All you need to know about Rach's free virtual cooking camp—and how to claim your spot!


With school out and many summer camps closed this year, you may be struggling to fill your kids' free time. 

That's why, starting July 30, Rach is launching Rachael Ray's Yum-O! Cooking Camp, a completely free, virtual cooking class for kids and their families. 

The 16-day camp will feature live, 45-minute cooking lessons every day at 2 p.m. EST led by Rach and her friends. Recipes will be simple enough for kids ages 8-15 to follow along, but adults and tots are invited to join along, too! 

"The first discipline I learned that helped improve my self-esteem, excite all of my senses, and fuel my creativity was and still remains cooking," Rach says. "So I am excited to light some fires in the next few weeks of summer with our virtual cooking camp while staying in and being safe!"

The classes, which will be taught over Zoom, are free to all, but you do have to reserve a spot, so head to now to claim yours before they fill up!
