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 is 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 in class!
In our virtual academies, your child will learn to be confident in their own kitchen! After each class dinner is ready at home for the whole family! They will learn to make a variety of dishes with different ingredients and techniques. You can join in from anywhere with a kitchen, plus you don’t have to drive your child to campus!
Our in-person Cooking Academy is held on the OSU campus. We provide all the materials your chef will need to succeed in the kitchen. Our Head Chefs will guide our little chefs through new and exciting recipes. At the end of the session, your chef will gain independence and confidence in the kitchen.

These cooking academies are IN PERSON, for incoming 3rd-8th graders. Each day goes from 8:30am until 12:50pm (with the option for pre-care starting at 7:30am) and campers get to eat their creation for lunch!
