If it's one thing we are fully aware of at The Real Food Academy (especially summer camp) is that older kids don't want to be involved with younger kids. Not only will we not put older kids with younger kids, we will always have younger children with kids their own age and will always be participating in activities that are suitable and safe for their age.
All the recipes prepared at The Real Food Academy are easily accessible from our website at https://therealfoodacademy.com/our-recipes/ You can simply type the name of the recipe in the search field to find the recipe your are looking for. If you can't remember the exact name...no problem. Just type in the main ingredient and you will quickly receive a list of all the recipes that include that main ingredient. If for some reason you require a printed copy of the recipe, please request it from the chef and they will happily provide it to you.

About Summer Camp

last week of cooking summer camp

My daughter loved the camp and she really learned a lot. She especially loved learning how to make ravioli. She did mention that some groups had better experiences than others, depending on the confidence level and experience of each "table chef". That was an interesting comment. Also, you used to provide a cookbook for the children at the end of the week - - what happened? We really wanted to recreate some of the yummy things she made, especially the polvorones (Mexican wedding cookies) and the ravioli, of course! Over all, thanks so much for providing a GREAT program for busy parents.

We will definitely come back!

Everything about The Real Food Academy is great. The staff, the place, the cleanliness, the recipes, the cafè...Our 5-year-old loved coming here for their Summer Camp. Between cooking and other activities, days hit the perfect balance of life skills and fun. We will definitely come back!

Wonderful Camp!

My children, ages 9 and almost 5, really enjoyed the summer camp. The older kids are given the opportunity to meal plan and cook for a "competition" with teammates, and the younger kids are given plenty of assistance to cook. Both of my kids said the food was delicious! We will definitely be back next summer.

Great camp experience

My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter were at a few different camps this summer - this one, The Frost Museum and The Children's Museum. This was by far their favorite. Each day, both kids went into the class excited, and when I picked them up in the afternoon, they were happy and eager to tell me what they did that day. The price of this camp is a bit on the high side but the kids make their own breakfast, snack and lunch each day, so that's a hassle and expense you don't have to worry about. At home, I have noticed that they want to help in the kitchen more and they have become interested in reading food labels and looking for healthy options. And finally, every single time I had a question or concern and called their contact number, the owner, Arthur picked up the phone and addressed my concern. His wife Chef Maria works with the kids. She often followed up in person as well. If you are on the fence, send your kids to this camp. You won't regret it!

Amazing camp

My two boys, Fabian and Adrian, had a great time and the Real Food Academy summer camp. They really enjoyed arriving to make their own breakfast each morning. They also looked forward to the daily recipes they would be making for lunch. Their favorite day was the day they made cupcakes!

Amazing camp. Love it !!

I really loved the camp and so did my daughter. My only concern is the amount of sugar and carbs (white flour) they are getting. Anyways, i will highly recommend the camp and will probably enroll my daughter in some afterschool activities. Love all the healthy options and how much they are learning.

She made great friends. A win win!
