JAX Cooking Studio Summer Camps are sure to be a highlight of your child’s summer! We teach kids basic culinary skills. They learn to work independently and in teams to cook the day’s recipes. Each week, we feature a different camp theme, so your child can choose the most interesting topic. At the end of each day, campers eat the recipes they prepared.

$340 per child for five days of camp, 3 hours per day.

1. how to be safe in the kitchen, including hand and workspace sanitizing, proper food handling, including how to wash food; knife safety;
2. how to read and follow a recipe;
3. how to arrange the kitchen workplace so that all the items needed for the recipe are located and placed nearby (mise en place);
4. how to accurately measure ingredients using measuring cups, measuring spoons, and kitchen scales;
5. how to bake/roast, stew/braise, stir-fry, make sauces and soups;
6. the difference between whole and processed foods and how each affects health;
7. the importance of sustainability and eating what is in season;
8. how to reuse or repurpose ingredients already on hand; and
9. how to clean up the kitchen.

AGES: The series is appropriate for kids ages 7 and above. In order to ensure the maximum benefit for all children, your child must be capable of following directions and cooperating with others in the class.

CLASS SIZE LIMIT: Due to the level of individualized attention, we accept only 16 to 18 children per session.

CANCELATION POLICY: When you register your child for a spot in our cooking series, we reserve one of our 18 spots for your child. We purchase ingredients and schedule the appropriate number of staff to ensure that your child has a wonderful and educational experience. If you notify us at least 21 days before the first day of the camp, we will issue you a full refund less the credit card processing fees we encountered. If you provide at least 7 days’ notice before the camp, we will attempt to rebook your child’s spot. If we are successful, we will provide you with a credit valid for one year which you may use on future classes. If we are not able to rebook your child’s camp spot or if you provide less than 7 days’ notice, we regret that no refund or store credit will be issued. If you register for a camp but later wish to give that camp spot to another child, a $25 administrative processing fee will be assessed.
