Not Your Average Summer Camp

Cooking classes for kids launch at Surfas

Weenie roasts and smushing s’mores do not gourmet cooking experiences make—but then, that’s the old version of summer camp. This summer, future chefs can hone their chops with a Surfas Culinary District advanced cooking camp. With a variety of two-day camps broken into age groups, kids can learn everything profiteroles to pistachio pistou, Gougeres to gratin. Teens cook for three hours a day; younger children, two. Not a roasting stick in sight.
