Cooking Camp for Kids

It is official!  I am beginning my cooking classes with a summer camp for children.

I have had a lot of positive feedback and it will be a lot of fun.  Read all about it here!


This class consists of 4 mornings from 8:30 – noon, Monday to Thursday.  There will be a maximum of 6 children in the class.  The first day will be totally planned by myself but in this first day we will, as a group, plan the ‘menu’ for the remaining three days.   The children will have input into what kinds of things they would like to cook.

My idea is that we will make a nutritious breakfast when they arrive and then work on a fun and interesting yet nutritious lunch.  I have a degree in home economics and education, have my Food Safe certificate and love cooking.  My goal is to have as many people making good food at home with local ingredients, as possible.

In addition to learning some new cooking skills, I will teach the children how to properly set a table and will touch on table etiquette, food safety, and nutrition. 

I have a brand new kitchen with wonderful appliances.  The children will be expected to do clean-up but the bulk of the dishes will be put in the dishwasher.  As with any cooking class, it is mainly about the food and food preparation.  For children ages 8 - 12 years.

Dates for the classes:           July 25 – 28 and August 8 – 11
Cost:                                    $140 per child each session
Optional add on:                  $20 + cost of fruit for a field trip to a U-Pick on the following Saturday or Sunday to pick fruits in season.  No need to sign up in advance for this.   It can be a last minute decision.  We will probably go to Treasure Valley Farms near Cadillac.

  2. Vegetarian recipes can make a good healthy recipes for your kids. Vegetarian healthy recipes and vegetarian healthy cooking are NOT BLAND, nor is it BORING! Well, you can never try hard to get an important point across. vegetarian healthy recipes and cooking, in lots of people’s minds, are boring and tasteless. Nothing is further from the truth – vegetarian healthy recipes are not only healthy for you, they also taste scrumptious and fantastic. learn more:

  3. If my daughter were still young I would love to send her off to cooking camp for a few days! This does sound like so much fun and I know the kids will enjoy having a say in what they are cooking. Good for you!

  5. There's a thing in the NYT today about what they are eating in the schools these days and how they are changing their attitudes and loving salad bars.
    I bet you will turn a few attitudes with your classes and have fun doing it... great news, Sarah.

  10. What a fantastic idea. I could imagine my daughter really enjoying that when she was younger (not so much now that she is a teen).
