The Chopping Block offers kids’ and teens’ summer cooking camps to get your child cooking!
These programs provide an opportunity for budding chefs to get comfortable and have fun in the kitchen, working with recipes geared for their age group. Kids 7 to 11 years old have their choice of three different five-day Kids’ Camps, featuring hands-on cooking and lots of eating! We will focus on following recipes, working cleanly and safely in the kitchen, and exploring new foods.
We also offer three five-day camps for teens age 12 to 16 to experience, hands-on, cooking simple yet sophisticated menus that they can recreate at home. They will learn the basics of knife skills, menu planning, and organizing prep work. We wrap up the week with a team cooking competition!
See the full schedule here. All camps take place at our Lincoln Square location and can be taken in any order.
Registration is open now. Call 773-472-6700 or sign up online.
If you have a teen who is really serious about cooking, check out our new Teen Boot Camp held at The Chopping Block at the Merchandise Mart this summer. It’s a five-day intensive deep dive into the fundamentals of cooking that will last a lifetime!
