Cookery/Craft Camps After-School Activity

During the school holidays the After-School organises camps for 5-12 year olds, combining cookery with art and craft projects to suit both boys and girls. The children learn how to follow a recipe, measure out their ingredients, cook their own food and, of course, enjoy eating it! Activities also include team games and art and craft projects.
