The place to start is Basic Jr. Chef Camp! This is where they learn the basics: knife safety, kitchen sanitation, menu reading and preparation, nutrition facts & fiction, composting, table settings, dining etiquette and more!
Each day is a different session in which we give kids the basic skills they need to cook safely and enjoy it! Our focus on building kitchen confidence helps kids feel comfortable with cooking. The program covers these key concepts:
- Knife Skills & Kitchen Safety
- Seasonal International Meal Preparation
- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
- Cooking Techniques
- The Big Picture
Mornings in Basic Camp (excluding the morning we go to the Farm) are spent in the kitchen preparing courses which they eat for lunch.
Monday through Thursday afternoons are spent in activities, seminars and games related to food, nutrition and etiquette.
On the Friday of Basic Camp our Jr. Chef’s prepare a guest buffet luncheon. Jr. Chef’s will have the opportunity to invite two guests to join them for buffet luncheon served from 12:30 – 1:30. Two buffet lunches are included with camp tuition. Additional guest lunches may be purchased, during the week of camp, for $10.00 each.
Monday – Thursday 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM
