Know Your Roots Camp


Programming for the Know Your Roots Camp is all in the name. It’s a week of exploring where our food comes from, the journey it takes from field to fork – as well as the role we play as individuals in our food system. Each week, campers will have opportunities to explore our gardens, cook alongside the Growing Chefs! team of professional Chefs, engage in food focused activities and, of course, try some new, delicious foods!

Dates:

Week 1: July 11 – 15Sold Out

Week 2: July 18 – 22Sold Out

Week 3: July 25 – 29Sold Out

Ages:912 (Must be turning 9 years old within the calendar year)

Location: Know Your Roots will be hosted at our new location, The Grove at The Western Fair District, located at 900 King St. This facility is more spacious than our Growing Chefs! Headquarters, with a teaching classroom equipped with audio/​visual supports.

Time:9:00am‑3:30pm (drop off is 8:45am‑9:00am, pickup is 3:30 – 3:45pm)

$325 Growing Chefs! Ontario is committed to providing low-cost food education experiences for children and youth. Lunch and two snacks are included. If cost is a barrier to registration, please contact [email protected]​growingchefsontario.​ca to explore subsidy options.

Masking and Vaccination: Growing Chefs! continues to work closely with Public Health as we begin to transition away from COVID-19 related health and safety protocols for our programming and events. We strongly recommend vaccinations and masking as tools to minimize the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to require masks be worn during food preparation until further notice.

Food Allergies: If food allergies are a concern, rest assured that our team is highly experienced in managing dietary restrictions. Do not let a dietary concern prevent your child from participating in our programming. Get in contact with our staff team and we’ll do our best to make appropriate accommodations.

Cancellations: Once full payment is received and registration is confirmed, any cancellation must be directly communicated to Growing Chefs! Staff as early as possible. Cancellations made once the program has started will be eligible for refunds on a case by case basis.
Subsidy information available upon request.
