Cooking Camps and Classes


The Prep of South Tampa is excited to announce we will have a new kitchen just in time for our summer camps! We are offering cooking camps every week during the summer and are introducing 2 new themes! Our camps are for children entering 5th grade through 8th grade in fall 2018. Please see the list of themes below and decide which ones work for you! We can't wait to see you! 

Summer 2018 Cooking Camp Themes & Dates

Intro to Cooking - June 4-8 & July 9-13:  Want to be in your very own Master Chef episode? The camp is a perfect adventure for any child who loves to eat and wants to learn to cook!  Activities and cooking experiments allow aspiring chefs to explore the science behind cooking while learning cooking basics. Your young chef will learn to scramble eggs, make a fabulous grilled cheese, create decadent cupcakes and more…all while learning how to work safely in the kitchen!  No experience necessary.  

Comfort Foods Cooking Camp - June 11-15 & July 16-20: There are a few universal foods that we ALL love…and we are going to show you how to make them! Who doesn’t love Macaroni and Cheese? What’s better than a Smoothie after a hard day at school? How could anyone pass up S’mores Pie? Dig into a Tater Tots Breakfast Bowl on a lazy Saturday morning! This camp will have your child whipping up your favorites in no time while having fun and learning how to work in the kitchen. 

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner - June 18-22 & July 23-27: Everyone needs 3 square meals a day and there’s no better time to learn how to make them than the present! Your child will learn practical recipes that s/he will be able to cook for the entire family in this amazingly tasty camp! Impress guests with an extravagant Lasagna, whip up some pancakes for a wholesome breakfast and enjoy leftovers with a Spinach Casserole…just to name a few! We can’t wait to show you what YOU can do! 

Around the World Cooking Camp - June 25-29 & July 30-Aug. 3: Join us while we travel the globe in search of the world’s most delicious meals! Each day we will journey to a new continent and learn to make an entire meal – appetizer, dinner and dessert – from different countries within that continent! Learn to make Stromboli from Italy, Stir-Fry from China, Empanadas from Argentina and more! It’s a foodie’s dream come true! Campers will be handling raw meat in this camp. 

The Prep offers two time options: 9am-1pm $279 or 8am-5:30pm $399 (cooking camps include a $50 supply fee)
