About Cooking Camp

At each stage of the year there is a food in season - fresh for the picking, preparing and sharing.

Each week, kids attending Cooking Camp will learn to know a locally grown, in-season food, how to cook it and how to hold a feast with friends. Kids will also learn how to set and decorate a table and best of all, how to clean it all up.

Parents get the morning off and upon return, kids who can cook!

Cooking Camps are healthy, connect to our environment and pass on skills that have been used traditionally for generations. Kids will have the opportunity to meet the farmers who grow the food in New South Wales as well as our regional producers.

There are many ideas behind Cooking Camp but the heart of it is based on children, at an early age, developing a love and appreciation of cooking, the joys of farm fresh produce and the value of sharing meals together with friends and family.


In the case the camp is sold out, occassionally we are able to add an extra place. If you’d like to sign up for the waitlist please email info@cookingcamp.org. Camp happens rain or shine and tickets are non-refundable.

If you are interested in being placed on the email list for future Cooking Camps, or like our cause and would like to volunteer, offer your support or just give us some feedback please also email info@cookingcamp.org

Today’s camp will meet a special guest, our local olive oil producer! Learn the basics of spotting good olive oil and determining what to use when tossing up a salad or cooking.

Handmade gnocchi will be the latest recipe to add to the kid's repertoire. We will be testing if odd shaped pasta is more authentic...Buon appetito!

*Please note: Kids will have the opportunity to taste test different olive oils at this camp.


Cooking Camp will be held at Sydney Sustainable Markets, Taylor Square, Darlinghurst. For travelling directions visit here
