iCook After School

iCook provides fun hands-on after school cooking classes for children ages 6-12yrs. Our mission is simple: to help teach children to love everything about food- cooking, eating delicious and healthy dishes and learning about different cultures, or the stories behind the food. We make every experience fun because we start with great recipes and fresh ingredients, colorful cooking stations and engaging activities. We encourage our little chefs to try new techniques and cuisines, because we understand the importance of mastering life skills at a young age!

Ages: 6 - 12 years

Craft Workshops

Come on your own or with a friend to create a fun seasonal craft for your room, or to give as a gift.

Ages: 6 - 12 years
