campusNYC: Culinary summer camps for ages 12 – 17

“I just want to say thank you for everything! I loved camp! My favorite recipe was of course learning to make chocolate glazes, because I love chocolate!  Seriously though I cooked so many great recipes.  I came to learn more about making desserts and baking and I did!”  – Murphy (2016 Student) 


At our culinary summer camps, we aim to expose students to new flavors and challenge their culinary abilities. With over 100+ recipes in our cookbook, all made from scratch, we focus on enhancing skills, refining techniques, and building conceptual knowledge. Our menu showcases a variety of international cuisines, such as those from Cuba, France, Italy, Indonesia, Thailand, India, China, Japan, and the US. Although it’s the big flavors that often grab the students’ attention, it’s often the smaller details, like precise plating, smooth glazing, and perfectly executed sauces, that bring the most satisfaction.
