Culinary camp is coming quickly to a close. Mediterranean week has flown by and campers are eager to show off their culinary skills to their parents during the appetizer party!
On Thursday, campers learned all about disabilities. Our friend Julie, who is a representative from an organization called Paraquad, taught us all about disabilities and ways people live with them in their everyday lives. Campers rotated through a series of stations where they simulated having a specific disability: utilizing a wheelchair, learning about occupational therapy, and gardening with a visual impairment are a few examples.
We even got to enjoy some fun in the sun at SLU’s campus recreation pool, SLURuba!!! (salt water and palm trees included!)
The countdown to the parent party is just hours away. Campers have been busy all morning both down in the garden and up in the kitchens.
Friday is Herb Day! Campers got the chance to make their own herbal lemonades using herbs fresh from the garden as well as plant their own herb planters and mix lavender hand scrubs.
Up in the kitchens, Baklava (Greek pastry) and Dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) are being baked and wrapped to perfection.
It has been such a fun week. It is hard to see it wrap up to a close. We hope to see you all next year! Happy eating!!!
