Established as its own unique specialty summer camp in 2015, Chef Camp was first offered as part of a resident camp which had been in operation in Virginia since 2007. The program faced a challenge when the former owner retired, and sold the property where the camp was operating. Due to the programs popularity there was a movement to keep the camp going, and so thanks to the efforts of former camper families, supporters, and investors, Chef Camp is now under new ownership, and has moved to its new location operating on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While the camp has new ownership, the key leadership remains consistent with the same long-term Camp Director who has been with the program since its start.
The Chef Camp program has been “re-imagined” as an innovative, fun, full-immersion career-oriented culinary program exclusively serving teens.
