Summer Camp!

Camp Colorwheel and Turnip the Heat Cooking present: Art and Cooking Around the World.

Our hands-on, 5-day summer camp explores world cultures through art, food, games, folktales and music. Each day we will discover a new country. Colorful art and craft activities will be led by Deena Raphael of Camp Colorwheel; Joanna Sooper of Turnip the Heat Cooking will help campers prepare and cook their own lunch and snacks inspired by the day’s global destination.

We’ll have outdoor time to soak up the summer sunshine and learn new games played by children in other parts of the world.

This camp is sponsored by Whole Foods Market Fremont. Ingredients will be local and organic whenever possible.
