Every day we make two to three recipes – always one savory and one sweet – while whipping up batches of fun. Younger chefs focus on the basics along with kitchen games while older campers tackle advanced techniques and culinary challenges. Professional Culinary Instructors and kid experts lead the way for a camp your budding chef won’t soon forget! A TBK apron is included for each full-week camper as well as flexible drop-off from 8:30-9:00am and late pick-up for a small fee. Children ages 10+ can apply to be a Counselor-In-Training for a full day experience, learn more. Ask about our Gluten-Free Fridays during select weeks of Summer camp!

Camp Experience

Budding chefs create several recipes all from scratch each day – always savory and sweet – while whipping up batches of fun. Limited capacity camps provide a safe and fun hands-on experience for ages 4-13. Younger chefs focus on the fundamentals of measuring, mixing, and working safely in the kitchen with short breaks for stories and kitchen games. Tweens hone in on more advanced cooking and baking techniques, recipe prep work, sanitation and knife skills with fun culinary challenges. Registration for summer 2021 is by the week only. Capacity is limited to maintain proper social distance and face coverings are required.
