We are thrilled to offer our Community Enrichment Camp; a program designed to focus on helping serve the community and world around us through local service-based initiatives. Campers will spend the week getting to know Baltimore and giving back to those communities in need. Each morning, we will travel to a different location to serve our city through varying hands-on activities. Activities may include, but are not limited to, visiting the elderly in a retirement community, caring for shelter animals, comforting those who are ill, preparing food and clothes for the homeless or working to clean up our environment are just a few of the activities that will engage your daughter in this meaningful camp experience. Girls will learn the power of serving in our world as we inspire to be conscientious members of our community. In the afternoons, we will return to school to reflect on our experiences of the day and plan for the next day’s adventures.

Below is a list of partners in our community where we will be taking campers this summer:

  • Baltimore Humane Society
  • Our Daily Bread
  • Operation Gratitude
  • Pickersgill Retirement Community
  • Cool Kids Campaign

Never have food challenge reality shows been so popular and Chopped! is a favorite here at Tiny and Gourmet Chefs! We like it so much we decided to base a whole week long camp on the concept. Our version has the added twist of focusing on different cuisines every day of camp. So, each day the Tiny and Gourmet Chef campers will be presented with a basket with 3-4 ingredients, which reflect these different cuisines — French, Italian, Mexican, Asian, and “All-American”. Using those ingredients and working within those cuisines, they will challenge themselves to make mouthwatering specialties, traditional favorites and explore new ingredients, tastes, and combinations.

Tiny Chefs is a 100% nut free company.

Recommendation: If your students would like to attend our Mast Tennis Academy from 9am – 12pm before Chopped!, they are more than welcome.  Students will start their morning with Mast Tennis Academy on the tennis courts (behind St. Paul’s Plus Preschool).  Then, at 12pm, we will have an instructor from the tennis academy walk your students to the main SPSG building where we will transition them, have a quick lunch and get them to their session with Chopped! It is a great way to make a full day program combing two of our amazing programs!  If you are interested in this option, please email spsgsummer@spsfg.orgdirectly and we will help you coordinate registration, payment, etc.
