2018 Summer Camps

Cupcake Wars is Back!

Back by popular demand, Cupcake Wars is returning with all new themes and recipes this summer!  Children will be divided into teams and will work together to follow the recipe of the day.  After popping their batch of cupcakes into the oven and cleaning their workstation, everyone will head to the creative lab to design their own presentation that corresponds to the theme of the day.  Children will make mini posters using the accessories provided and will create an impressive display for the judges.  Once the cupcakes have cooled, the fun really begins!  Children will have a blast decorating their cupcakes using a new 

technique each day, ranging from fillings and frostings to pastry bags and fondant applications.  The best part is that your budding pastry chef will bring home their creations!

Themes you may see this summer: Harry & Meghan's Royal Wedding State-side,  The Bronx Zoo escapes to Muscoot Farm, King Kone creations. We welcome suggestions!

Garden to Table

School is Out and summer has begun!  Let nature be our guide as we explore the great outdoors and prepare culinary creations appropriate to the season.  Join us as we engage all of our senses to learn about insects, the garden and our resident chickens.  We will germinate our own seeds, explore questions such as "why are insects vital to food production?" and discover why farmers enrich their soil with nitrates from animal husbandry.  It's the food-production cycle!

Come into the kitchen and use a variety of culinary tools to prepare a snack themed to the day's explorations.  We will make individual lady-bug pizza pies, made from scratch spider pretzels and insect themed cupcakes.  Tap your creativity to craft, play games and read stories that will enhance our learning about sustainable food production.  Your children will take pride in the culinary creations that they take home and if you are lucky, they just may share a bite with you!
