VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMPS

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE OUR NEW VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP COOKING PROGRAM.

Due to State recommendations we felt it unwise to operate our usual array of camps this summer. So we have been working very hard to put together a new fun and educational alternative.

 Our KIDS “R’ COOKS camp for AGES 8-12 will be held Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9-10am, beginning June 22 and running until July31. Click HERE for dasaily menus for this program

Our KIDS “R” COOKS camp for AGES 13-16, wil be held on the same days from 11am-12:30pm. Click HERE for daily menus for this program

You will be able to register for 1-18 sessions as and when you wish, we are not asking you to commit to a month or even a week! Although once you have registered you must give us 48 hours notice if you wish to reschedule and session.

Also new this year: We are offering package discounts for 4, 8 or 12 sessions. These can be purchased in advance and used for any camp dates offered. The packages are valid until July 31 and are non-refundable.

If you select the package option* you will receive a package “code” which you can then use to register for the dates, on our calendar, that you would like your child to attend. Should you misplace your code please contact us and we can retrieve it for you.
