An interactive cooking class or art program is a great way for your scout troop to earn a badge or just have fun! Choose from our most popular programs or let us custom design an event for your members and your budget. Scouting events have a $150 minimum charge unless special arrangements are made in advance. We request an accurate number attending two days before your event. You will be charged for that number. We LOVE guiding scouts to explore new horizons that inspire and build confidence. We discuss how these skills are useful in the home as well as in potential careers.
Snacks, Simple Meals or New Cuisines Badges
Depending on the age of your scout and your goals we offer a 90 to 120 minute interactive cooking class. Our conversation reviews safety, sanitation and kitchen etiquette as well. We make recipes as required for your badge including, but not limited to tacos, handmade pasta, crepes and baked goods. Participants eat what they make. We can adjust recipes for food allergies if needed. Scouts gain kitchen confidence and learn recipe terms, healthy eating options and teamwork.
Social Butterfly Badge
In this badge we learn about table settings, manners in and out of the home, holding conversations, making introductions, refusing with grace and handling yourself in common social situations. Scouts will enjoy a simple meal to learn how to eat neatly and quietly. Following the meal, we will learn the importance of Thank You notes and practice confidence building skills through role playing.
Fused Glass or Pottery
Our professional instructors guide scouts through badge requirements by discussing materials, tools and techniques. Pottery and Fused Glass requires that pieces are kiln-fired. Other art badges can be earned as well. Just let us know!
Scout programs are $25 per participant. Additional charges may be applied for expanded menus or additional art items.
