Our cool classes can improve far more than your kid’s culinary prowess.  Here’s how!

Math – Adjusting measurements, doubling recipes, and working with fractions are all integral to basic baking and cooking – and your kid won’t even realize they’re practicing math (which, let’s face it, is the best way to practice math).

Science – Especially through baking, your child will learn how different ingredients interact to create different results. If the timing or combination is off, the cupcakes will be too! Cooking is pretty much one big science experiment, but tastier.

Comprehension – Reading a recipe, understanding techniques like blending and folding, and following ordered step-by-step instructions are all important aspects of creating a proper final product. Throughout this process, kids improve their reading skills and strengthen their memories!

Communication – Life is all about playing well with others. Our camp provides prime opportunities for healthy socialization – whether kids are listening to instructions or borrowing extra flour from a new friend, they’re learning to productively connect and converse with fellow human beings.

Fine Motor Skills – Developing fine motor skills is a vital part of growing up, and a natural benefit of cooking at a young age. Kids will quickly sharpen their coordination through basic movements like mixing and measuring.

…And you just might get some home-cooked meals out of the deal, too!
