Spoutwood’s CHEFS program designed to teach youth, ages 9-17, empowers young people to become ambassadors for healthy eating through hands-on cooking activities.

Join us for CHEFS Camp: 5 days days of fun and hands-on activities designed to teach youth how to cook using fresh, healthful ingredients from Spoutwood Farm. Young CHEFS not only learn culinary skills, but also nutrition, teamwork, and leadership as they make (and taste) delicious multicultural recipes and present their finished products.

The CHEFS learn about the country of origin for each recipe, experience new foods and flavors, and harvest naturally grown ingredients straight from the farm.

2018 CHEFS Camp will run this summer from

July 23 – July 27
9am – 1pm

5-days for $125

(fees include lunch for each participant)
(25% CSA member and sibling discounts. Full and partial scholarships available.)
