Take a BAKE!-cation®

Fantasy Camp for Home Bakers

Kids in the classroom

Our BAKE!-cations® are the ultimate experience for the home baker!

We feature both week-long and weekend BAKE!-cations® that include breakfast and lunch everyday, and we promise that you'll need to bring along an empty suitcase to bring home all the great stuff you've made.

One of the "best, most affordable" cooking classes in the world.
