2017 Summer Camp


“A Little Yumminess Around the World Cooking camp was rated the best camp of the summer by our 6 year old. I don’t cook often at home so having the opportunity to explore everything from knife skills to rolling sushi was pure joy for our child. In addition to the fun had & skills learned, there was a beautiful community aspect that was interwoven into sharing meals and cultural connections around food.”

[All camps are nut-free and are designed to accommodate vegetarians as well. Please contact us prior to registering your child regarding other dietary restrictions. Email us at alittleyum@yahoo.com]

Cost: $495 per session ($445 + $50 materials fee)

All classes take place at Bethany United Methodist Church (Sanchez Street at Clipper in Noe Valley, San Francisco). Early & extended care are not available. No need to pack anything, except a water bottle & an apron. Campers will make their own snacks and lunch each day! Please let us know if your child has any dietary restrictions.

Our camp is well suited for kids who thrive in a structured environment. We’ve put much thought into creating the kind of camp that we’d love to send our own kids to. We keep our camps small in size and teach each camp ourselves with the help of our trusted and experienced staff along with a few amazing junior counselors.

Cook the Cookbook: Bay Area Chefs (entering 4th-7th grades)  

We’ll explore a variety of cooking skills and flavors while taking inspiration from some of our favorite local chefs.  

  • Each day we’ll plan and make a meal inspired by celebrated Bay Area chefs including Alice Waters, Charles Phan & Deborah Madison.
  • The last day of camp will be a friendly team cook-off where campers put the skills and ideas they’ve learned into action.
  • Not only will campers practice a variety of essential cooking skills throughout the week, they will craft each meal from concept to execution including planning, budgeting and shopping.
  • Campers will also create their own custom cookbook to take home.

Around the World (entering 1st-4th grades) 

We’re going traveling with our tummies as our tour guides! From Malaysia to Cuba to Greece, this camp will take a tour of some of our favorite cuisines around the world, focusing on a different cuisine or country each day. Campers will transport themselves from San Francisco to places far away through a variety of engaging cooking projects. We’ll taste interesting ingredients from around the world and learn and practice a variety of cooking skills while cooking global recipes that we will enjoy together at snack and lunch time.

Throughout the week our campers will:

  • Take a culinary tour of Singapore/Malaysia, Greece, Cuba, Scandinavia & Mexico.
  • Taste classic ingredients from around the world during guided tastings
