VIRTUAL WINTER CAMP 2020

WINTER BREAK CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Our camp offers real social interaction using an online video conferencing platform, therefore spots are limited.
The supplies needed to participate in the camp are included and are available for pick up or shipping.
Camp platform is kids friendly, easy to access, and navigate.

Our virtual winter camp is not like any other camp your child has ever gone to.
If your child loves to bake, wants to help you when you’re in the kitchen, and sees all the cake decorating shows on TV, our camp is the perfect fit.

Our more than 10 years of experience in teaching children how to bake and decorate makes us a leading camp in the art of cake decorating.
During the years we have developed unique tools and teaching techniques that allow the children to replicate amazing pieces of edible art.
Camp instructors are recognized cake artists with thousands of teaching hours that have created unique and original projects for this camp.

Schedule:

Two different sessions are available to choose from (In each session we will decorate cupcakes, cookies, cake, and French macarons)
December 21st – 24th: Winter Theme Week
December 28th-31st: Artists Theme Week
Campers can sign up for one or two weeks.

Camp hours are 12pm-4pm ET / 9am-1pm PT, allowing the children to have lunch before camp starts.

Children will have to prepare before and after camp screen time for the next class activities, bake pastries, practice with fondant, prepare the tools and supplies, etc.

Sign up for virtual winter camp

How does our virtual camp work?

Our virtual camp is designed to encourage your child to learn, create and practice the art of cake decorating in their own safe environment.
We will provide the fondant, icing, and all the edibles needed for an entire week of camp. (Not Including baking supplies, pans or KitchenAid Mixer…)
For pastry baking, we offer two options.
1. Bake at your own pace. Share the experience with the entire family following our Video tutorials and recipes with detailed step by step instructions. Recipes will be posted on the camp website a week before camp starts, so there is plenty of time. Adult supervision is required for this activity. If you prefer you can use your favorite recipe. Totally up to you.
2. For LOCAL campers: Get Mia Cake House pastries (only local pickup option available). If baking takes you out of your comfort zone or you are to busy to spend time in the kitchen and clean up the mess, we are here for you. We will have the pastries ready for you to pick up.

Camp site will have all the information on how to prepare for camp, how to set up the table for each project, and practice videos, so the campers can practice on how to work with fondant ahead of the class.

 

Security:

Access to the virtual winter camp area will be secured and campers will be invited into the class once their identity has been verified (This is to avoid “zoombombing”). If campers are divided into “rooms” they will be supervised by Mia Cake House’s staff.

Tools:

The art of cake decorating requires special tools and supplies. We offer the tools required for the activities at a reduced price. 

To participate in the camp, campers must have ALL the tools in the tools list. You can purchase the tools from Mia Cake House (at a reduced price), at your local cake supply shop, or use the tools you already have.

Some tools are especially made for the classes, like the cookie cutters, and are not optional.

Shipping:

You can pick up tools and supplies for the virtual winter camp from our stores, free of charge. We will inform you when your box is ready for pickup.

We also offer shipping options anywhere in the continental USA.

BEHAVIOR POLICY
Mia Cake House is a place to enjoy and learn the art of baking and decorating. Each child should follow camp rules which include, but are not limited to: respecting themselves, peers, instructors, and volunteers. Our activities are step by step classes and children must be able to follow instructions and do as requested.
At Mia Cake House we will not tolerate bullying or defiance toward instructors.
When children choose not to follow any of these rules we will contact the parent/guardian by phone to inform of the incidence

Camp activities require the ability to follow instructions, concentrate, and be seated for periods of 2-3 hours. You as a parent know your child better than anyone to decide if your child will enjoy the activities and follow the rules.
