Have you ever dreamed of designing and running your own restaurant? Coming up with signature dishes and cooking for a crowd? Then join us for The Dynamite Shop's inaugural Pop-up Restaurant Camp is dedicated to the rich, varied food culture of Brooklyn. Students work together throughout the week alongside our team of instructors and local community chefs to brainstorm the restaurant concept, cook dishes from around the world, visit international and farmers' markets, and prepare for the grand opening, where they'll invite friends and family for a special meal.

Like all of the year-round programming at The Dynamite Shop, we're about teaching kids real cooking skills, empowering them to find their creative niche through food, and celebrating the diversity of our community. Whether it's design, cooking, or food photography - or just eating - students will have a blast this summer with a deep-dive into kitchen life.

June 25 - 29
July 9 - 13
