Explore the world of culinary arts
In the professional setting of The Culinary Arts Institute, your child will have the opportunity to learn and explore the wonderful world of foods through demonstration, lectures, and hands-on work in our kitchen.
The busy week will begin with instruction in food safety, proper sanitation and kitchen safety. Each day of camp will find us busy at work as we use practical techniques to produce the recipes of the day that can be easily repeated at home.
As the week progresses, campers will gain practical skills in the correct use of appliances, healthy meal planning and etiquette.
There will be special activities for family and friends on the final day of camp based on what your child has learned. These activities may include mini- demos and treats prepared by the campers.
