Adventure Kitchen Summer Camps


A destination for adventures in food, and we’re back with our unique camps for the 5th year in a row. Our camps are for curious cooks as well as more “selective” eaters. No shame here - everyone is welcome! We have two camp options:

Culinary Adventure Camp for entering 6th-9th graders - join us to take the train to NYC for different food adventures every day! We meet at the Walnut St. train station in Montclair each morning, then spend each day exploring and enjoying food adventures all over the city.

Cooking Camp for ages 8-14 at the Unitarian Church in downtown Montclair. Spend the day cooking, eating and having fun with us. Hands-on, real cooking with a unique theme each week.

All camps are run by Lynley Jones, creator of Adventure Kitchen, with the best adult assistants and camp counselors around. For detail, email
