This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.


Hostess with the Mostess

Do you have a chef who loves to entertain and serve? This is the camp for them! This week we are sharing our favorite tricks and your chef will entertain with the best of them! From charcuteries and butter boards to mocktails and dips to tablescapes and other little niceties and even to dessert trays… Your chef does not want to miss this!!! Your chefs will get to use different tools and techniques and will get to sample all of their creations. Rumor has it they’ll go home with a few things to share and keepsakes. After all, every good hostess makes sure “everybody feels like they’re somebody”! So, grab a friend or two and mingle with us for the week. Materials: Each chef will get surprise keepsakes throughout the week that they’ll be able to use for future entertaining. 


Everyday's a Celebration 

Join us as we find a reason to celebrate every day! One of our favorite things to do is to stay up to date with holidays, both conventional and “National Day” days. We want you to join our excitement. Each day will be different leaving so much opportunity for learning and making new things. Think “National Fair Food Day” , “National French Fry Day”, or “National Pick Blueberries Day”. There’s so much more to celebrate, but you get the idea. And, you know The Crafty Chef Academy will have a cute spin on whatever day it is. We can hardly wait and hope you’ll celebrate, too! Lunch will be made and served so “no kid left hungry”. Bonus, you might get someone excited to talk on the ride home because they’ll have so much to share from the fun facts we learn this week. 

The Cupcake Café

This might just be our all time favorite thing to do, decorate cupcakes! 
Today we are transforming the kitchen into a cupcake cafe and turning cupcakes into fabulous edible art. Cupcakes will be the canvas, but the sky’s the limit. From buttercream to fondant to other clever tricks, your budding pastry chef will be so proud to show off their masterpieces. Pastry chefs will leave with plenty of cupcakes to share. And, because we like to “sprinkle kindness everywhere we go“ and “bake the world a better place”, your chef will help us make birthday cake kits to donate to the Chester County Food Bank during this workshop, too!  “There’s tremendous happiness in making other people happy”. Materials: Each chef will get their own decorating kit to keep.
