SteamCampKids.com Spotlight — Ooey Gooey Kitchen.

We’ve created a recipe for fun: equal parts sticky and yummy.

In our Ooey Gooey Kitchen camp, we’ll use STEAM-based processes to make delicious gooey bars and marshmallow and pudding creations. Then, we’ll bring in the art part of our brains for decorating. We’ll also learn to use a variety of kitchen tools. Leftovers? We’ll see.
