Regularly being outshone in the kitchen by a knife-wielding tween? With a little luck – and the help of our summer camp for kids – you could find yourself relegated to backyard cocktails while your enthusiastic mini-chef prepares a family feast. Every summer, urban element welcomes a gaggle of 9 – 12 year-olds into our kitchen for our wildly popular week-long culinary summer camp. Over the course of the week, budding chefs learn basic cooking skills and techniques, food safety, ingredient selection, and recipe reading and interpretation. We’ll take breaks from the kitchen to select fresh ingredients from the neighbourhood farmer’s market, be inspired by visits from local Chefs and have a chance to take part in some community giving at the Parkdale Food Centre.
The day begins at 9 am and finishes at 4 pm.
