About Our Camps...

Classes will be divided into two age appropriate groups: 3-5 years old and 6-9 years old.

Cooking Thyme is offering two camp options this summer! Our famous half-day camp and our popular all-day camp! Half-day camps run Monday through Friday from 9am-1:30pm and full-day camps run Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm. Enjoying perusing and choosing the camp that best fits your families needs!  

The fun doesn't just end with cooking! We will practice social skills, pattern recognition, cooking tool functions, colors, counting, following directions, fine motor skill development and more throughout our curriculum. 

What is included in the camp tuition? Little Chef recipe book, cooking utensil (collect all 10!), snack, lunch, beverage and dessert for the week...and much more!

**$100 sibling discount ($100 applies to the first sibling) enrolled in the SAME camp. Each additional sibling enrolled in the same camp is $30 off. Please contact Rachel Moore (rachel.moore@cookingthyme.com) if you interested in registering more than 1 sibling. 

Please Note: There is a minimum of four students per camp. In the event the minimum is not met, Cooking Thyme will provide parents with a variety of options to accommodate their child. If no solution can be found, Cooking Thyme will refund the customers payment.

No refunds will be issued for campers who sign up but do not show up for camp. All sales are final. If your child is unable to attend the camp that you signed up for please contact rachel.moore@cookingthyme.org immediately and we will help as much as possible to get your child transferred to another week of camp, as long as there is space in that camp. The sooner we know, the more we can help!

Our goal is to bring families together in the kitchen. We look forward to cooking with your child this summer!

Camps 1 and 7: Triple Play! 
Half-Day with Aftercare (Optional) 

​It a Triple Play! Taken after our popular Chopped camp theme, chefs will be given one ingredient as the theme of the day. They will use this ingredient to create a refreshing beverage, delectable lunch and a scrumptious dessert! If the ingredient is spinach, they may start by making a spinach and berry power smoothie, followed by homemade ravioli stuffed with spinach, and ending with a vanilla cupcake with spinach cream frosting! The possibilities are exciting, creative and thought provoking!

Aftercare Option: 1:30pm-5:00pm
Families can now choose to use our aftercare option for an additional fee. During the aftercare hours, campers will be given a snack, participate in a group activity or craft, attend the playground and have a rest time. 
The price is $120 for the week and is based on a 5pm pickup time. Families may choose to pick-up their child before 5pm (please give notice) but early pick-up will not be pro-rated.

Just like superheroes, everyday our bodies fight off villains, germs!
But our body can't do it alone, it needs our help! It needs fuel, and what you fuel your body with matters. In camp we will introduce our chefs to the best fuel -SUPER FOODS!
We will introduce a new superfood each day and discover how these foods help our body perform, promote brain health and keep our body running long and strong.
At the end of our camp you made find yourself asking, "is that a bird? or a plane?...no, it's my Super Chef!"

​​This Enchanted Camp will have Princes and Princesses from everywhere having a BALL! Your Little Chef will join Prince Philip in slaying dragons with our Mighty Melon Cups and help Elsa make some delicious FROZEN snowflake cookies. Cinderella's carriage may even turn into a Pumpkin Carriage Pie! It is not required...but Campers can come to camp each day dressed as their favorite Fairy Tale hero! We look forward to a great week with a happily ever after ending!
