5-Day kid`s Summer cooking CAMPs

The Chef Upstairs is hosting kids in the Kitchen during the Summer Holiday Break, with 5-day camps that run Monday to Friday.

  • Locations - Midtown Toronto or Vaughan/Thornhill
  • # of Weeks - 11 weeks beginning June 18 - 22
  • Ages - from age 7 to 17. Average age is typically 10 to 11
  • Junior Camps - ages 7 and up (born in 2011 or before)
  • Teen Camps - must be born in 2006 or before
  • Drop-off and Pick-up - the classes start at 9 am but you may drop your child off anytime after 8:30 am. The pick-up time is at 4 pm, but pop by early if you want to sample some of their food!
  • Late Pick-ups - Pick-up time is 3:45 to 4 pm. We understand that traffic happens and we offer a 10 minute grace period, however if you are running late the day of, please notify the chef by phone or email. If more than 15 minutes late – a late fee will be charged.
  • Pricing - Weekly Bookings ($595 plus HST) or by the day ($130 plus HST)
  • Baking & Cooking - The kids cooking classes are sure to bring out your child’s inner chef. With the perfect balance of fun and learning, the "junior chefs in training" will engage in hands-on baking and cooking, while learning healthy eating habits, as well as kitchen and food safety.
  • Daily Breakfast - your child will start the day by learning how to make fun and healthy breakfast meals (pancakes, french toast, crepes, omelettes, burritos, etc.) . The Chef will then explain the program for the day and then it's non-stop cooking and baking fun.
  • Lunch - each day, the kids working as a team, prepare a ‘Family Style’ themed lunch (Mexican, Italian, Asian, Indian, etc.). Thursdays are Picnic in the Park day and Fridays we have Iron Chef Day, where the kids get to use all of the skills and tricks they have learned throughout the week.
  • Exercise - we will take the children out for exercise at least once a day at the local park; or we may walk with them to the Mount Pleasant Library to browse through the latest cookbooks; or they may go shopping in the neighbourhood stores for fresh local ingredients.
  • What to Bring - the kids will have plenty to eat throughout the day and the only things they will need are (i) a reusable water bottle with their name on it and (ii) a towel and bathing suit if it is hot and they want to cool off in the splash pool at the park.
  • Supervision - in addition to our top-notch chefs we will have two helpers on site

If you are lucky, your child will soon be making dinner for you every night!
