Peterbrooke Chocolatier Offers Summer Day Camp Options in Locations Across the Southeast, Including Florida, Alabama and Georgia
Kids can be “A Chocolatier for the Day” or have a blast making “It’s Out of This World” confections in a safe and controlled environment as other summer activities remain limited
July 15, 2020 // Franchising.com // JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Peterbrooke Chocolatier (Peterbrooke), the premiere Florida-based confectioner, announced that it will help busy parents by offering its popular summertime day camps for kids of all ages in select stores. Adhering to local and state health guidelines, camp sizes will be limited in the number of children attending based on spacing in each respective shop and some shops will offer virtual camps as an alternative to in-shop camps. As with every summer, Peterbrooke expects camps to fill quickly and due to this year’s limited availability, customers are urged to phone their neighborhood Peterbrooke shop as soon as possible to confirm details.
Peterbrooke’s summer camp this year will feature an “It’s Out of This World” theme that lets kids have a blast learning to make outer space confections including alien marshmallows, galaxy bark, space cloud popcorn, rocket ship Krispy treats, death star apples and light saber pretzel rods. When becoming a “Chocolatier for the Day,” campers learn to dip, decorate and craft chocolate treats including Peterbrooke signature items such as chocolate covered popcorn, caramel apples, dessert pizzas, marshmallows, Oreos, and strawberries, among other items.
Camp times and activities vary by location, so interested parties should phone their neighborhood Peterbrooke. Similarly, ages for campers vary by shop, with some beginning as young as 6 years old, while other shops require children to be at least 8. One shop in Fernandina Beach is offering a special Mommy and Me opportunity for children between ages 2 and 6 with an accompanying adult.
“We are so happy to be able to host our camps again this summer,” said Peterbrooke Chocolatier Chief Operating Officer Jeff Smith. “Over the years, kids and parents have really looked forward to crafting chocolate in our neighborhood shops when school lets out. Especially this year, in light of everything we’re going through, we wanted to offer local families a fun, educational and delicious day camp. Each shop owner and manager is significantly limiting camp sizes while going above and beyond local and state health guidelines to ensure the safest experience possible while making sure everyone still has fun.”
“As summer begins, it can be stressful when it comes to keeping kids engaged, especially given everything that has happened over the last few months,” said Smith. “We knew that Peterbrooke could help. Our redesigned and smaller summer day camp experience will provide kids with a much-needed creative outlet as Peterbrooke continues to take extraordinary steps to safely serve its communities during these trying times.”
