You'll learn basic techniques that will help you decorate beautiful and fun cookies for any occasion.

  • While you're here, you can enjoy the amazing Smoky Mountains and create an unforgettable weekend full of beautiful cookies and gorgeous scenery.

So if you want to learn about cookies, see a beautiful part of our country, and make lasting friendships, you should consider Cookie Camp. I know I'd love to see you and make more wonderful cookie friends!

We all know that 2020 has been difficult due to Covid-19, and hopefully, the vaccine will help get this under control. If not, classes may be rescheduled or canceled if cases don't improve. We will follow the guidelines of staying six feet apart, wearing masks and taking precautions. If Covid-19 does not decrease, we may cancel the class with full refunds to all who have signed up.
