Welcome to the last day of Culinary Camp, Outside of the Lunchbox Week! The day began once again in the garden where the Farm Truck came to visit. A special guest came to show the campers how he grows food, herbs, and flowers in the bed of his pick-up truck! How cool! It really was fun to hear how he came up with the idea and exactly how he goes about maintaining his garden. The kids asked a ton of questions and really loved hearing about the unique garden. A chicken laid an egg the night before so the campers had a blast investigating the exciting arrival.
Today was herb day in the garden so we taught the kids how to make a hand scrub with lavender, allowed them to plant their own basil plants, and took them on an extensive tour of our very own herb garden.
After our last morning in the garden, we walked up to our kitchens for our first half of our cooking. We made Tres Leches Cake (Three Milks Cake) and Mango and Avocado Salsa….YUM!! After our first half of cooking, we headed to the cafeteria for lunch and then outside for a big game of sharks and minnows.
In other news, Milo lost a tooth at lunch!!!
Once physical activity ended and the kids had taken a breather under the shade, we marched back up into the kitchens for our second half of cooking for the day to prepare for our parent party. We made guacamole and spinach and cheese quesadillas and rolled some more sushi. Even though the cooking is now complete, we look forward to sharing all of our food with friends and family at 4pm, see you there 🙂
Thank you campers for a great week, make sure you come back again next year!!
