Kids will be able to create a lunch and snack every day, plus several side dishes for family dinners.

“During camp, we will be practicing social distancing and we’ll be outside for the entirety of the camp,” Chef and Wellness Program Specialist Alexis Phelps said. “The campers will also be asked to bring masks, (will have) their temperature checked when they arrive and there will be no shared materials or touching.”

The cooking camp is for ages 6 to 15 years old and the in-person camp is for ages 7 to 12.

Parents still have time to sign up their kids for either of the two camps on the Botanical Garden website.
