Cooking Around The World Summer Camp at New Era Creative Space in Peekskill, NY

PEEKSKILL – Cooking Around The World Summer Camp @ New Era Creative Space (NECS)



Tuesday, August 20 – Thurdsay, August 22, 2019



9 am – 12 pm



For Ages 8 – 12






This “Cooking Around the World” camp is for chefs ages 8-12, who have shown interest in cooking and who have had experience with chopping, peeling, measuring and helping with other kitchen tasks. During each day of camp, we will explore a specific region and cuisine and we will explore the culture and geography as well. The chefs will not need to provide a snack, as they will have 2 opportunities to taste what they made in class. They should bring a water bottle with them to stay hydrated.


We use natural, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever available, and do not use nut-based products, raw meat or shellfish. We focus on introducing the small chefs to new cuisines, tastes and the cultures representing the recipes they cook. Parents, please make sure that we are aware of any food allergies and texture avoiding issues that your children may have.


You and your chef will receive:

*the recipes we prepared in camp

*an introduction to countries and the regions we “visit in camp”

*video and/or pictures of your chefs in action



* Limited Scholarships available for Peekskill residents. To apply for scholarship call (914) 930-1777 or email

CaravanKids Summer Workshop

NEW PALTZ – CaravanKids Summer Workshop with The Vanaver Caravan @ Stone Mountain Farm at The Center for Symbolic Studies


CaravanKids Summer Workshop, held at Stone Mountain Farm, introduces children to the wonderful world of dance! CK Week is so much more than a dance program – it’s a full week of adventure, movement, art, imagination, and creativity!


Monday, July 8 – Friday, July 12, 2019


Monday, July 15 – Friday, July 19, 2019


Full day: 9 am – 3 pm, $375

Half day: 9 am – 12 pm, $250



Drawing from the talent and imagination of each child, CK week builds a group of trusting, adventurous, and gifted kids who learn to celebrate the endless joys of dance, music and childhood.


During the morning sessions, Caravan Kids are guided through a series of creative movement and beginner modern lessons, learning folk music, stories, rhythms, and multi-cultural dance traditions. The end of the week culminates in a dance sharing presentation and potluck with all the Caravan Kid families.


The afternoons are for exploration! Students engage in intricate (and often very messy) arts-and-crafts projects, cooperative outdoor games, nature hikes and magical scavenger hunts through the fields and trails of the magical Stone Mountain Farm. (Every year, we meet a fairy!)
