Parents, just imagine it… no more packing lunches for your kids! This dream can become a reality with help from COOKSMART Multi-Camp this summer because kids learn how to cook their own food. With three locations in Mississauga and Oakville, kids can learn kitchen skills to build their confidence and develop their creativity and curiosity.

At these summer camps, children and teens cook nutritious snacks and tasty meals while developing life skills to become healthy and self-reliant. Meanwhile, COOKSMART summer camps let kids be kids, complete with creative fun and science in the kitchen.


The goal of COOKSMART is to inspire families to teach kids basic cooking skills to help them make better food choices for lifelong healthy eating. When kids get involved in meal planning and food preparation, it greatly benefits their families. Not only do busy parents get more help in the kitchen, but they can also have fun with their kids. Plus, then they get to have a delicious meal together!

COOKSMART aims to inspire families and teach kids basic cooking skills, which in turn helps them make better food choices for lifelong healthy eating. As the campers build their confidence in the kitchen, they work towards full independence. Not to mention, these lessons include healthy foods with plenty of allergy-friendly and vegetarian options.
