Culinary Summer Programs:  

“Thank you so much for Alex’s wonderful week at campusNYC! He did not stop talking about the great experience he had, and would definitely love to return next year.  He especially enjoyed getting to know you and told me about all the wonderful talks you two had. I knew this program would be a great fit for him and I am pleasantly surprised at just how much he got out of it. He enjoyed working with the Chefs very much and made friends with many of the other campers. He is looking forward to coming back next year and said he would love to attend a two-week session.”

– Take care, Nadia (2018 Parent)

SESSION 1 Detail (4th Of July Information):

Because the 4th of July falls on a Monday, and the building and kitchen are fully closed on that day, our schedule is a little different for this session this year.  The session will look like this:

Sunday June 26:  First day of camp (residential students check-in, day students attend optional mixer 3-7pm)

Monday June 27 – Saturday July 2nd:  6 straight days of cooking in the kitchen 10am – 6pm!

Sunday July 3rd, Monday July 4th:  Day students off; residential students participate in our usual activities for our weekend program; Sunday is a day of rest, sleep-in, and choose to go to a number of activities offered by the staff including hang-out in Central Park, go to Coney Island, cruise around NYC, weather and student-wishes affect these options.  Monday July 4th we will do the same.  What we do not do is go to the river with the throngs of tourists to sit on the FDR highway like chumps… our staff are NYC residents so we know how to find the awesomeness as usual!)

Tuesday July 5 – Saturday July 9: cooking camp as usual with Chopped held Friday 3pm as usual!

COVID Vax and a negative PCR test required: 

All students/staff at campusNYC are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the time their session or employment begins. In addition, all students and staff must present a negative COVID PCR test taken within 3 days of arrival to camp. 

In addition, all students and staff agree to follow the local rules wherever we are, in buildings, venues, areas, and even cities and states.  If a venue has a mask-required rule, then we will wear masks.  Flagrantly failing to follow this rule can result in dismissal from the program. 

Refund Policy in the age of COVID: safety and financial security:

You can register for our 2022 Summer Culinary programs with confidence! If the program is cancelled for any reason, we would issue full and complete refunds. In addition, students may cancel their registrations for any reason by June 1st, 2022 and receive a full refund including the deposit. If at any time Summer Culinary closes a program location, students may choose to switch to another location, receive a full refund or pre-register for 2023 and lock in current pricing.

On or before June 1st:

A $1000 deposit is due to create a registration. Until that date students can choose to withdraw for any reason and all tuition, including additional optional charges, is refundable for any reason including the $1000 deposit.

After June 1st:

For new registrants:  After June 1st all registrations must be paid in full at the time of registration. After this date no paid tuition, including additional charges, will be refunded for any student who no-shows, withdraws or is dismissed for any reason.  Spaces only on a space-available basis; wait lists do exist and can be found inside the registration system for most current update.  

For current registrants (who registered before June 1st):  All remaining balances are now due.

EMBROIDERED PERSONALIZED CHEF JACKET:  Please note, every student who registers before June 1st shall receive a chef jacket with their chosen name embroidered on it which is just very cool.  Any registration received after June 1 (if there are any spaces available at that time) will not have their jacket embroidered due to the time restraints in making the order.

Enrollment process: Admission is rolling and subject to closure upon the program reaching maximum enrollment. We do not require letters of recommendation, transcripts, essays or pictures of previous culinary masterpieces. Applications will be accepted until a week before the program begins, or when the program fills, whichever occurs first. It is recommended that students enroll as early as possible to reserve their space at our premier culinary summer program.  Check our FAQs or call us for further answers!

Optional Airport Service: Pickup and / or Drop-off

We offer pick-up/drop-off service from JFK and LGA (LaGuardia) airports. Please note:  pickup / drop-off is NOT available at Newark (EWR) airport.  We will communicate directly with you once you purchase this option about all the details… we know how critical it is to do this part right!

Arrival Day/1st day of session:  Preferred times: Arrive by 1PM

Departure Day/last day of session:  Preferred times: Depart before noon

Cost:  $95/one-way and $175/round-trip (choose either way or both ways)

“Actually, thank YOU! That parent info/Q&A was the first time in two years that I have left a “school meeting” feeling more positively about a program. In any event, my thanks to you and your colleagues for the bright spot of hope. Quinn and I are both super excited for the time he is going to spend with you, and I am already hoping that future summers might include even more of it! VERY best wishes” – Elysabeth (2021 Parent)
