Our pre-k/k campers are capable of all of this and more!

Campers will whip up a fabulous edible creation each day!  Children will make a snack, appetizer, side dish or healthy desert to share daily and maybe learn some tips to help their family cook at home!  We'll decorate our own aprons and each camper will bring home a recipe book at the end of camp.
