SONGWRITING with Don Lowe
July 23 – 27

Think about songs that you love to listen to, songs you comb through your CDs or playlists for because you just have to hear them. Don’t take these songs you love for granted. Somewhere, sometime, someone sat around (or walked around) and started writing that song. It probably started with a lyric or a melody, but possibly with an objective or even a “cause” in mind. And though these songs may have started out easy for the songwriter (inspiration!), they were each the result of songwriter crafting and work (perspiration!). In this workshop, we will work towards developing your inspiration and crafting a memorable song.

Kids Travel the World

Let’s go “on vacation” at Hunt Hill Farm as we Travel America in our kitchen!

Around Cook the World
August 13 – 17
The United States is a melting pot of various cuisines from Around the World. We are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sample and enjoy foods from around the world by visiting area restaurants. However, once you learn about different ingredients used to create other cuisines and then apply classic cooking techniques, it is easy to enjoy these exotic tastes in your own home. In this class, teens will be introduced to a variety of foods from Around the World and learn how they can prepare them at home. This 5-day cooking series will be as fun as it is tasty!
