 It's that time of year again!

Our Junior Chef Summer Camps are for upcoming 3rd-5th & 6th-8th graders for the 2024 school year. Camps are from June 10th-Aug 16th, Monday-Friday for a half-day experience 8-11AM or 1-4PM.

Camp registration opens on Monday, January 15th, 2024.

Junior Chefs will learn knife skills, a multitude of cooking techniques, food safety, regional cuisines, ingredient identification, and to top it all off - how to put together dishes from scratch!  

We offer two different themes to choose from:

  • New world: Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, American Southwest, American Northeast
  • Old world: Spain, Africa, Korea, UK, France

Menus are subject to change based on availability and seasonality of some items. If your child has any food allergies, dietary restrictions, or even food curious - we do our best to work around your child’s needs as necessary. Make a comment while at check-out! Simple. As. That.

The health and safety of your child is of utmost importance. First Aid kits are on-site, but if your child needs something specific, bring it on Monday. Hand washing sink and hand sanitizers are at each workstation and dining table.

Don't forget to bring re-usable tupperware every day of camp! We care about the social and environmental impact of the food we eat. That’s why we emphasize the importance of minimizing food waste, and enjoying a meal with friends and family.

Camp cost is $400, plus 8.5% sales tax.

If your child is attending another Stanley summer camp, we offer extra hours for kids to stay with us before/after camp! Select the option "Junior Chef camp M-F with extra 2 hours 11am-1pm" while at check out. It is $50/day between 11am-1pm.
