Programming for Know Your Roots is all in the name. It’s a week of exploring where food comes from, where it goes, how it gets there – and how we fit into that system. Every day, campers will have opportunities to explore our kitchen garden, cook their own lunch, serve their friends, and try something new! Please see the information package for a better idea of our program offerings! 


Know Your Roots will run for two separate sessions  in 2017: 

  • July 24 - July 28
  • July 31 - August 4

Registration fees covers one week of programming. We do not offer day-by-day registration at this time. For details on our absence/late and extended care policies, please view the PDF information package. 


Camp will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm with the option of extended morning  and evening care beginning at 8:30am and going until 5:30 (for additional fees).


To ensure every camper has maximum opportunity to interact with our chef team and program staff, the capacity of Know Your Roots will be approximately 24 children. Campers must be between ages 7 and 11 during their week with us. Please note that our location is not yet an accessible space. Please contact us if accessibility is a concern.


Cost includes all programming fees (field trips, materials, etc.), as well as lunch and snacks for the entire session.Camp t-shirts are also available for an optional fee of $15 (shirts are not a requirement of registration). As a non-profit, charitable organization, Growing Chefs! Ontario is committed to providing low cost food education experiences for children. If cost is a barrier to registration, please contact our team to explore subsidy options.
