Chef Tech Academy: June 3-8, 2018
Rising 6th – 12th Grade
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 one-week, residential program provides students the opportunity to learn how much of a role the critical elements – math, science, technology and communication skills play in their development is chefs and leaders in our communities. Campers will learn about food and how to prepare it for maximum taste and nutrition in a way that is hands-on and fun!
What’s more, these young leaders will be equipped with a better understanding of nutrition and the importance of physical fitness. They will be in a position to help their generation battle childhood obesity and diseases like diabetes. Campers will learn about organic vs. processed foods, farm-to-table concepts, gluten and other food allergies, and most importantly, they will have FUN!
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.
Campers will spend majority of their instructional time in the Terrell Dining Facility for their culinary instruction.
