GEAR UP Birmingham City Schools
Chef Tech Academy: June 23-28, 2019

Chef Tech Academy, developed by Chef Sidney Corum, Founder of Chef Ago Go and Greek Life Services, is being conducted at Auburn University for Gear Up Birmingham students who are interested in cooking, the culinary arts, learning about health wellness, and becoming chefs. This camp is ideal for students who are looking to advance their skills and abilities in the kitchen.

During camp, our highly trained staff of professional chefs will cover all the important areas and information needed to prepare campers for a career in the culinary arts. Campers will not only explore academic opportunities but participate in hands-on master classes in knife skills, food safety, culinary presentation, sauce preparation, grilling, braising and sautéing.

Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.

This camp serves rising 11th and 12th grade GearUp Birmingham students.


Campers will reside in the Hill Dormitories or the Quad dorms. They are designed in suites consisting of two double-occupancy rooms connected by a bathroom.


Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Unlike breakfast and lunch and lunch, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.

Registration opening Spring 2019.
