If your children enjoy cooking, then they will love our Tiny Chefs: Chopped Camp. Students, ages 6 to 10-years old, are presented with a basket of ingredients reflecting different cuisines. They will challenge themselves to make mouthwatering specialties. Camp runs from Aug. 19-23 and meets from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Recreation Center.
