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.****

Our son is so excited every week for his Dynamite Dinner Club class. More than just gaining new skills (which he does) he loves the camaraderie and connections among the students and teachers. For tonight’s class where they made a Moroccan dish, I asked him what was his favorite part and he said “well I would have to say the conversation!” He was also very proud to serve us his entree and we are thrilled that he’s learning about (and eating!) cuisine from around the world.

The teachers give positive feedback on all skill levels. That helps my child to build self esteem with her kitchen skills! She’s creating wonderful dishes to share with the family. She continues to practice the same dishes on other nights of the week which is a treat for us.

My son has so much more confidence in the kitchen, and he is (usually) in such a great mood when he’s cooking in class
I wish the teen class was slightly earlier.

Easy to follow. Verbal directions paired with visuals on the screen
Maybe more kid friendly foods Had a hard time finding the ingredient list initially so maybe putting that with the receipt

The step by step instruction of the teachers. They were super nice and clear. I loved my cooking. It’s all delicious! I also really enjoyed cooking with everyone because it’s a friendly atmosphere!
Nothing. Five stars!
About The Dynamite Shop (kids 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.
