‘Kids Culinary Camp’ gives lessons for cooking, life
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Educators are cooking up lessons for students that are out of school for the summer.
UW-La Crosse’s Kids Culinary Academy is teaching kids about how to prepare meals, along with kitchen safety.
The three-day camp for 6th to 8th graders helps to develop math, reading and time management skills.
The Academy comes as part of UW-La Crosse’s Summer Day Camp series.
The mutli-day camp gives kids a chance to gain skills they can take out of the kitchen.
“The first day, I think it’s sort of the social skills, so they’re always really quiet in the morning and then in the afternoon, it starts to be a lot friendlier, but it teaches them kind of things on the fly,” said registred dietician Jessica Harke.
The Culinary Academy continues late this week with a two-day baking event.
Details about the camps is available on the U-W La Crosse website.
