VeryVera Cooking Camp

 
For over 15 years, VeryVera Cooking Camp has provided a unique summer camp experience for children ages 6-10. Students attend a one-week session where they master cooking skills, etiquette, and life lessons that will create “layers of success” for their future.
 
Beaufort Academy is excited to be hosting the VeryVera camp for students ages 6-10. Four weekly VeryVera Cooking Camps will be available this Summer in two different cooking levels; pre-beginner and beginner. VeryVera Cooking Campers spend 5 days learning about food, getting hands-on in the kitchen, packaging their treats, and learning entrepreneurship in the process. Practicing and understanding the importance of etiquette and teamwork are incorporated into the daily activities. 
 
The class will run Monday through Friday of the designated week. All week, the students will be preparing for our Brunch/Lunch Banquet on Friday and serving their special guests using all the manners and etiquette learned throughout the week. On Friday, campers can invite one adult guest to the Brunch/Lunch Banquet. This is a great experience for all kids, and we are so happy to be the exclusive host in Beaufort, SC. Camp will take place in the Beaufort Academy cafeteria and kitchen.
 
Registration is now OPEN for students ages 6-10. Only 12 spots available per week.
 
 
 
Pre-Beginners class will be held for our youngest chefs ages 6-7 years of age. We will be mastering novice-level skills in the kitchen along with making every recipe one to remember. Beginning at 9 a.m. and concluding at noon each day, we will be in preparing 3+ new recipes, gaining hands-on kitchen experience, crafting new ways to decorate and package our fabulous treats, learning a bit more about some of the foods we eat from a natural state, and mastering manners and etiquette to use in an everyday setting.

The class will run Monday through Friday of the designated week. All week the students will be preparing for our Brunch Banquet on Friday and serving their special guests using all the manners and etiquette learned throughout the week.

Please have your children wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals) and shirts with sleeves. All long hair will need to be pulled back with a ponytail holder or a rubber band.

Camp recipes could potentially contain any of the following allergens: Milk, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat, and Soybeans. We will do our best to accommodate your child’s dietary restriction, but there are cases where a camper may be given a separate activity to avoid potential contamination.

We cannot wait for our little chefs to join us for big fun, so sign up now for your DEPOSIT to ensure that your spot is saved! A balance due will be required 1 month prior to camp starting.
