Get your kids in on a little home-ec action this summer

Sticky Fingers Cooking will host dozens of themed summer camps along the Front Range for Denver and Boulder kids. From fundamental techniques and the art of plating to emulsification, classes are designed for beginners and experts alike, and recipes are carried out in groups, as a team.

In addition to cooking 10 meals, kids who enroll in a week-long session also participate in crafts and activities during the three-hour camp day. All camps are allergen friendly and nut-free, and 10 online classes are also available. Only one registration is needed per household, making it easy for siblings to join.

As Sticky Fingers Cooking founder and CEO Erin Fletter put it, “It’s about so much more than cooking. The kids are truly immersed in every aspect of learning to make delicious food from scratch as they read stories that inform recipes, taste new flavors, hear new languages based on recipe origins, and engage in crafts related to each dish.”

Cooking can also provide lessons in science, math, geography and nutrition — not to mention persuade picky eaters to try new things. In a Sticky Fingers classroom, kids get a chance to develop soft skills such as teamwork and sharing; plus, they’ll learn to clean up after themselves.

If you’ve ever struggled with the dreaded summer slide – i.e., that learning setback that can happen when children forget academic material after extended school breaks – following recipes is a sneaky way to get kids to read while following directions in recipes. All Sticky Fingers cookbooks (available on Amazon) are designed to bring in-class learning to families.

Sticky Fingers isn’t the only spot for kids to learn cooking skills: Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, which typically specializes in adult cooking classes, is hosting four week-long camps this summer: two for kids ages 8 to 12 and two for teens. Classes, which explore the fundamentals of either cooking or baking, begin at 9 a.m., with students making their own breakfast, and end at 2 p.m. as they enjoy a chef-prepared lunch.

Cook Street owner Lindsey Reese wanted to make it a priority to get kids into her kitchen because cooking is “a self-reliance skill,” she said, and also a lost art. “If you start from a young age, the intimidation factor with the kitchen is never a problem,” she added. Classes, she said, are all about “creating comfort in the kitchen that will last their entire lives.”
