Ages 8 – 12
Get ready to use farm fresh foods to cook up daily feasts! Build your own pizza from scratch, create your own salsa recipe, and collect fresh eggs from the chicken coop to cook a hearty farm breakfast. Campers harvest fresh ingredients from the farm and garden to gather the basic ingredients for each day’s culinary adventures.
Our goal in Cooking Camp is to have lots of fun while introducing campers to cooking and eating food right from the farm. All campers will harvest from the farm, chop, measure, mix, and prepare food, follow recipes, and try new foods over the course of their session. Campers rotate through cooking activities in small groups, so no camper spends all day cooking – we have lots of different activities to enjoy! Cooking campers will also visit the farm animals, play games, make new friends, go on hikes and adventures in the forest, build forts, and enjoy music and art projects. Cooking Camp is for all genders and our Cooking Camp staff reflect the diversity of our campers – good food is for everyone!
The Farm to Feast Cooking Camp classroom is a very popular spot on campus – staff and campers are always peeking in to see what smells so good! While our camps are primarily outside, cooking campers will spend more time inside than other groups when they are in the teaching kitchen (we also enjoy campfire cooking and use picnic tables outside for recipes that do not need indoor equipment!).
