Summer Cooking Camp

Do you have a kid (7-11) or Teen (12-16), who loves to cook or bake? Then Wynton’s World Cooking School has a unique summer camp just for you! For a few weeks every June, July and August, campers have the opportunity to hang out and learn with some of the best chef instructors in the industry. Throughout the week, beginning with the basics of kitchen safety, campers will participate in hands-on Culinary or Pastry classes in the school’s kitchen – all while using real recipes easy enough to duplicate with the family at home. We also cover nutrition, ingredient information and food safety. Our Summer Cooking Camps will expand your child’s dining horizons, build math skills and self-esteem, promote teamwork and even get them to cook for you!
