This is unique, full-day intensive course offers teens the experience of working in a professional kitchen, taking advantage of a teen’s natural ability to learn any subject or new activity.  It culminates with a dinner service:  a menu designed, executed, and served by the students to their invited guests.  Our intention is simple: empower the young individual to cook and eat well for the rest of their lives.This camp has been crafted to provide some serious cooking instruction, but fun is always the main ingredient.
