The program runs from 10am to 6pm, giving you ample time to perfect your skills using the best equipment available. What culinary delights do you hope to create during your time with us?
In contrast to other summer cooking camps that only provide limited access to equipment and ingredients, our program is truly focused on the culinary arts, giving students the opportunity to master their craft in a professional environment.
We make all of our 100+ recipes from scratch; we have professional commercial kitchens to work in, and our staff is the best. Our campusSEA kitchen is located at Seattle Culinary Academy at Central Seattle College: 1701 Broadway. Seattle, WA 98122. See map HERE!
When it comes to picking the perfect kitchen for our high school chef summer program, we didn’t just settle for any old space. We scoured the Seattle area for the best of the best. And let’s just say, we said goodbye to boring hot plates and hello to pro-level equipment! Some of the students from our campusLA location are planning on coming to check out Seattle this summer!
At SCC, we’ve created the ultimate culinary playground for our students. Imagine being surrounded by top-notch equipment, professional chefs, and a culinary curriculum that’s out of this world. It’s like a culinary amusement park, but instead of cotton candy, you’re whipping up gourmet dishes!
Our program is designed to give you the keys to the pro kitchen kingdom and let you unleash your culinary creativity. So, let’s forget the boring old classrooms, and let’s focus on the fun stuff- cooking up a storm and creating culinary masterpieces that’ll make your taste buds dance!
Our Residential Program
Life on a Top College Campus
CampusSEA cooking camps is all about exploring the greater Seattle area and having fun! Not only will we be cooking up a storm in the kitchen, but we’ll also be taking trips to the beach and visiting popular spots like Pike’s Fish Market, the Space Needle, and the Jimi Hendrix Museum.
Our students will be staying in a residence hall that is just a short train ride away from the kitchen. This means that after a day of cooking, we can hop on the metro and explore the city to our hearts’ content. After a day of adventure, we’ll head back to the dorms and enjoy all the amenities that college students have during the year. And, to top it off, we’ll be hosting fun evening activities like Talent Shows, Karaoke Nights, Movie Nights and more. Our cooking camps are not just about learning to cook, but also having an amazing experience! Our high school chef students get to try on college life!
After a day of cooking, students will be staying in premium residence halls, which are just a short train ride away from the kitchen. Our program is designed for high school chef students. This means that students will have access to the best of both worlds: an elite culinary education during the day and the opportunity to explore the city at night. The residence hall amenities are top-notch and include recreational facilities, comfortable living spaces, and access to a variety of evening activities like Talent Show, Karaoke Night, Movie Night and more.
