Extension district schedules summer cooking camps for kids

Frontier Extension District is sponsoring a series of children’s cooking classes for youth ages third grade through fifth grade this summer. A class fee of $10 will be charged per child to cover costs of food supplies. Special arrangements can be made for children who receive free and reduced lunches during the school year. All classes will be held at the Frontier Extension District’s Lyndon Office. Extension summer youth cooking camps allow children to learn to cook with spills and not get into trouble.

Class registration forms are on the Frontier Extension District web page www.frontierdistrict.k-state.edu under Health and Nutrition, Kids Summer Cooking Camps. Signed registration forms for all classes need to be emailed before classes start to [email protected] or mailed to Frontier District Extension – Garnett Office, 411 South Oak, Garnett, KS 66032. For more information about the classes, call 785-448-6826.
