Rata2ee Cooking Camps Summer 2023

Rata2ee Cooking Camps Summer Programs – Cooking camps for kids ages 7-11 throughout the entire summer at 5 convenient locations across Metro Detroit.

Rata2ee Cooking Camps Summer 2023

Children learn healthy cooking skills, through fun and play, without the Chef Gordon Ramsey yelling! Each day of this 1-week camp, kids will make and eat a morning snack, get in some fun exercise activities, cook and eat a 3-course meal, learn basic gardening, play nutrition games, and end their day with yoga. Rata2ee teaches cutting techniques (with kid-safe knives), weights and measures, stove and kitchen safety, and sanitation. Kids also learn where food comes from and what makes a healthy plate. This well-rounded camp takes a holistic approach to healthy living. Each day starts and ends with a theme word that promotes character-building.

Camps are taught by ServSafe Certified Chefs and teachers who already work within local schools. As part of the registration process, parents must sign a liability waiver for any child to attend. A week before the camp starts, an email with important information (like what to wear, what is ok and not ok to bring to the classroom, drop off and pick up information) will be sent. All recipes are nut free; however, all allergies must be listed on the registration/waiver form and will be followed up with a discussion with the chef prior to the session starting. Please note, there is no kids club (latchkey) available with this camp. Sessions are limited, so sign up NOW to get the week you want with your friends!
