Virtual Healthy Cooking Summer Camp 2020

Kids can experience an engaging and educational LIVE virtual cooking camp taught by a Chef Teacher where they will cook, make 12 recipes, learn about culinary careers and have fun!  

Limited to the first 12 campers per week! Join our Camp Today!

A virtual cooking summer camp is a half-day camp designed to help kids improve their health, eat more vegetables and cook at home.  


It’s 15 hours of instructions for a full week Monday-Friday from 9:00am-12:00pm that will keep your children engaged and entertained so that you can work, relax and go about your day in the morning.  


We do this with a specific structure that includes a quick no-cook breakfast, art project, exercise component, educational lesson (i.e. virtual restaurant tour,) cultural learning and a live cook-along healthy lunch EACH day.


Even if your child has no experience cooking or is a picky eater, our class led by our energetic and passionate Chef Teachers will help your kids improve their confidence, health and all while HAVING FUN!   

What You Get When You Invest In Your Child’s Culinary Education


We think of each day as a well-rounded camp experience. Each day includes:

Quick No-Cook Breakfast:

Our Chef Teachers showcase a speedy meal that requires no cooking so we can begin with a healthy bite and quick demo (see below for examples)

Virtual Learning:

We take kids into a restaurant, grocery store, farmer’s market and more with a virtual tour followed by discussions about sustainability, culinary careers and more

Art Project: 

Campers will engage in a fun, personalized art project, such as designing a menu with markers and paper or creating a layout of their dream restaurant.
Health Learning: 
Chefs will engage kids in a presentation and discussion on important health topics like good vs bad carbs, healthy fats, the truth behind gluten and more!

LIVE Cook Along Healthy Lunch: 

The day ends with a 1-hour live cook-along with our Chef teacher making a healthy lunch from scratch.  Kids can cook live (alongside a parent) OR kick back and enjoy the show so they can make the recipe later that day.

Our #1 Goal: 

Get your kids to cook healthy meals for your family at home!

How Does The Cooking Work Virtually?

There are two portions of cooking with our Chef, as noted below


Quick No-Cook Breakfast: 

Parents will get an exact list of common household ingredients (oats, nuts, bread) and fresh ingredients (vegetables, fruit, yogurt, etc.) to make an EASY breakfast that requires no cooking, just assembling and putting simple ingredients together.  Kids can do this by themselves with the Chef Teacher during the class because there's no cooking involved.


Examples: 


Yogurt Parfait with Granola, Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats, Quinoa & Blueberries Cereal, etc. Parents just get the ingredients ready, a placemat and let our Chefs do the rest!



Cook-Along Healthy Lunch:  

Parents can cook ALONGSIDE their kids at 11:00am (after all, it’s almost lunch time!) OR kids can simply watch and engage with the live lessons. We’ve taught dozens of virtual cooking classes this way, and kids benefit if they make the lunch, or just hang out with the group and watch how food is made, like a live cooking show.  


Recipe Examples:  


Healthy Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese with Broccoli Slaw, Sushi Handrolls, Lean Burgers, Chicken Salad Wraps, Orange Chicken with Rice, etc.

What are the technology requirements to participate?

Students only need a laptop or tablet with a video camera, high-speed Internet access and a quiet space to focus. It is not required to join by video, but is recommenced because our Chef Teachers like to see the happy, excited faces of our students.

Is there a refund policy?

We offer a refund minus $25 processing fee for any refunds requested up to 2 weeks before the start date of the session.

What makes this program different from other online classes?

We get students to cook with you at home! Students are already at home most of the day, and after this class you can jump in the kitchen and make the dish using our cookbook. Kids in our class are more likely to: help chop vegetables with their parents, make chicken tenders from scratch and eat vegetables like bell peppers, lettuce, zucchini or cauliflower in new ways.
