Pioneer Cooking Day Camp
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Hancock Park District for a day spent in 1847! This day will allow kids to experience cooking as the pioneers did at the 1847 McKinnis homestead. First you will learn how to start a fire in the old wood stove, as you get ready to cook. Find out what kind of foods would have been prepared and be able to create your own receipt (recipe) book. Once the food is cooked, you’ll be able to sit at the McKinnis table and enjoy a meal and desert of biscuits, beef stew and cookies, that they themselves made on the old fashion three step cast iron wood stove at the McKinnis house.
Recommended to be ages 10-15. Registration required, register with $20 per child by 1 p.m. on, Monday, June 14.
