Creative Kids Culinary Overnight Camp
*The Kids Culinary Camp @ Walkerworld is A LOT more than just making delicious meals and pastries. We are located on the beautiful Cape Fear River which means tons of fun in the water. We have a blast boating, stand-up paddle-boarding, rope swings & trampolining into the water. We all enjoy outdoor games, fire pits and camp fire songs. Don't forget about all of the creative art we do through out the week as well. It's so much more than we could ever express!

KCCA Kids Culinary Academy
(Children’s Activities in a Responsible Environment)
Welcome to KCCA Kids Culinary Academy. This is designed to acquaint you with our program and policies.
KCCA is a program offering a variety of culinary & creative activities with a focus on nutrition, fitness & FUN under adult supervision, for children.
The program was created to provide children who have a heart for the culinary world to be creative, learn amazing skills while having FUN!

KCCA offers students a variety of physical, recreational, and educational activities which will include experimenting with cooking and baking, visits from other resources to extend fun learning experiences to their day, students designing their own personal cookbook that will be completed at the end of the week as well as dedicated time for catching up.
1. To provide students with a safe, relaxed environment in a educational culinary program.
2. To provide a nurturing, supportive atmosphere.
3. To offer a variety of activities and materials that promotes a child’s creativity, as well as social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
4. To provide positive guidance for each student in order to develop confidence and responsibility, as well as respect for each other.

Children often play outside; please send the appropriate clothing. Gym shoes are required for playing outside.
Please let us know if your child has a special request or dietary needs.
We strongly discourage children from bringing toys (including electronic devices) from home. We cannot be responsible for lost, broken, or stolen items.
Rules for Children
In every situation in life we are guided by a certain set of rules. Likewise, in every educational setting we also have rules. A leader in an educational position is continually faced with decisions about rules and consequences that will insure a successful program.
At KCCA we have chosen a plan for the children that emphasizes the positive aspects of the rules listed below. With such a system, the guidelines are clearly defined and a sense of ambiguity does not exist. When a child knows what is expected of them, they have the opportunity to make an appropriate choice of behaviors. It is our intention that this system will contribute to the growth of your child’s self-control and their ability to choose the correct behavior.
Below are the rules of the Kids Culinary Academy.
Listen to and follow the directions of the Instructor
Walk whenever inside the home
Keep hands, feet and other objects to themselves
Always ask permission to leave
Be kind and considerate to instructor and other students.
KCCA reserves the right to deny attendance to any child due to any continuous physical, emotional or behavioral problems. The methods the staff will use for conflict resolution are: setting clear limits, redirection and positive guidance. If a problem arises the following steps will be taken.
The child’s parent will be notified of the problem.
The parent(s) will be notified a second time in a written disciplinary note, if the behavior has not changed. At this time consequences of this behavior will be discussed.
If negative behavior persists, the instructor will meet with the parent(s) to develop an appropriate behavior plan along with a proposed timeframe for implementation of the plan. The parent(s) will also be informed of the daily progress of the child.
If all reasonable approaches are exhausted and the pattern of negative behavior continues and/or the child’s actions are a threat to the well being and safety of other children and staff, the child may be placed on suspension. Behaviors that warrant suspension including the following: physical violence, biting, persistent bullying and swearing, verbal harassment of peers or staff and unauthorized departure from the program grounds.
We do not administer prescription or non prescription medication without the proper district protocol. Children may not keep or administer any type of medication. Please contact KCA Instructor for procedure.
According to the Health Department, children must be kept home if they have any symptoms of illness. During the course of the day’s activities, caregivers will take note of any changes in the appearance or behavior of the children. The KCA Instructor will contact you about coming to pick up your child if any symptoms appear while he/she is in our care.
Serious Accident or Injury
The procedure for a serious accident or injury of a child while in our care is that the child receives immediate attention and the appropriate people are called. The order of contact for a serious injury is:
1. Attend to the child
2. Call 911
3. Contact the parent

Packing for the Kids Culinary Camp made Fun and Easy!
Packing for camp can be a very stressful process. There are so many things you need to remember! What if you forget a shoe or a tube of toothpaste? What if you pack all the wrong kinds of clothes? Fortunately, we here at the Culinary Camp are ready to help you face your fear of packing and get on to the fun. Though we still have a few months to go, it is never too early to start the packing process, and we think the sooner, the better. Here are some tips on exactly how to pack, stress-free!
Step 1- Organization: First and foremost, you must go in to the packing process with a clear idea of exactly what you need. Consider all the possible weather conditions, you will want not only summery clothes such as shorts and tank tops, but also sweatpants and long sleeve shirts. And you will of course want your customized Camp Half Moon apparel! Remember, in an overnight camping environment “it is better to have and not need than to need and not have.” For this reason, before you even lay out your clothes or shop at all, make an exact list (excel spreadsheets may sound over the top, but can be quite useful) with checkboxes so you can keep up on all the items you want and whether or not you have them.
Step 2- Miscellaneous: Of course, your list already includes the basic clothing items and shoes. But often it is easy to forget the miscellaneous items. Do not forget to include all your personal hygiene needs. (shampoos and hairsprays, face washes, etc.) It is also important to have outdoor ready products such as sunscreen, bug repellents, deodorant, and hats.
Step 3- Shopping: Obviously, the items that you have put on your list are not all already in your possession. However, the key to shopping for camp is to not over – or under – shop. Before leaving for the store go through every item on your list, including small things such as nail clippers and bed sheets. Look around your house for all of these items and locate them, don’t just assume that you have it. Once you know exactly what you already have, mark it on your list and head out to the store. You may need to buy an additional item even if you already have it, for example an extra bottle of shampoo or a back up pair of sneakers- it is better to be safe than sorry, so mark it on your list and purchase an extra one. Also, not everything that you have in your home is “camp friendly.” Certain things have a tendency to get dirty or ruined while at camp. Take this in to consideration when laying out what you do and do not need. Once you have all your home items gathered, you can collect the new ones.
Step 4: Labeling: Labeling your personal belongings is a very important thing to do. For the purpose of laundry, you may need to label all clothing items. Buy sew-in or iron-on labels with your child’s full name inside and place these in clothes. You can take to socks and underwear with a permanent marker (just initials will do), and a folded label or handwritten name on the tag of bathing suits will suffice. Most importantly, do not forget the small stuff. Though no laundry will be separating your child’s flip flops or toothpastes, these items still need labels. Being in a bunk with many other campers can cause items to be lost or confused for someone else’s. For easy identification, label (with vinyl stick-ons, stamps, or permanent marker) personal belongings.
Step 5- The Setup: Easy unpacking once at camp starts with organized packing beforehand. To make it easy for your camper to get settled in, pack with a method. Put similar types of clothing in the same piles in your trunks, and pair shoes on one side. Keep bathroom items in plastic shoe boxes or crates, and put small items and jewelry or money in a lockbox or small drawer unit. This will help you to keep track of what types of things you have already packed, and will help to ensure an easy unpacking! What a relief.
Step 6- The Final Touches: Once you’ve put everything together, towels in stacks, stuffed animals in place, and water bottles in line, it’s time to do the finishing check. Make sure everything on your list is ready and accounted for. Survey the boxes and trunks that are packed up and look for organization and a full count of all items you wished to bring. It is a good idea to pack a fresh copy of your packing list (with unchecked boxes) in to your bags so it can be used to account for all items you packed prior to camp and re-pack to come home!
Now that you have all the tips to the packing process, it’s time to get started! No need to fear the under packing or missing items any longer, with this detailed guide there is no way to fail. Go in prepared and remember to follow all of your steps. Packing this year will be easy as pie, and camp coming so soon is just the cherry on top
