OVERVIEW: Our goal is to equip and expose students to hands on recipes around the world. Our young chefs will learn about different global flavours. We will step by step teach our students how to prepare these meals, appreciate new foods, new flavours and diverse cultures. Students will be empowered to execute sweet and savoury recipes at home so as to help cook meals at home and prepare lunches for school. Our welcoming environment provides a “real” setting so that the students can take what they learn at NCC to their own homes. Students will acquire the knowledge, experience, and confidence to build lifelong cooking skills that can ignite creativity, and build self-esteem. Students will eat what they prepare, execute recipes learned at home, build confidence, and most importantly create memories that will last forever.

We will be following the most up to date guidelines provided by Alberta health Services and the Government of Alberta. We will inform you of requirements to attend the camps such as the use of masks and temperature checks prior to day 1 of our camp. We will follow all necessary protocols to ensure a safe environment for all participants. We will keep you posted on the most recent protocols as we draw close to Spring. We want to use this opportunity to thank you for your understanding. 

Nini’s Cooking Camp is one of our favourite time of the year. It allows us the opportunity to build relationships, go in-depth and get even more creative in the kitchen, learn global cuisines, and laugh while enjoying tasty meals. This is because we have more time to bring out the best in your child.
