CHEF CAMP-OUTER BANKS!
Culinary Residential Summer Program For Teens Ages 13-18
Do you dream of becoming a chef? Do you love to experiment with food and flavors? Do you spend your days watching cooking TV shows? Do you want to develop your cooking techniques and create great meals?....Then Chef Camp is THE place for you! Chef Camp is for every teen who wants to be chef (or maybe just a better cook - after all, cooking is an everyday life skill – we all have to eat! )
At Chef Camp, we combine hands-on culinary instruction and meal preparation with restaurant tours, demos & tastings, guest chefs & experts, visits to local seafood and farmers markets, and other “foodie-related” destinations. A “beach break” is also scheduled daily for relaxing, swimming, and enjoying the local area!
Chef Camp-Outer Banks is designed for teens ages 13-18 who have a strong interest in culinary arts, a desire to explore a variety of cooking techniques, and a passion for creating fabulous food! Prior formal cooking instruction is not equired to enjoy!
Chef Camp - Outer Banks is a unique twist on teen summer programing. Rather than typical camp cabins (or otherwise camping out and "roughing it") the program is comfortably situated in a rental home in the Outer Banks of North Carolina as its "home base". Teen-chefs stay in air-conditioned bunk bedrooms, complete with full bathrooms, and with camp counselors present nearby for supervision.
Chef Camp is a small group enrollment program, accepting no more than 16 participants per session. Our small size enhances the quality of programming, and allows us to meet the needs of teens in an individual way. With a high ratio of staff-to-participants, we are able to provide personal attention for teen-chefs in building culinary confidence and learning new skills. This small size also allows us to be intentional in building a community where teens share key experiences and quickly bond to become a close knit group that creates strong, positive relationships.
