Welcome to
VeryVera Cooking Camp!

Vera Stewart’s love of teaching started when she graduated from the University of Georgia in 1974 with a degree in Home Economics Education. It continued through a successful catering and mail order career when in 2004, VeryVera Cooking Camp was founded. For 13 years, VeryVera Cooking Camp has provided a unique summer camp experience for children ages 6-14 in Augusta, GA. Students attend a one-week session during our 6-week program held in June and July, where they master cooking skills, etiquette, and life lessons that will create “layers of success” for their future!


VeryVera Cooking Campers spend 5 days learning about food, getting “hands-on” in the kitchen, packaging their treats, and learning entrepreneurship in the process. Practicing and understanding the importance of etiquette and teamwork will be incorporated into the daily activities.



Want to get a taste of the Summer Camp experience? Sign your child up for one of our Saturday Camps! Our Spring 2017 series includes a Saturday Camp in May. Drop your children off at 9:00, check some items off your to-do list, pick them back up at 1:00, and get ready to hear all about what they learned and created at our Saturday Camp!

Camp was a quick idea in 2004 that filled a gap due to a lack of booked catering business for the summer months. As with any VeryVera project, we gave it everything we had. Now moving into its 14th year, VeryVera Camp is marked as a “must-do” for area young people. I am as passionate about the Camp now as I was when it was created. Thank you for stopping by and see you in the summer!
