Through demonstrations and personalized instruction from our culinary staff, students will learn different cooking techniques and healthy substitutions. Subjects such as kitchen safety and clean-up are emphasized. In addition to cooking skills the chefs will examine nutritional value, portion size, and table presentation.
Participants in Chefs in Motion develop culinary skills, prepare healthy foods and learn the fundamentals of table etiquette while training to walk/run a 5k.
Chefs in Motion is an overall wellness program that combines running/walking and cooking to give youth the opportunity to participate in non-competitive physical activities with a nutritional cooking component. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome. This season is limited to 15 participants per age group.
Each week, the participants will start by engaging in physical activity to promote regular exercise and overall health. Afterwards, they move into the kitchen where students will learn about cooking techniques as well as nutrition and health-conscious decision making.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend and participate with their child/children.
Our Future Iron Chefs will learn the basics of food preparation, presentation, and nutrition in a hands-on cooking environment. Chefs will prepare healthy meals daily, including snacks and desserts.
Bring a backpack with a refillable water bottle, snacks, and sunscreen. Closed toed shoes are also required and hair needs to be tied back while cooking. The campers will cook their own lunch during their cooking classes and eat it! Equipment is provided for camp classes; however, campers may bring their own equipment.
