The Ultimate Culinary Adventure Camp in SoCal
View all 15 dates
Welcome to the Summer of 2021, a year unlike any other!
Our own Food Network "Chopped" Champion Chef Eliza will be leading this special camp!
With this new, mini quarantine format, kids get to experience three fun-filled weeks of camp, each week varying greatly in menu and activities.
We will be hosting our first San Diego camp in a private, newly renovated single family home, all to ourselves, complete with an amazing backyard.
Week 1: Edible Art and 'Colors of the Rainbow' menu
In our first week of camp, we will be cooking and crafting every day from our 'Colors of the Rainbow' menu. Afternoons will be filled with art projects relating to food and sunny outdoor play, allowing kids to ease back into socializing. We will explore the power of our two hands with delicious, handmade recipes, from curry, to handpies, and much more, and kids will get to craft masterpieces using lots of fun mediums.
Week 2: Edible Adventure and 'Global goodies' menu
Did you know food could transport you to far away places? Learn to cook special delicacies from India, Korea, Brazil, Italy and beyond, and see how so many of our ingredients are universally used and enjoyed. In our wildly adventurous week, we will explore new cultures through delicious cooking! Designed to be a week of exploration, kids will get to craft and engage with foods from all over the globe! Social distancing and safety will definitely be encouraged, and we will make time to play outside!
Week 3: STEAM in the Kitchen and 'Baking Bliss' menu
In our final week of camp, we will encourage playing (and learning) with your food! Kids will learn the science of baking, create food-science experiments all on their own, and even have a costume party on the last day of camp! All things baked will make a tasty appearance in our menu, and we will celebrate all the little chefs have achieved. A video montage will be crafted to allow parents a glimpse of their little chefs' work.
