HOW TO PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD
(3 DAY CAMP)
July 25, 26, and 27, 10a-2p • $150/child
Tired of hearing, “don’t play with your food,” when you’re at the dinner table? In this week of Simmer Camp, you will experience culinary creativity through edible potions, sneaky vegetable appearances, and baking surprises. You’ll even build food sculptures and channel our inner Harry Potter with kitchen magic.
BACKYARD FARMING (3 DAY CAMP)
July 11, 12, and 13, 10a-2p • $150/child
Gather ‘round and turn the greenhouse and teaching
kitchen into a backyard farm. Learn new ways to grow
things in small spaces and how to use herbs and veggies from your yard or the farmers market. You won’t have to leave the city to get dirty and you’re sure to go home with some new ideas for creating habitats for the smallest helpers in every garden.
MEALS FROM THE MITTEN (4 DAY CAMP)
July 17, 18, 19, and 20, 10a-2p • $180/child

It’s a wonderful time to live in the Mitten State. Fruits and veggies are in their prime so we’ll gather around the table to celebrate Michigan’s bounty. Explore some recipes that are specific to Michigan towns and learn how farmers make the season last longer by preserving the flavors of summer to be enjoyed all year round!
