SUMMER CAMP, 2017!

Bay Leaf Kitchen summer camps teach hands-on cooking basics with a focus on fresh and healthy ingredients. Every week-long session includes an overnight farm trip where we will harvest vegetables, cook, play in the dirt and camp out at a local farm. Each session offers unique programming, making Bay Leaf Kitchen Camp ideal for kids who want to do multiple sessions. While each camp differs in activities and guests, every session of Bay Leaf Kitchen Summer Camp offers experiences rooted in community, sustainability and play!
