In-Person Summer Cooking Camps

2022 IN-PERSON SUMMER CAMP SESSIONS 

CAMPS RUN FROM 9:00AM – 4:00PM MONDAY – FRIDAY

CAMPS HAVE BEEN ARRANGED BASED ON COOKING LEVEL

WE ARE PEANUT FREE AND ALLERGY AWARE

Rooks to Cooks is both Peanut / Tree Nut Free and Allergy Aware! We ask that parents speak to our staff about any known allergies prior to the start of your program. We strive to accommodate all campers and we will work with parents and children to ensure that the necessary precautions have been taken. It is important that all parties (camp staff, parents and campers) clearly understand that, in no way, can we guarantee that we will be able to remove all allergy-inducing ingredients from our recipes.

Beginner Cooking Camps

We recommend this program for youth ages  6 - 10 who have little to no previous experience in the kitchen. This is meant to be an introductory course, while still challenging our Rooks to work their way into our Intermediate programs this summer!

Intermediate Cooking Camps

Advance Cooking Camps

We recommend this program for youth ages 10  - 16  who have a good level of previous experience in the kitchen. Advanced courses are ideal for students who have taken Rooks to Cooks or other cooking programs in the past.  This is meant to challenge all kitchen skills and allow their creativity to shine!

At the end of each camp day, food will be sent home with campers in Tupperware containers. Tupperware containers are to be supplied by the families.
