A Chef?


Help your child learn to cook with our Cooking Academy!

Creating Confidence & Independence in the Kitchen

Cooking encourages children's thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. It also helps them develop skills in counting, measuring, following a sequence, following directions, and cause and effect. Most importantly, cooking can help develop a child's confidence and independence in and out of the kitchen!

Our Cooking Academy camps are for chefs in grades 3 to 8. We deliver them both virtually and in-person, at our kitchen on campus.

Whether your child is an independent chef or is still learning, they will learn to prepare a wide variety of delicious meals for the family. Plus they'll get to eat the food they make every day at camp!


Our cooking Academies are 3 week sessions, 2 nights/week (6 classes).


In-person academies:

For our in-person Cooking Academy held on the OSU campus, we provide all the materials your chef will need in the kitchen. They'll need to bring water, snacks and a backpack for take-home items. Be sure they come dressed for messy cooking sessions! They should also wear closed-toes shoes, and hair pulled back and out of face. We provide aprons but they are welcome to bring their own special one if they have it.


Virtual academies:

For our virtual Cooking Academy, you'll be asked to print the recipes for the food that will prepared during each class, and grocery shop beforehand to gather all ingredients. We do our best to choose recipes that will allow families to be as hands-off as possible, but depending on how comfortable your chef is in the kitchen, you may need to provide them with some help during a virtual class.


Cooking Academy Dates


We plan to offer one (3 week) cooking academy per month, February through June 2023. We are working to finalize the details and have not yet opened online registration.
