Cooking class is a popular activity at Camp Skyline - because duh, SNACKS!! All of our two week campers have the opportunity to take cooking as one of their six activities, and the class fills up fast! Every cooking class campers work together to cook a recipe created by the cooking head. Campers learn life skills of how to use kitchen appliances and responsibility. Here are a couple fun, and easy to do, recipes similar to the ones campers use in cooking class!

Our first recipe will be for SMOOTHIES!!!

First you will need to gather a few materials!

  • Cutting board
  • Knife (ask a parent!)
  • Blender (ask a parent!)
  • Measuring cup

Then gather your ingredients!

  • 1.5 cups of your favorite fresh or frozen fruits (I like bananas, raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries!)
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup of your favorite juice or milk
  • If you prefer a frozen smoothie, add a few ice cube!

Now, you just throw all your ingredients in the blender and have a parent help you blend it all together! When it’s a thick and smooth consistency, pour into a couple cups, share, and enjoy!!
