I'm always impressed by the number of students who ask me how to earn money by creating what they love. This week is about drawing out the entrepreneurial spirit in your student by teaching them how to setup a bake sale or baking business and making what they love - whether it's for the latest iPhone, to save for college, or as a fundraiser for their favorite group/charity. We will foster their spirit in this class with lessons that will include:

  • review the cottage food law
  • planning and budgeting
  • preparing and making their craft of choice
  • marketing and location
  • time in class to make samples
  • how to keep track of it all

Students are encouraged to bring a laptop or a tablet, but if they don't have one, we will provide all materials in paper format to everyone. It's a nice to have, not a requirement. At the end of camp we will host a sale on the patio for parents, friends, and family to join (depending on social distancing regulations at the time!)

At the end of camp, students will be able to signup for an ongoing mentoring program with Chef Tiffany where they will meet monthly to keep the process going.

Students registered for both morning and afternoon classes are fully supervised during lunch. 

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!
