About Cooking Like a Chef Day Camp

The Cooking Like a Chef Day Camp targets kids aged 9 to 14 and aims to enhance their knowledge of healthy food choices and culinary skills. Participants will learn to make cost-effective and healthy versions of cultural foods, engaging in food demos, nutrition activities, and shared meals with 4-H ambassadors, adult leaders, and volunteers.

The camp promotes interactive learning through meal prep, food tasting, and self-management techniques. Each participant gets a manual covering kitchen basics, safety, recipes, and nutrition. The program, sponsored by the Walmart Foundation, is available to counties that participated in the Healthy Habits Summit.

Costs vary by county, and the camp locations depend on kitchen availability.
