About our Summer Camp
Lil’ Chef School Summer Camp starts Monday, June 10, 2019 and goes thru August 23rd. Our camps are organized into 3 age groups so all chefs team up with their peers. Ages are: Tiny Chefs 4-6, Lil’ Chefs 7-9 and Teen Chefs 10 and older. All chefs will receive a Lil’ Chef School apron for the first camp enrolled to keep for their very own and will get to taste everything that they cook. This is a hands-on cooking camp and all of our recipes will be available on our website.
Camps will be held Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 12 pm. Weeks 3, 5 and 7 also offer afternoon camps from 2-5:00 pm. Week 4 (ages 9 and up) and Week 6 (ages 7 and up) offers all-day camps from 9 am to 3 pm. Week 11 offers a single day camp purchase option for those who can attend 1 to 4 days but not all week.

If your child cannot be dropped off, then they may be too young to stay at camp for an extended period of time.

Any guardian that is late picking up their child will be charged $50 for every 10-minute increment upon completion of the camp unless we are notified of the tardiness ahead of time.
