We are excited to announce a new theme this year: Camping Cuisine! If your family loves to go camping or even up to the cabin, this is going to be a lot of fun. We will explore:

  • how to plan a menu for the weekend
  • what foods travel well and which ones don't
  • prepping meals in advance for easy meals
  • how to cook for large and small groups
  • cooking over an open fire and a grill with the appropriate safety measures
  • wrap up the week with our own Family Bonfire on Thursday afternoon/evening (this activity is pending due to social distancing regulations in June, but we wanted to mention the plan)

Safety Note:
Chef Tiffany is supervising this class and has many years of experience teaching middle and high school age students how to cook on actual camping trips. However, our insurance coverage requires an additional consent form for this class. Parents that register for this class will receive this form in May when we send out summer camp reminders.

How to Prepare Inexperienced Young Chefs for Success
While you are waiting for summer, you can help your young chef prepare for camp by working on their measuring skills. Let them pour, scoop, and measure all types of ingredients. Talk to them about the labels on the measuring cups and spoons and how it matches the ingredients list on your recipe - or even on the side of a box. This is a No Judgement Zone! The more you allow them to work in the kitchen with you, the more independent they become.

What To Bring to Camp:

  • Bring a cold lunch and a water bottle
  • Bring to-go containers. More details about size later.
  • Long hair should be tied back away from their faces.
  • Closed-toe, comfortable shoes. They stand a LOT while they are cooking!
