Cooking Camps

Every summer we bring joyful, educational, fun, silly, delicious COOKING CAMPS! This summer we are bringing back some favorites, while also bringing in some new ideas that are SURE to inspire your chef to cook good food, while creating memories to last a lifetime. ENROLL HERE

CAMP BASICS:

Camps are created and hosted by Amanda from The Good Food Factory.

Ages 5-12
*Note: Our camps are fast-paced and suitable for all ages 5-12, but our camps do work best with children who are a bit more mature and ready to step into leadership and action! If your child has not yet been to kindergarten and/or takes a bit of time to warm up to new people and situations, you may want to wait a year or two before joining so that they have the best time possible. We do our best to accommodate all children, but we are naturally a bit loud, busy, and full of laughter. Children who desire a calm and quieter space should look at the last week (The Best You Camp) where we’ll be a bit more ‘internal’ and center-focused.

Daily Camp Times: Monday – Friday / 9am-1pm

Cost: $225 Per Chef per week!
Price includes all materials and food!

Location: The Hub @ 825 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad CA 92008

Skills and Food: All camps will heavily focus on cooking, knife skills (we use real chef’s knives), cooking methods and terms. We typically cook 2-3 recipes each day and chefs will sample the food, while also having some to share with family that picks them up. We do encourage parents to pack a lunch, so every chef has a hearty meal that they know they’ll enjoy.

“Thanksgiving Feast” a 3 day cooking class will teach young chefs how to cook and prepare an entire Thanksgiving meal, in addition to teaching the joy of service, as the entire meal will be donated and served. 

10 young chefs, ages 7-14, will be cooking up a feast to remember the 3 days leading up to Thanksgiving. Meeting each day from 9am-1pm at 825 Carlsbad Village Drive, they’ll prepare from scratch a traditional Thanksgiving meal: cranberry sauce, cornbread, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and of course, Turkey.
The class is created and led by Amanda from The Good Food Factory. “Thanksgiving is a favorite meal of mine to teach,” says Amanda.  “Each year we learn the traditions, history and food of the first Thanksgiving. In the past we’ve made enough food to feed 20 or more people and I always thought it would be great if we could also practice the tradition of giving and instilling in youth the joy of service.”
Thanksgiving Feast!
Ages 7-14  with previous cooking experience.
Class is limited to 10 chefs
November 21,22,23rd 9am-1pm
