Our signature cooking camps provide hands-on culinary experiences packed with excitement and kitchen adventures. Young chefs expand their palates, reinforce academic and social skills, and learn kitchen safety and culinary fundamentals…all while making new friends and enjoying great food!
What Makes Kitchen Kid Culinary Camps Unique:
- Weekly Farmers Market Challenge (Santa Monica / Hermosa Beach) or Mystery Basket Challenge (Beverly Hills / Pasadena / Redondo Beach): Kitchen Kids learn about seasonal ingredients and “farm to fork” eating. In the Farmers Market Challenge, young chefs head to the market in small groups led by a culinary coach to shop for the freshest produce available. In our Mystery Box Challenge, our culinary coaches lead a discussion and delicious tasting of in-season fruits and vegetables. Afterwards, in all camps, chefs enjoy a secret ingredient cook-off!
- Around the Table Fridays: Parents are invited to join us for an incredible tasting at the end of the camp session on Fridays. Witness and taste your child’s delicious accomplishments first hand! The exact dates and times will be in your registration confirmation for each session.
