An introduction to the professional kitchen — designed for beginner cooks with a passion for food, this evening youth program starts with the basics: food safety and sanitation, knife skills, measuring and seasoning. Learn how to follow a recipe and take home your culinary creations to share with your family.

Dress code requirements: All participants are required to wear closed-toe shoes with a good tread — no sandals or open-toe shoes permitted in the kitchens. Long pants are required to be worn in the kitchens — no shorts, capris or low-cut tops. Participants are not permitted to wear nail polish for the duration of this camp. Those with long hair should ensure they bring hair elastics to tie back their hair.

Safety note: Participants are required to adhere to the safety precautions outlined by the instructors — safety infractions may lead to removal from the camp.

Allergy alert: Camp includes the preparation of foods containing nuts. SAIT's kitchens and bakeries process nuts and other allergens.
