Kids' Cooking Boot Camp in NYC

5-Day Course

Kid Cooking Boot Camp

Selfup invites children who have a passion for cooking to join their 5-day summer Bootcamp. This entertaining and interactive program aims to inspire young chefs to explore the fascinating world of culinary arts and acquire new cooking skills in a supportive and collaborative setting.

Conducted in Selfup's state-of-the-art kitchens, your child will be involved in a variety of hands-on cooking classes guided by experienced and enthusiastic instructors. By learning how to prepare mouth-watering meals and desserts, your child will develop the knowledge and confidence to become a creative and skilled home cook.

The Bootcamp also focuses on fostering friendships and teamwork skills as your child collaborates with other aspiring chefs. There are two courses available - one for beginners and the other for more advanced young chefs - to cater to different interests and skill levels.

Each day of the Bootcamp is designed to be enjoyable, engaging, and educational. Your child will depart with a newfound love for cooking and an assortment of recipes and cooking tips to experiment with at home.

The Bootcamp runs for three hours every day, from 9am to 12pm, and on the final day, an extra hour is added for parents to attend and witness their newly graduated chef receiving a completion certificate. The children will also take a group photo to commemorate their time at Selfup's Bootcamp for Kids and cherish the friendships they forged.
