Junior Chef Summer Camp Aug 12-14 (ages 10-14 years)
Summer is not boring at the Salt Lake Culinary Center! Our Junior Chef Summer Camp series will motivate, challenge, and excite your junior foodie! Campers will spend their time in our interactive, professional school kitchen learning new skills and culinary techniques while sparking their creativity.
During each three-day series, campers will create international cuisine** menus, organize shopping lists, learn proper food safety and handling, basic knife skills, how to set a table and properly serve. Campers will also learn how to fully plan and prepare an entire meal including appetizer, salad, entree dessert, and beverage.
Our Junior Chefs Summer Camp series are designed as a complete hands-on cooking experience. Your junior chef will not only learn valuable kitchen skills, the importance of making healthy food choices, but will also gain confidence while creating a delicious summer memory to share with family and friends all year long.
