Fit2Cook4Kids Camps offer empowering experiences for kids 7 to 15

Fit2cook4Kids campers build confidence and self esteem while having an incredible adventure that combines food, fitness and communication skills.  Professional instructors create empowering, lasting experiences in forty of the most enriching hours campers will spend all summer becoming competent ambassadors of healthful living.

Why Fit2Cook4Kids Camps?

We know of no other camp that for $12.50 per hour will offer healthy breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack prepared by the campers under the supervision of a professional chef, and with much of the food being organic and farm fresh.  Each camp accommodates food allergies in a way that is not noticed by other campers.  The combination of food, fitness and social skills is the recipe for a memorable camp experience with a life-long impact.

What You Can Expect

Professional Chefs & Team

Campers experience training from professional chefs they sometimes get to select.  We invite former campers to interview potential chefs and help make the selection.  This exposes campers to the interview process and is designed to make them better interviewees in the future.

Yoga, Fitness + Fun

Yoga is good for health, mind, body and spirit.  Learning to breathe and relax allows kids to drop into a restful sleep at night.  Waking refreshed to a nutrient dense breakfast puts kids on top of their game at school.  Relaxed focused concentration helps manage stress that all kids experience. 

Communication / Social Skills

Campers learn to articulate with confidence by presenting on food and fitness topics in front of peers.  During the 9:00 AM camp meeting, campers have a chance to make a simple presentation by stating their name, topic and saying three things about their topic to earn them stars that lead to gifts.
