FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do students typically register for one or multiple weeks?
Our courses are designed so that campers register for one week at a time. However, many campers choose to sign up for multiples week packages to build on their skills. Please note that whether you choose to register for one or several weeks of summer camp, your camper will have a blast and leave camp having learned a new skill and completed a project they can be proud of.

What is the student to staff ratio?
We have raised the standard for learning with small course sizes averaging only 10 campers per chef instructor or TA.
