Frequently Asked Questions
What are the age groups for camp?
Our camps are organized into 3 age groups so all chefs team up with their peers. They are: Tiny Chefs ages 4-6, Lil’ Chefs ages 7-9, Teen Chefs ages 10 & up
PLEASE NOTE: Children are divided by age. If you are signing up with a friend – your child, based on the ticket that is purchased, may not be in the same kitchen or group as his or her friend.
Is there an age limit to attend certain camps?
Most camps are half-day with ages 4 and up welcome. There are exceptions:
- Week 4 Chopped Competition (full-day camp): age 9 and up
- Week 7 Baking n Decorating (half-day camp): age 8 & up
- Week 8 State Fair (half-day camp): age 4 to 6
- Week 8 World Cuisines (half-day camp): age 7 & up
If a class/camp is not filled, we will combine age groups as we see appropriate and assign task(s) based on skill level. For our all-day camp, age groups are divided differently due to certain age requirements.

What if my child has food allergies?
Our recipes include gluten, dairy, eggs, fresh herbs and spices as well as protein dishes. We do not offer an alternative for gluten, dairy or eggs. We are a NUT-FREE facility but do use seeds and coconut. Your child will get a chance to eat everything he or she makes so you are responsible for bringing your child’s food allergy/intolerance to our attention.
During the registration process, you will have the opportunity to list this information on your registration form. When registering, please answer these questions:
If your child cannot consume a certain product, can they touch it? Can they be around it?
If your child is allergic to eggs, can he or she consume it in a baked good?
Please consider the menu being created on class day and if you have any questions about the ingredients, please feel free to contact our learning center at 949-679-8390.
