Junior Chef Camp ~ Five Day

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?  Here's the chance to sign up your Junior Chef for a 5-day 'camp' at the Hot Stove Society!

Your aspiring chefs, ages 10-15, are more than ready to learn real cooking skills and techniques that will reward them with a heightened appreciation for food, a sense of accomplishment, and a lifetime of pleasure.

Junior Chef Camp includes 5 days, Monday July 9th through Friday, July 13th.  Each 5-hour day, from 9am-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 we'll pack up some of the delicious food the Junior Chefs make each day, so they can take it home and proudly share the bounty with the whole family.

A brief description of each day's itinerary follows, but for more details of if you have any questions please contact [email protected]

(Note: you must sign up for the series: individual days are not sold separately)
