UPDATE: This camp is full and is accepting waiting list only.

Give your little chef the chance to make culinary magic at Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority’s Kid’s Kitchen summer day camp. The VLPRA is hosting the specialty cooking camp at the Wood Valley Community Center July 8th-12th for 6-12-year-old kids.  The hours are 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM.

The day camp is full of field trips and opportunities for these top chefs to learn about the farm-to-table food chain as well as plenty of hands-on cooking as they prepare all their own meals.  To end the week, the graduating chefs will serve their families a lunch they prepared themselves.

The fee is $90 per child and includes all trips, food preparation, breakfast, lunch and a snack. Registration is open until June 30h. Space is very limited.  Anyone interested in becoming a chef for a week can register online at or call the front office at 229-259-3507 with questions.
