Summer camps are designed for kids and teens to learn culinary skills and develop confidence and independence. Classes are from 9:00-4:00 pm.

We will take our students on a culinary journey in this hands-on cooking and baking camp!  Students will learn how to make global recipes while igniting creativity, strengthening skills, and building confidence during each session. Students will complete this program feeling excited to take on more challenges in. the kitchen. Students will learn foundational and advanced cooking and baking skills as well as the utilization of kitchen equipment under the supervision of the lead chef instructor. This program is suitable for beginners and intermediate cooks.

Our goal is to equip and expose students to hands-on recipes around the world. Our young chefs will learn about different global flavours. We will step by step teach our students how to prepare these meals, and appreciate new foods, new flavours and diverse cultures. Students will be empowered to execute sweet and savoury recipes at home so as to help cook meals at home and prepare lunches for school. Our welcoming environment provides a “real” setting so that the students can take what they learn at NCC to their own homes. Students will acquire the knowledge, experience, and confidence to build lifelong cooking skills that can ignite creativity, and build self-esteem. Students will eat what they prepare, build confidence, and create memories that will last forever.
