Teens gain skills and confidence in the kitchen


A mouth-watering camp to inspire budding culinary artists

Here’s a mouth-watering summer camp that lives up to its name. Camp Delicious is all about delicious food—preparing it, serving it, learning about it, and most of all, eating it.

During the five days of camp, teens will gain new skills and confidence to create meals, discover new flavors and gain independence in the kitchen.

Throughout the week, campers will participate in tastings and learn where food comes from, how it grows and ways to establish a healthy relationship with food.

Under the guidance of some of Pittsburgh’s most notable chefs and widely respected nutritionists, campers will learn how to turn nature’s raw ingredients into flavorful meals that appeal to all the senses. They will train their palates to appreciate the many distinctive flavors of herbs and spices.

By week’s end, the campers will have blossomed in their abilities to prepare and appreciate real food; they will return to their own home kitchens with the skills and knowledge to create delectable meals for their own families.

Please note:  Camp Delicious! is not designed for those who have significant dietary restrictions, personal or medical.
