Kid Summer Camps
Do you know a child between the ages of 7 and 14 who loves to cook or bake? Then the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College has a unique summer camp just for you!
For a few weeks every July, 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 College's kitchens – 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 Camp will expand your child’s dining horizons, build math skills and self esteem, promote teamwork and even get them to cook for you!
