Kids Camps

Our Cooking camps are a great introduction to cooking—learning how to cook for yourself is an important life skill that builds confidence and learning in a community of peers is fun!

At the Co-op we want to excite students of all ages to feel confident in the kitchen by learning new skills, exploring new flavors, and creating healthy seasonal food so budding young chefs can become active participants in the kitchen at home.

Sous-Chef Camps
