Over the last decade, we have taught in over 200 camps offering an edible education to thousands of children. Throughout Colorado, Illinois, and Texas, we work with recreational organizations of all sizes and children of all ages. For some camps, we integrate fully as a part of their daily activities. While for others, we provide hands-on, in-house field trips. We currently work with a host of phenomenal day camp providers:
What we bring to all of our camps and recreational organizations is something truly unique and impactful. Whether camps are one-hour or three-hour themed classes, children discover the joy and fun of cooking, build self-confidence, and learn about recipes and cultures from around the world. As an integral part of our local communities, we strive to inspire, galvanize, and educate our students to become enthusiastic healthy food explorers.

Sticky Fingers Cooking strongly believes in community and the power that it holds for every single person. That is why we have partnered with over 100 non-profits in 11 states. Enriching educational opportunities are vital for the long-term success of children and families. By working with organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts, and other local charities, we have taught thousands of children to cook and enjoy healthy, whole foods.
In addition to offering classes to our non-profit partners, we have also donated thousands of scholarships to homeless children and families living in food deserts. Through our curriculum, vulnerable children are given an opportunity to learn and nourish their bellies in a way that is fun, interactive, and engaging.

Since 2011 we have taught children the joys of cooking. Early on, we realized that our unique curriculum does not require a kitchen. We can cook in just about any venue, including libraries! Cue our Nourishing Literacy Cooks + Books Program. We pair books, or sections of books, with a recipe that brings the overarching theme alive in a tangible way. We have now taught in over 100 libraries spanning 18 states.
One of the best aspects of cooking is the creativity it fosters. With Cooks + Books, children get a double dose of inspiration. First, they listen to the story, envisioning the characters, the culture, and the history. Then, they cook our paired recipe, bringing their vision to life. More often than not, what sprouts from these sessions is a love of reading and a passion for cooking.
Some of our most popular pairings include:

THYME to TURNIP the BEET on what kids eat®! We started our brand partnerships with food producers to educate and inspire families with products we believe in and trust. Families are cooking at home now more than ever, which means they need healthy dinner ideas. One of our goals is to introduce families to branded food products that they can use to bring more creativity to mealtime.
Our brand-sponsored cooking classes harness the power of influencer marketing and scarcity marketing (by offering limited spots in our classes) with the social proof, expertise, and professionalism that only Sticky Fingers Cooking can deliver. It is a unique marketing platform meant to get the attention of media and consumers.
Much more than an influencer post, our sponsored online classes are tangible, hands-on experiences that engage with families and children alike. These classes make it simple, clear-cut, and fun to build brand awareness and loyalty.
Since the beginning, our brand partnership classes have been an absolute success. Our partners often book six months of classes at a time to sold-out audiences.
