Kids PA Day Camps for your children age 7 and up!

Rooks to Cooks is ready to get back into the kitchen with our PA Day Camps this year! We aim to help your child discover and foster a love of cooking, learn new skills, challenge themselves with new recipes, and experiment with foods and flavours. Each PA day camp program features brand new recipes inspired by the season and developed to engage your child in a fun, educational and tasty way while they’re outside of the classroom.

LOCATION: Bathurst and Lawrence

In this family-oriented neighbourhood, we have found a lovely location at the Asbury and West United Church, 3180 Bathurst St. (just North of Lawrence Ave. W.).

This facility is newly renovated throughout with a large air-conditioned kitchen and a roomy adjacent hall for our cooking lessons.
