By combining cultural education and cooking, children learn cooking skills while experiencing a country's culinary flavors. Cooking is 100% hands on. Everyone dices, juices, chops, sautés and participates. After cooking, we eat as a group and discuss how the flavors are indicative of the country of the day. (All recipes are 100% nut free. Please specify if your child has other allergies.) Hosted by Cooking Round the World.

Enter the magical world of puppetry through hands-on crafts, exploration, and performance workshops. Each day, students will make puppet crafts and explore different styles of puppetry through various media. On the final day, students will present a variety show using the puppets they've made throughout the program. Hosted by Fool Moon Puppetry Arts.

Food science fun! This week includes the development of new recipes and the process to produce the best-tasting results. Learn why 350 degrees is the optimum baking temperature, how to mix and measure, and why we level measurements to have recipes come out perfect. Then, test your luck in making a soufflé! (All recipes are 100% nut free. Please specify if your child has other allergies.) Hosted by Rainbow Chefs.

8:30 am–12:00 pm $200
8:30 am–3:00 pm $300
8:30 am–5:30 pm $350
When kids create, they express themselves. And when kids build, they solve problems. Tomorrow's architects, engineers, and artists will spend the week designing and building with Legos, using hands-on activities that are built on math and science skills. Hosted by Play-Well TEKnologies.
