Jun 21, 2021 - Aug 20, 2021
1:00pm - 3:00pm EDT
This camp runs June 21 - 25, July 19 - 23, and August 16 - 20.
This is our “all-ages” camp meant for kids who love baking and want to do a little good in their community this summer. Spend a week with us creating some favorite summer treats (mostly sweet, but we’ll touch on savory snacks like crackers and savory scones) and learning new tricks in your kitchen.
Each day we’ll bake classic treats and do a deep dive exploration into their fundamental lessons. By the end we’ll have made a few batches of goodies to sell at a charity bake sale and lemonade stand (you can schedule it anytime; we’ll include an option to freeze for later) to benefit an organization of each camper’s choice. We’ll even throw in a few entrepreneurial lessons about budgeting, pricing, and marketing!
****We discourage single-day drop-ins for this camp since each day’s activity builds on the next, culminating in a bake sale event.****

Great teacher enthusiasm and explanations. Good recipes that seem universal
When students or families are unprepared and take up a lot of class time on individual issues, it takes away from the experience of those who come prepared. If the staff can enforce rules that questions pertaining to the class be asked live and those that don’t are on chat with a dedicated instructor, that would make the class more enjoyable and fully experienced by the majority of the kids.

Our class was fantastic. The instructor was truly excellent — a real chef with real professional kitchen experience. She was patient and friendly and taught all sorts of interesting and important concepts, like knife skills, the Maillard reaction and how to adapt a recipe if needed. The meal was healthy and delicious. We will definitely do it again!
Nothing — you guys nailed it!

The clear organization of everything from the directions sent ahead of time to the full-on engagement of the cooking experience. Instructor was EXCELLENT. We will definitely do this again and share with others.
It’s brilliant as is!

Kate, the teacher, was super engaging and encouraging. There's a lot to do and she did a great job of not making kids feel rushed and personally interacting with them on their progress.
Nothing really. My daughter is on the youngest end of the spectrum and since this was her first class we had to help her with certain things and the pace was quick at times. But I think that's good because she'll continue to grow and develop if she sticks with it.

About The Dynamite Shop (Cooking Classes)
We started as a culinary social club for children and their families in a Park Slope, Brooklyn storefront with a teaching kitchen, cook's library, photo and video studio, backyard garden and a cafe up front. That was in 2017. In 2020 everything changed and we pivoted online.
Our goal is to help the rising generation of cooks find their niche in food, to celebrate the diversity of our communities and the wider world, and to develop positive relationships around food. Consider us Home Ec 2.0: we champion an old fashioned reverence of the table and offer a cool, supportive place to unplug, but we also embrace technology in the ways it can foster creativity and connection.
The Dynamite Shop empowers kids to express themselves through the lens of food, so we’re not just cooking lasagna and bibimbap to bring home for dinner--we’re learning about regional variations, live-streaming with chefs, watching and creating videos, and exploring how food intersects with culture and community.
Our core curricula is the Dynamite Dinner Club where kids gather in our Zoom kitchen to cook dinner for their families and learn real life cooking skills in the process. Beyond Dinner Club, we're a community that revolves around food: We offer cooking classes for the whole family, weekend workshops, food service projects, private parties and group cooking activities for all ages. Now that we’re online, we are available to the whole planet.
