Kids' Spring Cooking Series
Let Your Children Do the Cooking
In our cooking series, children learn to cook by actually preparing the menu items themselves each day, not by watching someone else cook while explaining how the recipe is prepared. When children cook food, they are more likely to try what they have prepared. At the end of each class, the kids enjoy the food they have prepared.
For children ages 6 and up. Children of like ages are paired together.

Children’s Cooking Class Testimonials
What People Are Saying
“My Daughter Taught Me New Recipes”
“My 10-year-old daughter made banana pudding, chicken pot pie and cornbread—all from scratch! (I have never made pudding that didn’t start with a box.) We had her food for dinner, and it was amazing. She was so proud of what she made and realized the amount of time that goes into cooking. She brought home the recipes, so now I can make pudding from scratch too.”
“My Son Never Wants to Leave This Camp”
“This is an amazing school. The summer camp is absolutely incredible…great teachers, great facility, all around GREAT!!! My son has loved going to camp every morning and doesn’t want to leave in the afternoons!“
“A Worry-Free Birthday Bash”
“My daughter celebrated her 10th birthday here with 17 friends! I was worried about having so many guests, but Terri and her team were amazing! Everything was organized, relaxed, and super fun. The girls had a blast and all came home excited to cook for their families. I was blown away to watch 18 kids happily cook and then eat together!”
“My Teenage Son Cooks For Me!”
“Andrew has loved cooking at JAX Cooking Studio this summer! The quality of the food that has been coming home is outstanding. Our whole family has enjoyed tasting Andrew’s camp creations.”
