COOKING CAMPS (by Tiny Chefs)

While exploring cultural and food related themes, Tiny Chef's program includes a foundation of learning that enhances what kids learn in their regular classrooms; organization skills, safety, nutrition, working as a team, cooperation, taking turns. Basic reading and math skills are used daily, as campers follow recipes, learn to measure, and double or half the amounts. Campers will learn how much fun it is to cook, as well these special joys of cooking: Pride in creating a meal to share with others, Creativity in putting your own special twist on a familiar recipe. New techniques and skills while working with familiar foods and exotic delicacies, and learning a life skill is useful every day! We hope all our Tiny and Gourmet Chefs, and their families; enjoy the recipes we have included in their session. All students will receive an apron and cookbooks will be emailed after the session containing the recipes they have made, so that they may share their new skills, experiences and tastes with everyone at home. Send in a tupperware container for your child to take home extra goodies from camp!

Dips and Donuts (Week 2 ~ June 25-29)

Does your kid love to dip their food? Chips in salsa, veggies in hummus, bread sticks in marinara sauce? How about dipping donuts in glazes and toppings?  In this fun, nutritious and delicious camp, the Tiny Chefs will do all of that! Savory recipes like Mexican Layered Dip or Spinach and Artichoke Dip in Wonton Wrappers will be made side-by side with Lemon Glazed Blueberry Donuts and Pumpkin Donut Holes with Cinnamon Topping. These are just a few of the types of recipes your Tiny Chef will enjoy as they dip and dunk (and bake and blend) their way through our newest camp!

Let’s Make Everyday a Holiday  (Week 3 ~ July 2-6; no camp July 4)

Holidays conjure up memories and nostalgia and so much of it food related!  Get ready for a week of delicious celebrations as we whip up Thanksgiving Pumpkin parfaits, Fourth of July cupcakes, Valentine's Day Chocolate Raspberry mousse cups, Halloween spider web pizzas, and Cinco de Mayo veggie quesadillas with guacamole, plus much, much more!  What could be more fun than enjoying Valentine’s Day goodies in July?  Join us for this 4 day week!

Breakfast for Dinner (Week 6 ~ July 23-27)

Turn your favorite breakfast dishes into the main event as dinner options.  How about a cheddar-chive frittata with fresh salsa?  Or Brunch pasta with bacon and eggs?  Maybe you’d prefer a more traditional French toast, dressed up with bananas and blueberries?  Any way you slice it your little chef will love tucking into these comforting breakfast classics.

Cupcake Wars (Week 1 ~ June 18-22)

Cupcakes are all the rage and it’s a trend that’s clearly here to stay!  If you’ve ever been curious about how the pros make those cupcakes so precious and ornate, and if competition is your middle name, then this is the week for you!  We’ll spend three days on cupcake basics-measuring, mixing, baking, and frosting, and then finish the week with two days of baking battle!  Small teams will face off with one another to compete for the title of “Best Cupcake!”  May the best cupcake win!

Kids Cook-off (Week 4 ~ July 9-13)

Kid cooks, bakers and chefs have joined the ranks of elimination style cooking contests and here at Tiny Chefs we are getting in on the action!  In this exciting session, classes will be separated into rotating teams and each team will create recipes that are judged by the instructors in a blind taste test.  Sometimes the teams will create the same item, and compete head to head.  Other times, they will create different recipes within a theme such as Snack Attack or Sweet and Savory Pies.  May the best team win!

Cookie Explosion (Week 5 ~ July 16-20)

Who doesn’t love cookies? There is nothing as comforting as the aroma and taste of freshly baked cookies. Tiny Chefs and Gourmet Chefs will be exploring the world of cookies!  We will be learning the basic delicious chocolate chip cookie and creating sweet and savory cookies for all types of cookie lovers! Whoopie Pies, Ice Cream Sandwiches, and Brownies will not be forgotten! The Tiny and Gourmet Chefs will learn valuable baking skills and methods along with exploring the world of cookies!
