Food-Focused Activities for Kids
While aboard our yachts on a family departure, kids of any age can take part in a variety of food-focused activities, including…
Using toppings of their choosing including pepperoni, ham, various cheeses, oregano, basil, bacon, vegetables, etc. kids enjoy cooking their very own pizzas. Once complete, the pizzas are then served proudly to their family members.
Chocolate Fondue Bar
Our very own chocolate factory fit for Charlie himself! Kids are given the opportunity to wow their families with the preparation of a delicious dessert while simultaneously satisfying their own sweet tooth. The fondue is served with marshmallows, banana, strawberries, grapes, and kiwi.
Hot Dog Bar
The sausages are pre-prepared by the staff leaving kids to garnish their cooked dogs to their heart’s content. Toppings include sweet corn, cheese sauce, BBQ sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, ranch sauce, mustard, pickles, onion, mozzarella cheese, and chips.
Lookout Mrs. Fields! Our chefs work together with their guest baker’s apprentices to churn out delicious chocolate chip cookies by guiding their young pastry chefs through every step along the way. Once the process is complete, the cookies are baked and served for everyone to enjoy.
Half food preparation, half art installation, our chefs teach kids techniques to create their favorite animals and cartoon characters out of fruit, all without the use of knives or any other potentially harmful kitchen implements.
The chef bakes off, then presents the cupcakes to his young apprentices in the main area where they proceed to decorate them using multi-colored frosting and other edible treats.
These Family Departure trips tend to book up quickly, so be sure to act fast. More detailed information on family departure activities can be found here.
