Advanced Chef Tech Academy: July 21-26, 2019
Rising 6th – 12th Grade
Advanced Chef Tech Academy, developed by Chef Sidney Corum, Founder of Chef Ago Go and Greek Life Services, is being conducted along with Tiger Dining at Auburn University for students who are interested in cooking, the culinary arts, learning about health wellness, and becoming chefs. This camp is ideal for students with previous culinary experience and interest 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.
Campers will have various meal options for breakfast in The Student Center. Lunch will be personally cooked by each team of students in the Terrell Dining Facility. Unlike breakfast and lunch, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.
