About Summer Camp

Little Chef in the Making!

★★★★★
Our 9 year old son has been eager to participate in the kitchen, but my lack of patience and willingness to accept the mess and mistakes made it very difficult. Summer Camp at the RFA has given him the skills, discipline and creativity to flourish. After each day, he’s excited to share with us what he learned and always brings back delicious treats for us to try. This weekend he offered to help me in the kitchen and I could already Notice a big difference in his approach. Our little Chef in the making, we are so proud!

She had an awesome beautiful day!

★★★★★
Hi! I just wanted to let you guys know that my daughter Kaya attended your camp for the first time today. She's 14. Being a teen, she's sometimes hard to please. I picked her up at 3pm AND SHE HAD THE BIGGEST SMILE ON HER FACE. SHE HAD AN AWESOME BEAUTIFUL DAY. Looking forward to the week. Wish there was more. Just wanted to thank you so much. <3

My Boys Loved this Camp!

★★★★★
My two boys, 7 and 8, had a great time at the Real Food Cooking Camp! Each day they were excited to learn what they'd be cooking. They learned about nutrition and had fun getting hands on with food. I hope to be able to send them again in the future!

My son attended summer camp at the Real Food Academy. He had a great time learning cooking essentials, meeting new friends, and trying new foods. He was eager to cook for the family every day. We would definitely try it again! Thank you

My 13 y/o loved it!

★★★★★
I was skeptical with COVID but they followed the rules very well and plenty of space for social distancing! My 13 y/o attended this camp and loved it. It was a great combination of very good food, technique, great Camp leaders and knowledge on nutrition. She is now correcting me on knife technique. She is going back in a couple of weeks for more! Thank you so much!
- Julia Santeliz

- Azin Amirshahi

Amazing camp!

★★★★★
While visiting Miami this summer we signed our son up for camp. He loved it. Always coming home with a goodie he made. Always excited to try and cook it at home. Even starting to make up his own dishes. Thank you for a wonderful camp for our son. Too bad we don’t live here full time.
- K. Willow Ayers

Educational and fun!

★★★★★
My daughter attended camp for one week at the Real Food Academy. She had a great time and learned a lot of new concepts not only about cooking and baking but about nutrition and health. This experience has given her the opportunity to become more independent about her food consumption and to making healthier choices when it comes to food. She now enjoys creating new salads and using fresh and healthy ingredients in her dishes. I highly recommend the experience here!
