Camp Descriptions

Baking Camp Level I
In this week long camp, students will learn the basics of baking breads, pastries, cakes and confections. Scaling and organization in the kitchen will also be taught.

Baking Camp Level II
Students will build on techniques learned in Level I, including croissants, macarons, mousse, and plated desserts!

Cake Camp Level I
Students will learn to bake, fill, and frost cupcakes and celebration cakes. Buttercream piping, fondant, and modeling techniques will be used so that students can create a variety of designs. The final project is a celebration cake that the students will design using all their new skills!

Cake Camp Level II
Students will continue to develop their piping & sugar modeling skills. Students will work on techniques and decorations to create royal iced sugar cookies, sugar flowers, and a final project for an inter-camp Youth Chef Culinary Camp Sugar Art Show!

Culinary Camp Level I
Students will learn how to make starters, entrees, and dessert. Through these stations, students will learn knife skills, how to make soups, stocks, and sauces, cooking methods, meat and seafood cookery, vegetable, fruit, bean and grain cookery, and basic baking and pastry techniques. Students will also learn the importance of cleaning and sanitizing, and will rotate through stations where they will gain basic knowledge of how to maintain a clean kitchen. Life skills such as teamwork, dependability, communication skills, organization, nutrition, and leadership skills will be emphasized.

Culinary Camp Level II
Students will continue to hone their knife skills and learn more advanced fundamentals of cooking and baking.

Culinary Camp Level III
Students will enjoy a week of competition and culinary discovery! The competition will encompass both hot and cold food preparation and presentation. Students will demonstrate their knowledge, creativity, and skills through the production of a three-course menu in a full day competition. They will rotate through these stations throughout the week for a final competition on the last day (one item per station). The contestants will be rated on their organization, knife skills, cooking techniques, creative presentation, sanitation food safety techniques, and above all, the quality and flavor of their prepared items. Students will work from a market basket format and write their own menu throughout the week.
