Hayward Summer Camp

A cooking camp for kids 6 - 13 who want a "taste" of the world! Cooking Round the World is the intersection where culinary arts meet cultural education. Each camp day, we immerse a child into the experience of being in a foreign land. Campers cook, taste, smell and savor foods from other countries. We encourage them to try new foods and food combinations they've never tried before and ultimately broaden their palates. Additional camp activities include some language development, playing a children's game from the country of the day, watching a daily cooking demonstration, seeing a slide show for context, hearing an international folktale, participating in a trivia game show about the country of the day, and joining a rousing competition of the TV show "Chopped" where kids are the chefs and the adults merely guide the process.
