This Week’s Theme: NYC World Tour
A tour of cuisines from around the world, as we roam around NYC. We’ll walk the city and take public transportation to make new discoveries each day! We'll try new foods from cuisines around the world, and also stop for familiar goodies like ice cream, pastries and more.
Detailed itinerary is in development! But we’ll include:
Africa and the Middle East
We’ll sample foods from African countries such as Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal and Morocco. We'll also go in search of MIddle Eastern favorites like falafel, shawarma and hummus.
Asia is such a big place, with so much to taste! From west and central Asia, we’ll sample cuisines such as Indian, Persian, Afghan and Nepalese food. From east Asia, we’ll enjoy cuisines like Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Japanese.
We’ll hunt for the best Italian, Greek, French and English foods we can find, such as pastries, pasta, pies and more.
We'll find interesting things to taste from North and South America, such as Caribbean, Mexican, Brazilian, Peruvian and more. And we'll sample some familiar treats from the good old USA.

NOTE: Schedule is subject to change. We'll have tickets and reservations and plans for each day, but this camp takes place in the real world where sometimes things change! Adventure is guaranteed, but no single destination is.
Drop off 8:00-8:30am at Walnut St. train station in Montclair (train departs between 8:15am and 9:30am each day, depending on itinerary)
Return to Walnut St. station between 5:00-6:00pm each day (schedule varies depending on daily activities)
Detailed schedules will be provided to families.
Lunch will be provided each day, along with some extra tastings and treats. We have selected certain foods and experiences to enrich the kids and give them a memorable culinary foundation. Kids are welcome to bring additional spending money for souvenirs or extra treats that are not included in the day's plans.
This camp is great for adventurous and not-so-adventurous eaters alike! Foodie kids will have much to pique their palates, and there will also be plenty of foods that are familiar and enjoyable to most kids. And no matter what we're eating, we never force or pressure kids to taste anything they don't want to try. Kids who are nervous about finding something they will like to eat are welcome to bring a bag lunch - no shame! Adventure Kitchen is all about joyfully encountering food as a means of discovery and connection, and there will be something for everyone as we have fun exploring the world of food around us.
While we will have destinations in mind for each day, we will also take advantage of unexpected adventures as they arise. Side-trips, finds and surprises are par for the course! We'll be walking and relying on public transportation all week long, so kids should wear sturdy walking shoes, dress for the weather, wear sunblock, bring a water bottle and be prepared to carry their own things themselves.
On Monday, before we depart we'll cover NYC "survival skills" to be sure everyone is comfortable and confident for the adventures ahead. We'll discuss train safety and rules like staying where we can see each other, using the bathroom when you can, and other guidelines to be sure everyone is prepared whether this is their first time in NYC or they're a veteran. We have lots of adventures planned, but we'll take things at a pace that keeps everyone feeling safe and included.
Campers each week are accompanied by Lynley Jones (owner and creator of Adventure Kitchen) and another adult assistant familiar with public transportation. Lynley is certified in First Aid and CPR.
We'll post status and pics throughout the week on social media, and parents are welcome to follow our adventures there:
