Culinary Camp for KidsCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- The Culinary Arts Institute at The W will host its 13th annual Culinary Camp for Kids during the month of June. Students will have the opportunity to learn and explore the wonderful world of foods through demonstration, lectures and hands-on work in the kitchen.


Participants will enjoy the experience of tasting new food under the instruction of Chef Mary Helen Hawkins, an alumna of The W’s Culinary Arts Institute and instructor for the Viking School in Greenwood. 

Sessions will be held:
Grades 2 and 3--June 3-7, 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Grades 4, 5, 6--June 10-14, 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Grades 4, 5, 6--June 17-21, 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Grades 7-12--June 24-28, 12:30-5 p.m.

Students will begin the week with instruction in food safety, proper sanitation and kitchen safety. Each day they will use practical techniques to produce recipes of the day that can easily be replicated in the home.

"The Culinary Arts Institute at The W is proud of our culinary camp for kids. It helps teach children of all ages the benefits of good nutrition, teaches organizational skills and helps to develop good etiquette skills,” said Chef Erich Ogle, director and assistant professor of the Culinary Arts Institute.

Students will also prepare special activities on the final day for family and friends including, mini-demos and treats.

Since the programs inception, more than 75 students have attended each summer.
