Know Your Roots Day Camp
For the last decade, Growing Chefs! Ontario has delivered food education programs in schools and the community that inspires kids to try new things, be creative, and choose better food. Now its time for us to try something new too!
This summer Growing Chefs! will pilot our very own day camp program called Know Your Roots! The name says it all: it’s a week of exploring where food comes from, where it goes, how it gets there, and how we all fit into that system. Every day campers will have opportunity to explore our Learning Garden, cook their own lunch, serve their friends, and develop new food skills.
Session details are as follows:
Session Dates: July 24 – July 28 or July 31 – August 4
Ages: 7-11 years old
Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm each day with options for early and/or late care at an additional fee.

These shirts are not a registration requirement. (As a non-profit, charitable organization Growing Chefs! is committed to providing accessible food education opportunities to kids.
