Summer Baking Camp 2019

Summer Baking Camp is still in session! Ambrosia’s Baking Camp combines fun and baking for your JuniorChef from Aug. 12th-Aug. 17th.

If you’re looking for a great camp for your kids this summer, this is a perfect, very hands-on cooking and baking camp. Kids and teens love to cook and explore new foods, especially with the popularity of cooking shows. In this week-long camp, your child will learn about simple recipes that they can use at home, while also teaching them to learn how to use cooking utensils safely, be organized, learn the importance of accurate measurements in baking, and to clean as they cook.

These camps fill up quickly, so don’t delay registering your child.

Please let us know after registration if your child has any food allergies or other special needs. Please have your child wear closed-toe shoes and tie back any long hair.

Your child will go home each day with baked goods they made that day, and on Friday each child will receive a certificate of completion and something prepared to share with their families.

This summer’s camps will be taught by Christy Spradley from Christy’s Cakery. She owns and operates her baking business and runs an online ETSY shop as well. You can learn more about her creations on her website or see her creative designs on Instagram.

The baker support staff ratio is 4:1, so your child will have a one on one experience throughout each baking activity.

A typical day will be as follows (with some variations due to different baking times):

8:00 – 9:00 Healthy Snack
9:00 – 12:00 Baking activities 1 & 2
12:00 -12:45 Lunch
12:45 – 3:30 Baking activities 3 & 4
3:30 – 4:00 Clean up
4:00 6:00 (aftercare)

Monday’s session will begin with baking basics and orientation from 9-10:30, and we will begin with 1 baking activity that morning instead of two. These basics will include Kitchen Rules, Safety & Sanitation and an Introduction to Math & Measurements.

When: August 12th – August 16th (8 A.M. – 4 P.M.)
After Care Available: 4 P.M.-6 P.M.
Where: West Catholic Preparatory High School 4501 Chestnut St. 19149 3rd Floor Teaching Kitchen
