Studies show that a child who knows his way around the kitchen is more likely to eat well and less likely to get lost inside the crock pot. Give kids an internal kitchen compass with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of cooking classes or camps at The Kids Cooking Corner in Vancouver, Washington.

Featured on KOIN TV, KGW, and FOX12, The Kids Cooking Corner teaches children how to have fun in the kitchen while promoting self-reliance and cultivating healthy practices. Instructors edify young eaters and welcome children with special needs in their series of kids' classes ($35 each), including the Assistant Chef program for kids 3–6 and the Senior Chef series for teens and tweens aged 12 and older or babies who pass a prerequisite in Hot Pocket theory. Sessions convey the basics of cooking safely, including operating the stove, following a recipe, and using a microwave without rousing the spirits nested inside. Kids can take a cross-continental culinary adventure with the Around the World classes, which drops them into different corners of the map each week, using the regional recipes and the cultural nuances of various countries.

Beginning on either July 18 or August 15 (subject to availability), Kids Cooking Corner's Ultimate Camp ($299 for the week) embeds kids aged 5–12 in five days of hands-on activities, including cooking, gardening, crafting, and pottery. Children unearth the significance of food cultivation by digging up fresh ingredients and food historians from the on-site garden and glean appreciation of international cuisine by crafting a passport's worth of meals, including lumpia, yakisoba, and sushi. Kids learn to think outside the breadbox with Iron Chef –style games and cupcake wars, in which foods such as meatloaf and mac 'n' cheese are molded into cupcake-shaped comestibles.

The Kids Cooking Corner is in the process of becoming a non-profit organization; all teachers at the school are volunteers, and all profits are used to further enrich the school.

The Kids Cooking Corner

From the outside, the nonprofit, 100% volunteer-run Kids Cooking Corner has the whimsical appearance of a fairy-tale cottage, its white siding accented by baby-blue paint and surrounded by fresh flowers and topiaries. The interior of the century-old house is equally exciting to youngsters, though not because of a prince or fairy godmother willing to do all of the heavy lifting. Children work hard at The Kids Cooking Corner, but the work is disguised in fun and rewarded with tasty snacks. Instructors warmly welcome foster children and children with special needs into their classrooms.

Helmed by chef, health enthusiast, and mother of three Heidi O'Connor, the volunteers at The Kids Cooking Corner strive to educate whippersnappers on nutrition, food safety, and food prep, often helping picky eaters try new foods along the way. Instructors incorporate math, science, and reading into curricula, teaching real-world applications for kids' school-sourced skills. Children definitely get their hands dirty, however: in spring and summer, they spend time in The Kids Cooking Corner garden, getting firsthand experience working with ingredients from seed to plate. Brightly painted walls, a playful party room, and a fully stocked kitchen provide a safe, exciting environment for kids to get crafty with edibles during each class, as well as during summer camps, parties, and peaceful games of food baseball.
