Some Valdosta and Lowndes County children began Monday getting to experience what it's like to be a chef.

The Valdosta-Lowndes Parks and Rec Authority kicked off its Kids Kitchen Summer day camp Monday.

It lasts all week. Monday, the children got started by making their own pizzas for lunch. The children also completed a ropes course, which was designed to teach them team building skills and that healthy living means more than just eating healthy.

"I love cooking and when I got here, I started to like it a lot," said 8 year-old participant Loughren Haden, excitedly. "It seems really fun for me and I enjoy it."

The rest of the week was scheduled to include various food-related activities such as a tour of a local farm, a tour of Georgia's only olive press, getting to work with a chef at a restaurant, and a cooking competition.
