Gardeners and Chefs#

Features Allergy Aware and Teen Options

Join us for a week of gardening and cooking at the Gardens on Spring Creek. We will spend the week learning about the garden, making fun recipes, caring for the plants that flavor our foods and making our own book of recipes to take home!

All of our Gardeners and Chefs camps are vegetarian and safe for students with allergies. We choose our recipes each week based on the registered students’ allergies and food sensitivities, avoiding unsafe foods and food processers.

We have one group below reserved specifically for students with severe food allergies or health related conditions that makes certain foods unsafe. This camp will be shaped around creating an extra safe space to share and normalize our experiences around food. Please only register for this camp if your child qualifies.

All ingredients will be sent to parents for approval before camp and modifications can be made.
