Culinary and Bakery Boot Camps

Boot Camp Description

Culinary and Bakery Boot Camp are week-long day camps taught on UAA's campus by a culinary arts faculty member. Participants are instructed in cooking and baking at beginning and intermediate levels.

They also are taught kitchen safety and sanitation practices, how to read a recipe, and cooking techniques, not to mention how to make yummy dishes such as hummus with vegetable crudité and mouth-watering baked goods such as muffins and scones.

Campers are outfitted in true culinary attire with a chef jacket, toque, and apron, which they must wear each day they attend camp.

What Our Campers Are Saying ...

Thomas Grant - Culinary Boot Camp 2013

“(I came) so I could learn new recipes other than mac 'n' cheese and camping food. I wanted food I could easily make at home. My whole family cooks—both parents and my aunt and uncle cook. I am planning to volunteer at Pioneer Home and bake with one of the residents there who loves to cook.”
