L’Academie de Cuisine’s Children’s Summer Cooking Camps are designed for children ages 9 – 12 and teenagers 13 – 17.    

Morning and afternoon sessions are offered 5 days per week, Monday through Friday. (With the exception of the week of July 4th where there is a 4-day camp).  

Morning sessions meet from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm.  Afternoon sessions meet from 1:30 – 4:30 pm.   Evening sessions meet from 5:30 - 8:30 pm.  

Camps are held at LADC’s Bethesda location at 5021 Wilson Lane.   


The 2015 Summer Cooking Camp schedule will be available online shortly.  Registration will begin Monday, March 9, 2015.  L’Academie de Cuisine will not accept any registrations postmarked, emailed or faxed prior to Monday, March 9 All information concerning LADC's Summer Cooking Camps will be published on the website.  Please download the registration form from the website.       

Registrations must be filled out by the parent or guardian. Only one child per registration form please.  LADC can not accept a registration if it is not signed by the parent/guardian and the child. Please make sure to review your registration form so that all information is completed, otherwise it cannot be accepted.  

Children may be registered for as many camps as desired, however camps may not be scheduled on the same day (for example back to back morning and afternoon sessions) as child care is not available between sessions, and camps are physically very demanding on students.  

 The cost is $415.00 per camp session and full payment by check, cash, credit card, or gift certificate is due with registration.  A family will receive a 20% discount for 3 or more confirmed registrations for this summer.  This will be assessed on the registration by LADC depending on availability of camps.  

Confirmations are sent out by mail or email (depending on indicated preference) within two weeks after registration opens and/or your registration is received.  


 Camp cancellations must be made at least one calendar month prior to the first day of your child’s camp.  NO EXCEPTIONS.   

No refunds, school credits or camp rescheduling will be provided for cancellations made after this time. Camp cancellations made at least one month prior to the start of camp will receive a refund minus a $50 cancellation fee.
