Join us at The Flavor Labs, a kitchen where children can experiment with food while having fun!  We are excited to announce Summer Camp for both Norwood and Paramus locations for ages 6+. 

Similar to our classes, our camp has a mission to change the way children engage with food. Our camp will incorporate elements of science and math, while also harnessing your child’s creativity as we work our way through different ingredients, cuisines and techniques. 

Each week-long camp session will expose children to a wide variety of recipes – and every day will include at least one sweet and one savory dish for campers to eat and/or take home.  Snacks and spring water will be provided each day.   Recipes will be different across each of our four programs.

We will have camp in two age groups: Mini Chefs (ages 6-9) in our morning camp from 9am-12pm; and Budding Chefs (ages 10-13) in our afternoon camp from 1pm-4pm.  Check out our website for week by week programming details, including Cooking Techniques, Baking Bootcamp, Art of Cooking, and Science of Baking sessions.  We look forward to creating some delicious food with your children!

Do you speak another language at home or would like to give your child the gift of another language? You are not alone.  Children learn best when language is learned within a cultural context and while they’re busy having fun with other children their age!

Our Language Day Camps are offered in Spanish, Italian and French for Pre-K to Rising 6th graders.  Children are divided by age/grade and proficiency level for PreK II, Gr. K-2 and Gr. 3-5 groups.  6-week camp offered for Summer 2023 with a minimum 2-week enrollment period.  Short- and longer-day options available.

Our Hola Amigos™ camp program promotes love for the Spanish language through cultural themes that focus on target subcultures including the Caribbean, South America, Spain and the U.S. Hispanic culture.

Our Ciao Amici™ camp program promotes love for the Italian language through cultural themes that focus on target subcultures including the Italian constituency of Argentina & Chile, Northern and Central Italy, Southern Italy and parts of Switzerland.

Our Bonjour Les Amis™ camp program  promotes love for the French language through cultural themes that focus on France and target subcultures in Africa, Canada, West Indies and Louisiana.

Our Northern New Jersey location in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ is within close proximity to Rockland County.  Our personalized and immersion-based approach to teaching ensures that children are engaged in the learning journey.  Awaken your child to the beauty of learning another language or engage their senses in discovering their cultural heritage.  Children’s brains are like sponges and it is best to start them as early as possible.  Accredited by the Middle States Association, Commission on Elementary Schools (MSA-CESS), PreK-PS.

Come learn from a team of instructors whose native tongues originate from diverse cultural backgrounds where the language is spoken.

Select intensive and semi-intensive grade level classes will also be offered for Gr. K-5, Gr. 6-8 and Gr. 9-12 during the 6 week camp.
