If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Get in the Kitchen!

Summer Cooking Workshops at Compass

Food is a fun part of summer vacation! Create lasting memories with summer celebrations like barbeques, picnics, and potlucks. Cool off with refreshing summer flavors like watermelon, peach, strawberry, and coconut. Kids can participate in these traditions while learning important life skills in Compass’s summer cooking workshops. Workshops meet just 1, 2, or 3 days, and all are half-day (3 hours) so you can schedule around your other camps and vacations. Review the Summer Workshop Schedule to find the delicious menus, dates, times, and details for workshops such as:

  • Food Truck Favorites
