Kids & Teens Culinary Arts Center Program
HAL Kids Culinary Workshops now offer children a unique and fun learning experience. Kids will learn basic cooking techniques, kitchen safety, new ingredients, and how to follow recipe instructions. Aside from the fun involved, cooking encourages kids to think about numbers and measuring, cleanliness, safety, and time management. The Culinary Art Center is a place where questions are encouraged and having fun is a must.
HAL Kids Culinary Workshops are geared towards two age groups: ages 3-7 and ages 8-and-up. Teenagers aged 15-and-up may participate in the adult classes.
The menus range from simple to teen gourmet, and each student receives copies of the recipes prepared in class. All classes are complimentary and last approximately one hour.
HAL Youth Programs recognize that some children may have special needs.* Special needs children are invited to attend activities based on their chronological age. HAL Youth Programs have many staff members trained to work with special needs children. Guests should make HAL aware of this when booking their reservation to ensure that appropriate staff will be available.
*Adults that are not Youth Staff are not permitted to remain in the Youth Center unless attending to a child with special needs.
