UCann Cook Camps

 

During the summer UConn Dining holds two culinary camps for children aged 10-13. Each camp is two days and includes working one-on-one with our chefs and bakers to learn kitchen basics, food preparation, and how to create some tasty recipes. Each session also includes local field trips to UConn Dairy Bar/Creamery, UConn Bakery, or UConn Spring Valley Student Farm.

Previous kitchen experience is not required and you do not need to attend camp 101 to register for 102. Each camp occurs at Gelfenbien Commons dining hall on the UConn Storrs campus (easy access off Rt 195). Space is limited to around 20 participants in each session so register today!
