Spice up your summer!

Campers create delicious food inspired by cuisine from around the world—while having a blast!

Instructors lead culinary novices and junior chefs in culinary techniques and safety while encouraging artistic flair and creativity. Campers gain confidence with the tools of the trade in our commercial grade kitchens.

Knives, thermometers, spoons and scales are part of the fun—although no Gordon Ramsay screaming allowed.

Campers learn the basics for appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts to take home and wow family and friends.

Campers wrap up their week with Pali’s colossal Friday cooking competition. Working in small groups, campers put their new culinary skills to the test to impress the judges and rule supreme, “Iron Chef” style!

  • Create appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts
