“Sent notes, I highly recommend your camp for their grandchildren as well”
5-stars

Hi there,

I just wanted to say how much my granddaughter enjoyed the week she spent in your cooking academy camp. I have already sent several of the pictures to some of my friends with a note that I highly recommend your camp for their grandchildren as well. It was so great to find a hands-on camp, suitable for a wide range of ages, which appeals to all, as well as both males and females.

My daughter and I are always looking for an indoor camp, and yours just fit every requirement we have. And … I must add, the food prepared was delicious. My granddaughter Caralee is a picky eater, so the fact that she at least tried some of the recipes was just fine with us. No complaints from us at all, and the flip side of this is that I got to sample some of what she ended up bringing home. And everything was SOOOO good!

We look forward to coming again. If you have any weeks in session during winter break time for public schools we are certainly interested. One more thing here. Any chance you could open up another location near Miami Lakes? I am quite sure you would do well in that area.

Thanks again,
Susan Gonzalez
“..he couldn’t stop talking about all the delicious foods he made!”
5-stars

This was a first for our son, who was slightly embarrassed to admit his interest in cooking. But, he was thrilled when he found out we signed him up and went eagerly into camp.

Upon pick up, he couldn't stop talking about all of the delicious foods he made! He was so enthusiastic and asked if we owned whisks, a cutting board, a food processor?!? Of course we do, but he had never used them before! Each day he brought home samples of the goodies and loved sharing both the "secret" and healthy ingredients in them. By Friday, he had a whole file of recipes and can't wait to make them for our family!

This has been one of the absolute BEST experiences he has ever had. We're just sorry we didn't sign him up for Week 2 until it was too late!

Thanks for everything :)

“My daughter LOVED this camp!!!”
5 stars

My daughter LOVED this camp!!!

She learned knife skills and also learned healthy food habits. She was so excited to cook & bake every day. My only disappointment was that there wasn't any yoga, only Zumba. Would most likely have my daughter attend this camp again!

Thank you!

“My daughter was truly engaged and excited…”
5 stars

Excellent camp!

My daughter was truly engaged and excited about the kitchen. She wants to help me all the time and be involved in cooking. She truly learned important kitchen skills and improved her pickiness with food. She is less fussy when trying new things. I will definitely come back next year. The chefs were attentive and friendly.

Thank you the Real food academy.
