2019 Summer Camps
This summer, we are partnering with Simran and Stacie of A Little Yumminess to offer five sessions of youth camp. Many of our members have taken a class about Indian cuisine with Simran and Stacie at our 18th St. Classroom, and we're happy to introduce you and your youth to their longstanding summer programming, featuring some familiar faces of 18 Reasons' instructors. To register Sessions 1-4 of 2019 Summer Camp, please visit A Little Yumminess's website (click here).
Session 5: Teen Culinary Immersion
Date and Time: July 22-27, 2019, 10 am-2 pm
Age Group: Entering 9th grade to entering college
This course is structured to give students the knowledge to confidently intuit their way through the kitchen and find meaning and value in the ingredients they work with. The curriculum is based on 18 Reasons’ mission of empowerment, creativity, sustainability, and community. Students begin the series with an introduction to kitchen techniques, including knife skills, culinary terms, and mise en place. Students will progress through techniques for cooking vegetables and meats. They will create recipes, develop menus, learn about food cultures from around the world, and gain insight into food professions. The course culminates in a “Chopped” -style finale. Drawing on everything they have learned, and with our chefs’ guidance, they will cook up a meal of their own creation and serve it to their families.
As an additional opportunity, are you entering 9th grade or already in high school and looking for another way to get involved with food? Do you love to cook? Are you a teamwork superstar? Are you looking for a chance to develop leadership skills while exploring cuisines around the world? A Little Yumminess is looking for counselors and junior counselors to be part of our summer camp team. You will help ensure a safe, positive experience for our campers, have the opportunity to help with cooking projects, and will provide important behind-the-scenes support. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
