Staff Info:

Culinary Arts Chef Instructors and more

The staff at campusNYC are what make the entire program so awesome!  For the 10th year in a row, Lindsay will be the Camp Director and can help you with any questions! 

Teaching staff – the culinary arts chef staff – are all well-versed industry professionals with real-world professional culinary experience with summer camp and or educational/teaching backgrounds.  

Residential staff are all highly trained in safety and security… and are truly out to create community inside each session, and to create it newly.  That means that each session starts fresh, a blank slate, and it is the students themselves who create the community.  So every session the vibe is new:  we create an experience that is at once supportive, connective, and transformative.

All staff are of course fully background checked… and fully vaccinated against COVID this year!

Here is the “All about campusNYC Video”

Most of our staff return year after year, and some of our students have gone on to become staff as well! Its about the culture we create. We work very very hard to create the framework for that culture at camp… and we let the students create the vibe newly each session. With decades of cumulative experience and over 75,000 kids through our programs collectively, we get that in the end it is about your student, and their experience, and thats what matters. We keep it safe, we make it fun, and we know learning will occur in that environment.

All SC culinary arts chef staff are fully background checked and trained to manage this kind of program, in the city, with power and ease. We train together to create an empowering context for each and every student.

All SC programs feature an in-staff EMT or nurse that lives in the residence hall to provide 24-hour access.
