In-Kitchen & Online Camps

When school is closed, we are open!

We are thrilled to offer both small group in-kitchen camps and online camps so that you can join us wherever you are most comfortable! Our cooking camps are the perfect recipe for gaining kitchen confidence, learning essential cooking skills, making new friends and lots of smiles!

In-Kitchen Camps

Small Group Camps

Highlight of your week creating three recipes each day — always savory & sweet! Small group 3-hour camps to provide a hands-on experience for budding chefs ages 4-13 to whip up batches of fun while learning new things! Younger chefs focus on the basics along with kitchen games while older campers tackle advanced techniques and culinary challenges. You don’t want to miss it!

Counselors-in-Training

CITs assist our morning camp in addition to participating in the afternoon camp with their peers. We are only able to offer a limited number of CIT positions each week so apply early if you want to participate in this opportunity! CITs enjoy a 20% discount on the morning camp with full-price registration in our afternoon camp.

Online Camps

From our Kitchen to Yours

Highlight of your week creating two recipes each day! Live 2-hour daily camp experience is designed for ages 6-15 to gather together from the comforts of home as we have fun together in the Kitchen. Limited-size live classes full of excitement and connection. All recipes are vegetarian and many can be adjusted to be gluten-free, dairy-free or egg-free! #TBKatHome

COVID Safe

We continue to stay safe in the kitchen with lots of hand washing and wearing masks (with the exception of savoring). Temperatures are taken before entering the kitchen at all children’s events; anyone with a temp of 100.4 will be sent home. Our plan of action will be updated as needed to accommodate necessary policy and procedural changes. Updated: 6/1/21.

FAQ for Online Camp

Can I join the online class from anywhere?

Yes! For the first time ever with the launch of our online camps, you can join us from anywhere. All camp times are in Eastern Standard so take that into account when registering from another time zone.

What can I expect in a virtual online camp?

Join us for our robust online version of our signature summer cooking camps using LIVE, interactive video lessons. We’ll be sharing the same amazing culinary entertainment you’d get if you were in our Kitchen, except you can be in your jammies (no judgement here). You will access our class via a Zoom link provided. The chef will welcome you into our online kitchen classroom, introduce the recipes of the day along with the ingredients and tools that we will use and guide you (and the rest of our class) step-by-step through the recipes. We’ll answer questions along the way, help your children to clean as we go and promote an engaging and connected environment for all. All experience levels welcome. Get ready for some kitchen fun – this will be the highlight of your child’s week!

Do I participate with my child?

Participation is for children with an adult present to chaperone and assist as needed. Siblings are welcome to cook together with sibling registration. Our goal is for the kids to do as much of the cooking as they can. Depending on the day we will be using knives, peelers, zesters/graters and the oven throughout our series so based on your child’s age and kitchen comfort, you will be their sous-chef as needed. Otherwise, we want parents to sit back and enjoy!

How do I sign up?

We are running camps every week from June 21 to August 20. We have four unique weekly themes, each week featuring all different recipes. Please select the week or weeks that works best for you in our Upcoming Schedule and register by clicking “BOOK NOW”.

How long are the classes?

Each virtual camp is approximately 2 hours long. Registration is by the week.

How much do the classes cost?

Each camp is $250 per household.

What if I don't have one of the ingredients or want to make a dietary substitution to the recipe?

All of our camp recipes are vegetarian. Each recipe is customizable based on the ingredients you can find and your family’s dietary preferences. If you have specific questions about allergy or other substitution requests, you can ask the chef during the class or email us before and we’ll be happy to help you.

Where can I find the ingredient list?

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a shopping list for the week along with the recipes so that you can purchase what you need to actively participate. Most ingredients are pantry staples and/or readily available in most grocery stores. You do not have to pre-cut, clean, or cook any ingredients, we will do that all in class together! We’ll also email you the list of kitchen equipment to have on hand — we promise, we’ll keep it basic.

What can I do to be prepared for class?

We know parents need a break so we’ve create a special parents “How To” video with five tips on how to make our online experience as easy as possible for parents. This video will be emailed to you as soon as you register.

We recommend getting organized by preparing your ingredients and gathering your cooking utensils needed for our recipes. This will allow your child to easily access all necessary ingredients and materials during the class to best cook along with our chef. Being prepared will result in a more enjoyable experience!

What technology do I need to access the class?

You will need to download the free Zoom app onto your desktop, tablet or phone before the class. You will receive a separate email that includes a Zoom link to our online class the day before the class start time. We recommend joining from a laptop to see better but tablets or mobile devices work just fine as well.
