Are your creative kids looking to have a *sweet* summer? At the Le Dolci Summer Baking Camp in the west end’s family-friendly Junction neighbourhood, budding chefs can have a delicious time attending educational and interactive baking classes.

Ideal for kids aged 7-11, the weeklong sessions of Summer Kids Camp at Le Dolci Culinary Classroom feature a range of memorable and imaginative baking experiences. Projects include making classic treats such as layer cakes and cookies, plus kids also learn how to decorate their exciting creations with style, worthy of becoming a viral social media post!

But since it’s summer, the camp leaders ensure the mini chefs don’t stay cooped up in the kitchen all day! Daily activities include meditation and stretching exercises each morning, and music and outdoor activities.

Kids who need a creative baking outlet this summer can become pastry chefs for a week at Le Dolci’s Culinary Camp! Kids and tweens who love to bake and decorate can make a variety of delicious treats while having lots of fun too. All lessons are led by an expert team of pastry chefs at its gorgeous Toronto studio in the Junction.

Summer Kids Camp at Le Dolci delivers a delectable education for mini chefs all week! Starting each Monday, the campers plan out their menu ideas, then start thinking like a real professional, including marketing and pricing. Then, as they continue baking throughout the week, they also work on displays and signage.

Finally, on Friday, the chefs host a bake sale! The participants sell their baked goods for their parents and neighbours to enjoy, with the proceeds going to the nearby George Chuvalo Neighbourhood Centre. Last year, the bakers raised $1500 for charity and the kids had a blast!
