Chef Camp is a culinary arts specialty residential summer camp for aspiring young chefs ages 9-17. Chef Camp is for every kid and teen who wants to be a chef- or even just a better cook. After all, cooking is an everyday life skill – we all have to eat! At Chef Camp, campers will learn and practice skills needed for planning, preparing, and serving meals- from slicing and sautéing to sauces and seasoning!
Camper-Chefs will be immersed in cooking sessions in the teaching kitchen daily, plus sessions on other culinary topics- such as gardening, nutrition, menu planning, food-science, cooking techniques, etc.
Culinary curriculum includes kitchen safety, kitchen hygiene, safe food handling, preparation techniques, cooking methods, baking techniques, presentation, table setting, serving, etiquette, nutrition, menu planning, food selection, and cooking foundations. Plus every camper-chef will create their own recipe book so they can repeat what they learn at home!
When not in the kitchen, campers also participate in daily swimming, and fun evening activities to round out their days at camp! Air-conditioned cabins with full bathrooms. ACA Accredited.
