Jul 22 @ 9:00 am – Jul 26 @ 4:00 pm
School's Out Cooking Program: Summer Break @ Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

The School’s Out Cooking Program offers a week of fun at the Y! Each morning we cook and bake in the kitchen and eat what we make for lunch. Then we spend the afternoon in the fitness center, play games in the gym, swim and do crafts.

While in the kitchen, we focus on basic cooking skills, kitchen safety best-practices and fresh spring recipes! Each participant will go home with a personalized apron and a book of recipes made that week. Each week features a different theme.

Open to kids ages 8 – 16. Child care is available before and after class for $5/hour per child. Please email the instructor, Mia Schulte, with any dietary restrictions prior to class.
