At the Lavner Summer Camps: Culinary Camp in PA and NJ, our campers have a blast learning how to cook (AM session) and bake (PM session). Campers are divided into two groups: Sous Chefs (ages 7 to 10) and Executive Chefs (ages 11 to 14).
Our mission at the Lavner Summer Camps: Culinary Camp is to provide a completely hands-on learning experience in a safe environment that creates a great cooking camp experience! Lavner culinary instructors are excellent cooks and bakers, and have experience with a diverse background of culinary dishes. Campers work with homemade recipes and fresh ingredients. They also learn about healthy eating, kitchen and food safety, and how to work well with others! To achieve great culinary success, this camp provides the consumer science discipline with the artistry of creating great meals.
Throughout the day, campers enjoy both group and individual lessons with our instructors. The variety of dishes and desserts made each week include international and domestic favorites, and vary from week to week. The Lavner Culinary Camp is a fantastic way to meet friends with similar interests, learn life-long skills, and have fun! The best part of each day, of course, is eating the tasty food and desserts, and bringing any extras home for the whole family to enjoy.
The Culinary Camp combines what you may find at a cooking camp and a baking camp. It is an exciting and educational experience in a super fun environment. Our instructors are patient and encourage campers of all abilities to actively partake in all of the cooking and baking lessons. Most facets of the cuisine and desserts are made from scratch so that campers experience the culinary process.
Campers also learn about proper nutrition and diet, as well as food and table preparation. During the baking session, many students even improve their math skills without ever realizing it! Math skills also improve when our campers learn to check inventory for ingredients.
Our goal is to create an environment where campers are willing to express themselves through their dishes in a team-oriented and creative fashion.
A bake off competition takes place every Friday with guest judges and tons of excitement!
All Campers receive: Lavner Camps t-shirt, car magnet, and Recipe Book/Activity Packet.
Lunch is included!
