Summer Camp for Kids

Mexican Cooking, Art and Mushroom Foraging

This course is dedicated to kids from age 10-14. They will have hands on cooking classes, mushroom foraging, drawing and sculpting classes. They will learn about another culture while visiting markets, families, artisans and archaeological ruins. In the valley of Etla & the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca, this course will be taught by Chef Susana Trilling and renown Mexican artist Jorge Gonzalez Velasco.

This is a family day camp, with separate itineraries for the parents and their appropriately aged children. The summer camp runs from 9 am to 6 pm. Accommodations are included in Oaxaca city, with an overnight mushroom foraging excursion for all, in the mountains in the Sierra Norte. This hands on, weeklong experience culminates with a special mole dinner and art show created by the children for all to enjoy! (Adult supervision necessary for night time at the end of each day.)
