If you love being creative, then this camp is a must! Campers will be given a different ingredient every day that they will prepare multiple dishes ranging from appetizer to dessert.

Back to the Basics (July 17-21)
If you haven’t had much experience in the kitchen before, this one is for you. We all start somewhere so why not start with simpler recipes like spaghetti and meatballs or chicken noodle soup to get our taste buds going. You can still bet on fresh ingredients and local produce to make a well balanced meal!

For most Americans, summer means hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, and ice cream.
