This camp is designed to build the following character traits:
Creativity: This program places strong emphasis on exploring different elements of culinary arts and creating your own culinary adventures.
Curiosity: Students will approach this program with curiosity through an opportunity to explore local food systems and how different flavours fit together to create exquisite food.
Students will spend their days learning about the process of food production through authentic hands-on learning experiences. Students will roll up their sleeves and learn introductory knife skills, food preparation techniques, and the basics around creating and presenting new ideas for food with a focus on locally sourced food. Some of the food prepared will be donated to a local food bank. There will be an opportunity for students to earn community service hours as an element of this program. The overnight program is rounded out by evening programming at our beautiful rural waterfront campus.
