Send the kids to cooking camp, and they come back with the skills to organize a Chinese banquet?

June 23, 2011 |  8:00 am


This summer, Pali's Overnight Adventures in Lake Arrowhead is offering a culinary camp for kids. This camp teaches kids, ages 9 to 16, the fundamentals of cooking. They will spend their time with professionals in the industry, learning and honing their cooking techniques.

Each day has a theme. Children will learn how to throw a Superbowl party, prepare a Sunday brunch and organize a Chinese banquet. At the end of the session, kids will participate in an "Iron Chef"-style challenge. They will be given a secret ingredient and then proceed to create a dish.

The camp is divided into one- and two-week sessions, running through August. For more information or to sign up, visit www.paliadventures.com. Do you know any other culinarily-minded ways to keep the kids occupied this summer? Let us know in the comments section.
