Schnucks Gets Cooking with Kids Summer Camps

ST. LOUIS – Schnucks Registered Dietitian Kara Behlke is partnering with the team at Schnucks Kehrs Mill, located at 2511 Kehrs Mill Road (63017), to deliver Summer Cooking Camps for young foodies ages 5-8 and 9-12.  Camps start Monday, June 10 and run through Friday, Aug. 9, but it’s based on a flexible schedule so campers can also register for individual classes. 


Each action-packed day offers a different theme and a new hands-on food adventure.  According to Behlke, the summer program will offer a complete learning experience with cooking and nutrition lessons as well as related crafts and activities.  “This is not like your typical summer camp.  Our schedule is designed to be flexible in order to fit into every family’s busy summer schedule.  Young foodies can sign up for one class, for a morning or afternoon session, a full week or multiple weeks,” she said.


Behlke and the Schnucks summer nutrition team are making learning fun and exciting with themes like “Campfire Cooking” and “Magical Wizardry” for the younger set and “Chuckwagon Chow” and “Tie-Dye Surprise” for the older age group. “Kids will learn to cook with recipes, work with kitchen equipment, create crafts to take home and participate in activities all focused around making food fun and learning how to prepare nutritious foods,” Behlke said.  “Smaller class sizes and a team of support staff, means more individual attention and more happy campers!”


As the program grows and evolves, Behlke says, “The idea is to take it into Schnucks stores across the St. Louis region so that we can reach and teach more young people on the importance of making healthy food choices.” 


Classes range from $20-$30 or $90-$130 for a full week pass.  Don’t delay, spaces are filling up fast!  Sign up now and your children will have foodie fun all summer long!
