Explore the wonders of nature at the Gardens during our Family Fun Days, Summer Camps and other programs.



Kids Cooking Camp: Session 2

Ages 9-11, Monday–Friday, 7/15–7/19, 1 pm–4 pm, $150

Chefs-in-training will learn basic knife skills, practice kitchen safety, read recipes, measure, bake, chop, and fold to create delicious treats with Tamara Read from Chantilly Tea.  Campers will work in teams and on their own to complete a variety of hands-on projects and fun crafts. Each day will incorporate a theme, such as Kitchen Skills, No-Bake Cooking Day, Scones, Cupcakes (baking from scratch and decorating with their own fondant flowers), and Tarts & Quiches. Kids will get to eat their treats, as well as take some home.  We cannot accommodate special diets.  Please contact Tamara for information about specific menu items at info@chantillytea.com.
