Camp Salud! Summer Camp for Chefs in Training

Our Salud! summer camp offers one week of fun and learning in a hands-on kitchen experience. Our chefs work with our students to learn valuable cooking skills while making authentic recipes from around the world. This year we are visiting 5 different continents with a different menu each day. No passport is needed as our budding chefs learn basic fundamentals that can last a lifetime. Using the highest quality and freshest ingredients, students will be exposed to a wide variety of fun, healthy foods. Students will love showing off their new skills on the last day of camp as they host an invited guest to join them.

Classes are age specific and your student should be the proper age prior to class date. We limit our classes to 12 students and classes begin promptly at 10:00 AM, Monday thru Friday. While we will work with any allergies, it is not always possible to change recipes. If your child has an allergy, please give us notice prior to class so we can discuss this with a parent. If your student has any issues that might prevent them from having a complete classroom experience, please let us know. We want all of our students to have a fun and safe week.

Due to the popularity of our summer camps, all camps have a two week cancellation policy in order to receive a full refund.
