Frequently Asked Questions

What do your cooking camps cost?

Click on a camp in the schedule above to view the price and complete details. Early drop-off and late pick-up are available for an additional fee.

Can I register by the day?

Camp registration is available by the week or the day(s). Each week features a unique theme with new recipes, so you can join us for one week, a few weeks or a few days. Your child will not be behind if they join for a single/few days in a given week. Select camps may only be offered with full-week registration, and this will be noted on the booking page.

What recipes will my child make?

Campers typically make 3 to 4 recipes a day, both savory and sweet, created entirely from scratch. The camp’s description on our booking page offers a “taste” of some of the recipes we’ll be making. We reserve the right to make menu changes due to food availability and/or food allergies. Campers will be encouraged to taste everything created during camp with extras to bring home. Breakfast and lunch are always recommended before/after camp as everyone’s palates are different.

Do you offer a full-day option?

All of our camps are designed as half-day (3-hour) experiences. Children age 10+ who love helping younger kids in the kitchen are invited to apply to our Counselor-in-Training Program for a full-day experience from 8:50am-4:00pm. Learn more.

Can you accommodate my allergy or dietary restriction?

Our Kitchen is nut-free. We do our best to offer a wide variety of menus that cater to different dietary needs and restrictions from vegetarian to vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and/or egg-free. If you’ve selected an allergy-free menu, it is important to note that while the recipes are free of those ingredients, we are not an allergy-free facility. Recipes are cooked at group tables, and for your safety individual adjustments cannot be made. Please reach out with any questions before attending.

What are your arrival and pick-up policies?

Our doors open 10 minutes prior to the start of the camp day for check-in. Parents must enter our Kitchen to note who will be picking up and complete our participation waiver. We’ll start promptly, so be sure to arrive on-time to ensure that you are able to get the full experience from start to finish!

Pick-up is promptly at the end of our camp day so please be on time. If you are late for pick-up, your child will automatically be enrolled in our late pick-up program which runs until 30-minutes after the session end-time, and charged the daily rate. If your child is able to leave on their own, we will need written permission which you can provide at drop-off or via email in advance of the first day of camp.

How can I sign up for early drop-off and/or late pick-up?

You may select to add-on early drop-off (8:30am) or late pick-up (12:30pm) for our morning camp, or late pick-up (4:30pm) to our afternoon camp. This additional time is supervised, and light activities are provided including coloring sheets and word searches while our crew prepares for or cleans-up from a great day!

My children are in two different age groups, can they come together?

We divide our camps into age groups in order to keep the instruction engaging and age-appropriate. Older children are welcome to join siblings in a younger camp but younger children may not join siblings in an older camp.

What if my child would like to sit with friends?

If your child wants to sit with a friend(s) who signed up for the same camp, please let our office know in advance so we can plan accordingly and we will do our best to accommodate your preferences. When you arrive, we may already have selected table assignments based on the theme of the day, ages and/or skill level. Siblings will be sat together unless otherwise requested. We are unable to accommodate seating requests for late arrivals once kids are already settled.

Do you offer sibling discount?

We do not offer a sibling discount.

What should my child wear/bring?

Bring a water bottle labeled with your child’s first and last name. We prefer close-toed shoes and long hair pulled back in our Kitchen. We will have aprons for you to wear, so just bring your smiling face and a willingness to delve into all things tasty!

How can I reschedule or cancel my class?

All sales are final and non-refundable. You can reschedule your booking up to 5 days prior to the start time of your class by clicking the “Change booking” link included below your listed class date and time in the box above. If you are unable to rebook yourself, you’ve missed your rebooking window. Do your best to make it to class or send a friend in your place, as we do not offer rescheduling within 5 days of the class. Taste Buds Kitchen will not be held responsible for unforeseen circumstances including schedule conflicts, illnesses, last-minute emergencies, and any other circumstance. For our complete cancellation policy, head to the bottom of this page.

Where do I sign my waiver?

You can complete our online waiver by clicking the link in your confirmation email. Guest participation in our Kitchen is subject to the execution of our Waiver. This Waiver must be signed by a parent for all minors (no nannies/sitters, grandparents, carpooling parents, etc). Any guests without a Waiver will not be able to participate. As the booking client, we will rely on you to clearly communicate this to your guests. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
