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+. Sessions are divided into two groups: Mini Chefs (ages 6-9) in morning camp (9-12) and Budding Chefs (ages 10-14) in afternoon camp (1-4)

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 session will expose children to a wide variety of recipes – and every day students will make at least one sweet and one savory dish. Snacks and spring water will be provided each day. Recipes will be different across each of our five week-long programs. Our FIVE Weekly Themes include: Summer Foodie Favorites, All-American Road Trip, Baking Bootcamp, Restaurant Week and Bakery Favorites!
