5-Day Junior Chef Camp

5-Day Junior Chef Camp

July 22nd - July 26th

Does your kid love to get into the kitchen and cook? Is he or she fascinated by restaurants, cooking shows, and all those ‘foodie’ ingredients on display at the supermarket? Then you’ll want to sign up your Junior Chef for this 5-day series at the Hot Stove Society!

Junior Chef Camp is ideal for ages 10 to 13. Your aspiring chefs are more than ready to learn real cooking skills and techniques that will reward them with a lifetime of pleasure, fun, a heightened appreciation of food, and a sense of accomplishment.

Junior Chef Camp includes 5 days, Monday July 22 through Friday July 26.  Each 5-hour day, from 9am to 2pm, includes both breakfast and lunch. The kids will be taught by our talented Chef Instructor Bridget Charters who has decades of experience teaching culinary school.  Classes include plenty of hands-on cooking, and every day we’ll pack up lots of goodies for the Junior Chefs to take home, so they can show off and proudly share what they learned to make in class with the whole family

Think about all the inspired meals your kid will cook up for the family when Junior Chef Camp is over!
