A CREATIVE EXPERIENCE
A WHOLE LOT OF FUN!
Taste of Grace Summer Day Camps - Baking & Cooking

Inspire imagination & learn new skills

Taste of Grace Summer Camps are sure to be a highlight of your child’s summer! We teach kids basic culinary and creative skills while they work in small teams to cook the day’s recipes in a positive, Christ-centered atmosphere bursting with an energetic & empowering vibe. Each week we feature a different camp theme, so your child can choose the most interesting topic or join us for each week to learn a whole new set of recipes! 

Cooking, creativity, and design is what we LOVE to do! It’s fun and a valuable life skill that is getting harder to come by. We know that “real food” is really good – it tastes delicious and we need it for strong, healthy bodies and brains. We want to inspire outside-the-box thinking and explore artistic expression in new ways. We have seen that the best way to get kids loving all things food is to get them in the kitchen measuring, mixing, chopping, touching, smelling and tasting. We believe in the power of hospitality and community — real change happens one bite at a time.

LUNCH MENU

Lunch will provided at camp each day with delicious meals kids will love! Your child is welcome to bring their own lunch if they prefer for one or all days, however the registration fee does not change. If your child has food allergies, please make sure to note them when registering so that we can plan ahead to make accommodations as needed.

HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES

We will maintain a 1:6 staff to camper ratio for proper supervision and guidance. Although our chefs will be there to offer guidance, our goal is to allow the kids to work as independently in the kitchen as possible while learning proper food handling, hand washing, and workspace sanitization procedures. Closed toe shoes are required.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

For your child’s safety and the safety of other children we’ve reduced the class size and implemented additional practices beyond our usual measures for food safety and sanitization.

  • Face masks are required,
  • Kids will work in small groups of no more than 4 at any point.
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations will be in place throughout the camp area with fun set times to sanitize!
  • Gloves will be provided and worn when working with food.
  • If a child exhibits ANY signs of illness, they will not be allowed to attend.

We will use these additional practices as a learning opportunity and keep the mood fun and uplifting with Socially Distant Impromptu Dance Parties!

FAQs

Who will be teaching and supervising the sessions?

We have two chefs on staff, Christopher & Bethany Hewitt, who will be leading alongside a former school teacher & a current school teacher. In addition, we will have Camp Counselors (ranging from high school to college age) to assist the small groups and make it even more FUN! Everyone assisting with camp is vetted and known for their character and responsible nature. Rest assured that the environment will be uplifting, empowering, and encouraging as that is the heart of who we are!

Do kids need baking/cooking experience to take any of these classes?

Not at all! We welcome kids of all skill levels. In some cases, we’ll separate kids into two age groups (7-9 years and 10-14 years) to keep the class moving at a pace that’s right for each age range so that all children have a great experience!

What should campers wear each day?

Campers can wear comfortable clothes. Because we will be working in the kitchen, closed toe shoes are required. An apron will be provided on the first day of camp for each camper. We also request that each camper bring a mask to wear.

What should campers bring each day?

Campers can bring a water bottle and any other preferred beverages to use throughout the day. We will provide all supplies, water & lemonade or punch, and lunch.

Are you taking special precautions for COVID-19?

Yes, please review our Health & Safety Measures.

Do you offer a discount for siblings?

Yes! If you select the Family Ticket to register more than one child at a time, you’ll get a discount of $29 on each ticket. Your discount will be automatically applied at checkout!

Do you offer refunds?

CANCELLATION POLICY: If your child is unable to attend, please inform us as soon as possible. The registration fee is non-refundable, however, if you are able to find another family to fill the spot, we will issue you a refund once the other participant has registered in your place. You are welcome to gift the camp session to another child, and provide us with that person’s name, age, and contact information. Please do so at least 7 days prior to camp so that their personalized items will be ready for them on the first day.

What if I have other questions?

Please reach out if you have any other questions! You can call us Tues. – Fri. during normal business hours at (843) 757-4600 or contact us via email.
