CAMP DATES: June 12-16 & June 19-23, 2023
Campers who attend more than one week will experience a unique curriculum exploring different ingredients, technique and global cuisines from week to week.
Join the Circle City chefs for a week of outdoor culinary skill building! Campers, ages 7+, will start the day tending and harvesting from the beautiful Little Pond Gardens, a privately owned garden space with outdoor kitchen and acres of beautiful trails, creek, and nature to explore.
Our chef instructor will lead them through a culinary introduction to all the basic skills needed to get them started in the kitchen at home and beyond. Campers will prepare all of their snacks and meals for the day in our rustic outdoor open air kitchen located right next to the garden.
When not cooking or exploring the gardens, our epicurean enthusiasts will be doing art projects, hiking the trails, or cooling off in the creek.
Some of the skills covered will be: basic gardening practices, nutrition, kitchen science, knife skills, safety & sanitation, knowledge of herbs & spices, recipe following, kitchen math, and many various cooking techniques.
