Summer Means Schnucks Cooks Kids Cooking Camps

ST. LOUIS – Summer is in full swing and so is Schnucks Summer Cooking Camp!  This year the camps will be offered at two locations – Schnucks Des Peres (12332 Manchester Rd, 63131) and Schnucks Dardenne Crossing (3029 Highway K, 63368). 

Schnucks Registered Dietician Kara Behlke notes that Schnucks has been a devoted member of the St. Louis community for 75 years.  “These camps allow us to extend that dedication to our younger customers as well,” Behlke said.  “At camp we work hard to get kids excited about healthy foods and passionate about cooking.” 

“We have healthy and fun class options available for two different age groups – kids ages 5-8 and other sessions for those 9-12.  We offer three-hour classes in the morning and two-hour sessions in the afternoon,” Behlke added. 

A morning session costs $30 per day or a whole week is available for $130 while individual afternoon classes cost $20 with a full week of afternoon classes available for $90. 

Registration is fast and easy!  To sign up, parents/guardians can visit the customer service area at either store, register online at or call 314-562-3615. 

The coordinators at Kids Camp make sure to make everyone feel included and are willing to change recipes for allergies, intolerances, etc.  “This camp is all about the kids, and we can’t wait to get them excited about healthy and fun eating!” Behlke said.
