Frequently Asked Questions

About Summer Camp

Click the + symbol to reveal answers to the questions.

No.  Sending your camper to our cooking camp with food would be like bringing sand to the beach! Campers will prepare breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack daily.  Immediately upon completing the booking, we will contact you to find out if we need to be aware of any food allergies or restrictions.

No.  All Payments and Deposits are non-refundable: When a payment or deposit is made, that day and time is no longer available to other customers on our calendar. For that reason, all payments and deposits are non-refundable.

In the case of a cooking class, the ingredients are shopped for and prepped in advance.  Staff is also scheduled according to the number of people on the roster.

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.

Customer Praise

About Summer Camp

Fantastic

★★★★★
They had so much fun and want to come back next year for sure! Thank you
- Melanie Goldenberg

Great camp

★★★★★
My son is 8 years old and he is not a big eater, very conservative, simple dishes, no interest in cooking. This camp was recommended to us by a friend. We had an idea, that working with food, cooking , kitchen kind of experience will help him feel more easy in trying new dishes and new food. My son loved camp, every morning he was rushing to academy, he told us , that he had lots of joy, he liked atmosphere and people. I was very happy to see him being so proud of himself, when he treated us with the food, he’d cooked. Registration process and communication with staff was very easy and smooth. Now I am thinking of taking classes myself.
- Varvara

Amazing & Fun camp for kids!!

★★★★★
Such a fun camp for kids! My daughter learned so many new skills and was very proud to come home and share what she learned (and made) in the kitchen. She even learned how to set the table for meals. It’s been a huge success. She is actually sad for summer camp to end and can’t wait to go back next year!
- Diana

Cooking camp- huge success

★★★★★
My daughter had a wonderful week! She would come home and talk about everything she did and what she had learned! She has already asked me to join the camp next summer again!
- Sofia

Excellent and Fun Camp!

★★★★★
I sent my 5 and 7 year old daughters to The Real Food Academy summer camp and they had the absolute best time! They came back home everyday so incredibly excited to tell me about what they learned and what they cooked which included pasta from scratch, various soups, pancakes, omelettes, salads, and hamburgers to name a few. My daughters even recited cooking "rules" to me such as "you can't cut raw chicken and vegetables on the same cutting board" I was so impressed! They had an amazing and fun week at the cooking camp and we look forward to joining again next summer.
- Michelle L
