"My daughter learned new skills in the kitchen she wouldn’t have tried otherwise and was glad to have a teacher to answer her questions. She was very proud of the fruit tart she made (which was delicious) and has gained more confidence as a baker. "

What You'll Do

How sweet it is to make, bake and taste your way through this delicious weeklong class. Build your culinary skills and broaden your recipe repertoire as you create a suite of treats full of flavors, fruit fusions and fabulous decorations you design yourself.

Start fresh with gourmet popsicles crafted from fruit, juice and a custom simple syrup infused with unexpected ingredients. Make mighty tasty mini cheesecakes, gorgeously plated and finished with a flavorful sauce. BE DETERMINED as you perfect your pastry dough technique, then make flaky tarts filled with creamy custard and topped with your favorite fruits. Whip up a beautiful batch of expertly kneaded, filled and decorated pie cookies. Bake cupcakes and BE VISIONARY as you invent an irresistibly flavored frosting and pipe it on in creative designs. Throughout the week, create a name, logo and mouthwatering menu of treats for your very own dessert cafe.

Note: This weeklong class is more than just innovation-igniting projects—it’s an immersive experience full of delightful details, including interactive games, silly traditions and dress-up days designed to build community, bolster confidence and deliver loads of camp-away-from-camp fun.

The curriculum includes some of our most popular recipes. If your child has taken our single-session Gourmet Popsicles class or has made mini cheesecakes, fruit tarts or cupcakes with buttercream frosting at Galileo Summer Quest, they’ll be familiar with some of this week’s projects—and have the chance to put a new twist on a treat they’ve made before.
