Full day COOKING + SCIENCE CAMP
for ages 5-12|  Wicker park location

Join us as we partner with The Laboratory for unique full-day cooking and science camps. Kids spend half of their day at The Kids’ Table cooking and half of the day just a few doors down at The Laboratory doing hands-on STEAM projects based on popular themes. 

Week 1 |  Cartoon Fact or Fiction + Real Twists on Kid Classics
Dec 26-29 |  9:00am-3:00pm
At The Laboratory, kids explore whether the adrenaline-filled scenes we see in our favorite cartoons could be real - from speeding car chases, epic sailing journeys, defying gravity, to the power to fly. At The Kids' Table, we'll transform kid classic dishes into real, wholesome (and delicious!) dishes.

Week 2 |  Classic Movie Monsters + Comfort Food!
Jan 2-5 |  9:00am-3:00pm
At The Laboratory, kids use creativity, imagination, and hands-on science to explore the secrets of Count Dracula, engineer their own Frankensteins, discover the chemistry of (friendly!) ghosts, and more. At The Kids' Table, we'll cook up our favorite belly-warming and soul-soothing recipes.

PRICE: $90/day
