Rata2ee Summer Camps

Rata2ee is a culinary academy offering hands-on instruction in cooking techniques, including: Knife Basics; Cooking Fundamentals, Food Science & Nutrition, Kitchen Safety, Proper Food Handling, Gardening 101 (very basics of gardening), and kids' yoga. This camp teaches a very holistic approach to healthy living. Children will eat 3 meals (making their own breakfast, a 3-course lunch, and dessert), so no packing snacks or lunches for parents! This camp teaches strong character-building skills and is meant for kids going into 2nd through 5th grades. Kids should be able to stand for 90 minutes at a time (with 2 small sit-down breaks), and should be ok with playing outside during non-cooking times of the camp. Items each child needs to bring to camp: a filled (non-glass) 64-oz water bottle labeled with first & last name, 2 8-oz Ziploc to-go containers labeled with first & last name; a full size beach towel, and sunscreen.

Camps run from 8:45 am until 3:30 pm (3 pm on Fridays); Camp cost: $265 per child plus $125 materials fee ($390).
