Camps for Teens

If you love everything food, are the perfect party planner or dream of one day running or owning your own business, take a close look at our teen camps. These fun, educational and challenging culinary camps are a great way to get a glimpse into a future career in culinary arts, hospitality management or business. Designed for high school students between the ages of 13-18, these one, two or three week camps are hands-on and taught by qualified Kendall instructors at Kendall’s campus.

We’re proud to offer outstanding opportunities for the aspiring chef, the next top hotel GM, your future CEO or the creative genius in the family! High school students between the ages of 13-18 are invited to take part in our fun and educational summer camp experience at Kendall’s state-of-the-art facility located on Chicago’s Goose Island.

Overnight campers live in Kendall’s residence hall and enjoy additional supervised activities such as attending a Broadway in Chicago show, dining at one of Chicago’s amazing restaurants, and boat tours of downtown Chicago.
