10 Reasons why cooking summer camps are great for your kids

Cooking summer camps with Artful Chefs


Here are 10 reasons why you need to send your kids to

Artful Chefs cooking summer camps.

We focus on  fun with purposeful learning and that is always a great idea. 

1.  Cooking camps help kids make Healthy Food Choices – Learning to cook helps kids to learn about nutrition and healthy eating. Fun recipes and experiences introduce kids to great habits that can last a lifetime.


2.  Boost their Self Esteem. If your child needs a boost of self confidence, (and who doesn’t!) cooking with other kids will do just that. They are accomplishing a task, learning something important and contributing to the class teams.

3.  Fosters a positive attitude and give opportunity to practice teamwork . Kids and share ideas about meal planning, cooking and favorite foods.  We give them a voice and express interest, we watch the positive affects appear immediately.

4. Kids will be more apt to eat what they make. Perhaps, it is the enthusiasm of creating  something themselves, but they will be more likely to eat whatever they had a hand in making.

5.  Kids learn real lessons in Science, Language, Math and Creativity. Artful Chefs culinary camps will help to  reinforce all these subjects!

6.  Kids learn life skills at our summer camp. Skills that Jr. Chefs learn at our cooking camps can be especially helpful when kids grow up to be on their own.  They won’t have to rely on fast food and junk food to sustain them.

7.  Kids see they can help contribute to the family and they can feel the importance of helping.

8.  Kids learn to work together as a team, Whether it is with anther kid, parent or with a sibling to get the job done they see how working cooperatively with others is always the best way to get things done.

9.  Kids learn planning and decision making  when practicing cooking, making grocery lists and reading recipes, kids are using  planning and decision making skills

10.  Practice creativity and imagination. Kids cooking activities are a great way for them to express themselves and enjoy their creations.

“We hired Chef Pharrell for a Mothers Day dinner for our family. Very simply, she did what she said that she would do! She was easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to our dietary issues. Food looked great and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special.”
