For parents who are looking for a new way to entertain their kids amid the coronavirus pandemic while they wait for school to be back in session, Rachael Ray has you covered.

The chef and television personality, 51, is set to host a daily interactive free virtual summer cooking camp for kids and their families. Beginning July 30, Rachael Ray's Yum-O! Cooking Camp will last for just over two weeks.

Presented by Shipt and powered by the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City and South Beach Wine & Food Festivals, each Zoom camp "session" will last about 45 minutes and teach children how to whip up some simple, tasty recipes.

Ray will be joined by a slew of fellow celebrity chefs during her lessons, including but not limited to Bobby Flay, Duff Goldman, Anne Burrell, Carla Hall and Buddy Valastro.

"This interactive online cooking camp will bring kids and their families into the kitchen with their favorite culinary stars, TikTok personalities and celebrity guests — live, every day for a summer program you won't want to miss!" the camp's website reads.

The target age group, according to the website, "is 8-15 years old, but everyone is welcome to join."

"We encourage parents to participate with their kids so they can produce the recipes along with the chef host and ensure kitchen safety," the site continues.

The camp's proceeds from optional online donations and sponsorships will benefit "two incredible organizations both of which provide support for youth development and empowerment: Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Rachael Ray Yum-o! scholarship for students to attend Florida International University's Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management."

While the camp is free, each session does require pre-registration. Prospective campers can sign up for sessions now at rrcookingcamp.com/classes, where they can choose from lessons like macaroni and cheese with Flay, baking with Goldman, spaghetti with Ray and more.

Rachael Ray's Yum-O! Cooking Camp — sponsored by Shipt, Meyer, Conagra and Barilla — begins July 30, airing every day on Zoom at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT through Aug. 14.
