Kids' Culinary

Foods of Mexico

Join us on a culinary adventure! Kids' Culinary Academy 2022's theme is, Foods of Mexico. Our executive chefs, sous chefs and registered dietitian will inspire your imagination and encourage your creativity as you create mouth-watering delights, sumptuous delicacies and extraordinary dishes. Following the theme of "Foods of Mexico", participants will gain cooking skills and learn to make salsa, guacamole, street tacos, quesadillas and more!

While learning food preparation skills is the main ingredient at Kids' Culinary Academy, each session will also add a heap of kitchen safety, a scoop of etiquette, a pinch of menu planning and laughter to taste. 

At Kids' Culinary Academy, imaginations are free to run wild as kids discover math, reading, health, time management, food chemistry and social skills through our three hands-on camps!


  • Three days of hands-on cooking instruction and practice
  • Learn from UW-La Crosse chefs 
  • Lunch included each day
  • Final day culminates in a "grand finale" dinner (each registration includes one guest ticket, additional guest tickets are available for purchase)
