm). Ages 10+ can apply to be a CIT for a full-day experience (limited spots available). Each week is a new culinary adventure that explores a new theme and unique menu, creating two to three recipes each day - both savory and sweet. Camp weeks sell out fast. Register today!
