Calling all budding chefs, entrepreneurs, and restaurant enthusiasts! Open and operate your very own restaurant in Kitchen Kid’s popular Restaurant Camp! Chefs will immerse themselves in every step of the process: choose the concept and name, design the decor, create a menu and logo, learn restaurant jobs and etiquette, create, cook, and serve their signature dishes to friends and family. Throughout the week kids will also prepare delicious recipes and safely learn kitchen fundamentals, palate development, and culinary techniques.
