Kids in the kitchen don’t have to be scary

Kids in the Kitchen is a program that runs Mondays at the Campbell River Sportsplex

Kids can learn to prepare awesome meals and snacks…without burning the house down.

Are your 9 to 11 year olds hungry after school? Are they starting to prepare meals on their own? Giving your kids full access to the kitchen for the first time can be scary. Campbell River Recreation and Culture can help prepare you and your kids for this next step.

Kids in the Kitchen is a program that runs Mondays at the Sportsplex from 3-4:30 p.m. starting Monday, March 5 and ending March 26. Participants will learn basic kitchen safety, how to prepare simple but scrumptious snacks and compile a cookbook of recipes and cooking tips to take home.

“I’m looking forward to letting the kids get creative in the kitchen,” says Program Leader Sarah Sandholm who will be teaching the course, “No matter how picky or what allergies the kids have, they will be able to chef up healthy foods they can create and enjoy…on their own.”

This year kids will be learning how to make energy-boosting smoothies, luxury grilled cheese, banana dogs and more. There are only a few spaces left.  Arrange for your child and a friend to sign up today!


FBI: Solving crimes of food borne illness


The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture provides their version of Food Safe for kids (Grades 1-3).

The infamous Lin Kohlhofer (Mrs. K) will guide the kids through a series of kitchen investigations where the kids will fight contamination crimes, destroy bacteria, viruses and parasites, and claim their kitchen as clean and crime free! Kids will enjoy Mrs. K’s yucky experiments, and learn some important food safety at the same time. This program runs on Tuesdays, March 6-27, 3-4:30 p.m. at the Sportsplex.
