Looking for a great kid's summer camp program? Are your children always "helping" in the kitchen, asking to bake cookies or a cake? Do they ask you how to cook?

Kids Culinary Camp is perfect for your child. Kids Culinary Camp is a residential summer cooking camp offering one and two-week sessions where kids 10 and up learn a variety of cooking skills in a fun atmosphere with other kids who like to cook.

The Kids Culinary Academy has now expanded its curriculum with an all new Bakeshop. One week sessions are available in just Baking and Pastry Arts. Campers who enroll in this camp will focus on just the Bakeshop.

Imagine your child coming back from summer camp with skills like menu planning, bread and pastry baking, beef and poultry cooking, vegetable cookery, seafood, garnishes, utensil skills, kitchen hygiene and healthy eating habits. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! All of this happens in beautiful Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Founded in 1996 by Chef Kelly Q.Dietrich, the kid's summer cooking camp became so popular that they needed to develop a residential program for their many repeat visitors. And it's not all cooking. Your camper will enjoy many activities including visits to local attractions, some are purely recreational while others are oriented to culinary arts.
