2019 Tween Summer Camps at the Greensboro Children's Museum
Summer camps for ages 11-14 are offered through GCM’s Cooking School and focus on cooking from scratch using local, seasonal ingredients — many from our half-acre garden. Campers will spend time in the garden and kitchen to gain a greater understanding of how food is grown and deepen their appreciation for the ingredients used. Each student receives personal attention and guidance from our knowledgeable teachers during the camp’s hands-on cooking instruction.
Cuisines of the World
Week of June 24 | 11-14 years

Week of July 15 | 11-14 years
For our intermediate to advanced chefs, we’re continuing to step up our curriculum with an increased emphasis on cooking technique and utilizing seasonal produce from the garden.

A final competition will be held on the last day with local chef judges. Previous cooking experience highly recommended. Register now!
