Summer Baking Camp 2019

Join us for one of our 4-Day Baking Camps, over nine weeks, all summer long! Kids have a blast with Tal at the bakery learning, stirring, baking, tasting, taking home their creations and making new friends!

Every session is taught by Tal Sendrovitz herself, the owner of Tal’s Patisserie, mother of 3 and bakery teacher for 10+ years.

New this year, we’ve optimized your child’s experience by creating 3 different Programs with activities perfect for your child’s preferred age AND favorite treats! See our programs and dates below for your child’s perfect experience.

If your child has a peanut allergy, not to fear! Tal’s has been a peanut-free bakery since its inception in 2012. For other nut allergies, please let us know and we will ensure our environment will accommodate his/her needs.
