Expedition Kitchen Summer Camp 2024

“I watch cooking change the cook, just as it transforms the food.”

– Laura Esquivel

We are offering a variety of hands-on cooking camps this summer in the SF Bay Area, California! 

We've got a line-up of fun and magical camps planned for this summer. Your kids are sure to have a blast, develop autonomy, and take home some important life skills this summer. We teach real-world, skills-based culinary techniques that will inspire your child to explore new ingredients and flavors, develop lifelong healthy relationships with food, and learn the ins and outs of the culinary world from industry pros. They will come home excited to share their new skills with your family! 

We believe the kitchen is a safe and fun place to explore, ask questions, and learn. Food connects the family and the community and cooking for others shows that we care. We are excited to offer a fun and safe environment for your kids to express themselves confidently, learn new skills, and explore with all of their senses this summer. This will be an experience they will never forget. 8 action-packed weeks of camps in 2 locations! Space is limited, register through Albany and Piedmont Parks and Rec. Registration is open!

"I had a lot of fun at this cooking camp. My mom loved that she didn’t have to feed me and she got to sample what I was cooking each day. I loved that so many of the recipes offered us a chance to customize the dishes to our taste, and that I learned a lot of new cooking skills."

-Charlie K. (Happy Camper)

"I've never heard my 10-year-old so excited about a camp before! She comes home so enthusiastic about cooking, collaborating with other chefs, and creating new meals!  Alicia is incredibly well-organized -- as a parent, I'm so grateful. "

- Rachel S.
