World Travelers Cooking Camp

July 22 @ 8:30 am - July 26 @ 4:00 pm


Pack your bag and let’s get exploring!

Children will travel the world and encounter a different country every day of the week through maker projects, artistic masterpieces, traditional games, and authentic foods, as they gain math, science, and cooking skills. Hands-on cooking lessons are built into the daily schedule.

This isn’t your typical make-pizza-bagels-and-ice-cream-sundaes kiddie “cooking” class, either. The program will highlight a different country on each of the five camp days, highlighting traditional foods and recipes that campers will bring home each day to share with their family.

Each cooking class, approximately 75-90 minutes, will be built into our daily camp schedule.

During this week-long camp, all the ingredients are pre-measured and included for campers to learn about how people live in different places around the world!



Museum members receive a $25 discount on all classes.


Age & Participation: This camp is designed for children in grades 2-5

8:30 AM – Drop-off // 4:00 PM – Pick-up

Price Per Child: $375

Campers will need to bring a lunch, two snacks and a water bottle daily.

Pricing is designed for one week of programming.
