Cooking Camp


Cooking Camp

Your child will take cooking to a whole new level at Cooking Camp! Not only exploring flavours and textures, but they will also be able to recognise ingredients, preparing and cooking everyday starters, mains and desserts from scratch.

Participating in daily masterclasses before tackling recipes, learning basic knife skills and developing their understanding of healthy cooking. Most importantly having fun as they built up their skills to present their work to their parents at our Afternoon Tea session!

Our talented team of professional chefs are led by Head Chef Adam who has over 20 years of chef leadership with 10 years working in hotels & restaurants and 10 years in school catering in Independent Schools. Chef Adam is currently Head Chef at Hoe Bridge School. Alongside teaching the children how to prepare delicious dishes each child will be supplied with their own apron and Hoe Bridge Cooking Camp Recipe Book containing everything they have learnt to take home.

  • This was the first time we have used camp due to a change in our childcare arrangements. The children had the most wonderful week and I'd like to pass on thanks to the team.
