Join Sprouts Cooking School this summer for Indiana’s premier cooking camp experience!
This year, we will be offering 9 weeks of cooking camp fun with more than 15 different options for your Sprouting Chef to choose from!
During our 4-day specialty themed camps, your child will learn a variety of cooking skills and will create a total of 10-12 delicious recipes. They will also get to nurture their artistic side while making at least two crafts per camp. Additionally, during the final hour on Thursday of each camp, “family dinner” will take place. This is a special time for 1-2 guests to come visit and sample some of the food their student has learned to prepare during camp. No need to worry about materials – all meals, groceries, craft supplies, set-up, food prep, and clean-up for the camps are provided! You just supply your Sprouting Chef!
Back for summer 2021! Single day camp sessions on Fridays from 9 am to 4 pm! Join us for an all-day camp where your Sprouting Chef will make six to eight recipes and participate in craft and interactive activities!

Who is the perfect camper for Sprouts Cooking School?
Any child who loves to cook or wants to learn to cook!
What does a typical day look like at Sprouts Cooking School Summer Camp?
We have 2 camp sessions per day 9-12 and 2-5. Camps are 3 hours each day and run Monday-Thursday. Students will make an average of 3-4 recipes per day depending on the camp theme and typically have time to eat outside and do a craft. The final hour of camp, parents are invited into Sprouts for a family meal where they will get to sample some of the food their child has been learning to make during the week.
Tell us about your staff. Who are they? What is their training/experience? What is the camper/staff ratio?
We have team members who have been with us since they were in high school and have worked their way up through the company to become teachers. We also have moms with a passion for cooking and teaching kids. Most of our teachers have been with Sprouts for several years. We have one lead teacher and 1 assistant teacher per 16 children.
Do you have opportunities for campers with special needs?
Yes, we can make accommodations in most situations. Please reach out and we can discuss the best plan for your child.
What are snacks or meals like at summer camp?
The students eat the meals they make in class each day.
What kinds of activities can campers expect to participate in?
We will be very busy cooking and learning all summer long!
