Bay Area Summer Camps

JOIN SPROUTS FOR OUR 11th ANNUAL SUMMER CAMPS!


Our week-long camps are an intensive culinary experience chock-full of hands-on cooking classes in restaurants, farm harvests, field trips, camper cook-offs, blindfolded palate play…and so much more! Sprouts’ aspiring chefs will work alongside guest chefs with experiences at some of the hottest restaurants in the Bay Area such as Delfina, Slanted Door, Penrose, Boulevard, and Tartine Bakery!

This year we will be hosting a whoppin’ 13 weeks of Summer Camps! Camps run all of June, July, and August. Campers can select one-week camp sessions that go from Monday–Friday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. You’d be crazy not to join in our culinary frenzy this summer – it’s gonna be ridiculously delicious!

Throughout the day, kids will visit different restaurants, markets, farms, and venues in the East Bay, San Francisco and beyond! Aspiring chefs can sign up for an East-Bay or SF-based week. For East Bay Camps, all drop-offs and pick-ups will take place East Bay. For all SF camp weeks, drop-off’s and pickups will remain in SF.  A typical day includes cooking with real chefs, reinforcing knife and safety skills through hands-on cooking, whipping up lunch and tasting our creations throughout the day. We will learn how to taste and smell our way through improvisational cooking as well as learn favorite recipes and dishes of our culinary friends. We will meet and cook with farmers and artisans all over the Bay Area, and forge relationships with local chefs and purveyors.

Children 7-12 are welcome to apply as a camper, and teens ages 13-15 are encouraged to apply for our Junior Counselor (JC) positions, depending on the age range of the week. JC registration and payment is the same as campers. Up to two junior counselors are selected for each session to help serve as a liaison between the chef and the campers, and help with the more difficult techniques. Each week-long camp session will have 10-1 6 campers with a counselor ratio of 3:1. Classes are led by guest chefs, and assisted by food and nutrition-loving counselors, from UC Berkeley, Paris, and across the US!
