We offer Zoom Q+A for all enrolled students, and we got this note:

“Actually, thank YOU!  That parent info/Q&A was the first time in two years that I have left a “school meeting” feeling more positively about a program.  Unlike almost everyone with whom I have been dealing for the past too long (as both parent of five teens and professional educator) has seemed disorganized, inarticulate, overly keen to appease and accommodate (I mean, if we’re not willing to provide boundaries for the kids, how will they ever learn them?) and– in a word– worrisome! In any event, my thanks to you and your colleagues for the bright spot of hope.  Quinn and I are both super excited for the time he is going to spend with you, and I am already hoping that future summers might include even more of it!   VERY best wishes”– Elysabeth (2021 Parent)

“This camp has been and always will be one of the best things I do during the summer. It is always something I look forward to and is something that I enjoy doing due to the cooking being more like it would be in a working kitchen then compared to my kitchen at my home. It allows me to grow in my knowledge and gives me the some of the tools and knowledge that I will need to go into the field of cooking. I would only miss the camp for a medical emergency or a family event, I’m not even joking, I love this camp.”– William, 16, from Long Island (2019)

“I love the fact that it felt like a real cooking camp rather than a camp that says “Today we are going to make chocolate chip cookies”. There were real skills being taught and learned.” – Antoinnea, Bahamas, 17 (2018)

“Thank you so much for Alex’s wonderful week at CampusNYC! He did not stop talking about the great experience he had, and would definitely love to return next year.  He especially enjoyed getting to know you and told me about all the wonderful talks you two had. I knew this culinary camp program would be a great fit for him and I am pleasantly surprised at just how much he got out of it. He enjoyed working with the Chefs very much and made friends with many of the other campers. He is looking forward to coming back next year and said he would love to attend a two week session.” – Take care, Nadia (2017 Parent)

Culinary camp happiness!

“I liked when we went to Broadway because we all went back to the dorms to get all dressed up.” – Audrey, Summer 2018 student

“My favorite thing about evening events was visiting Chinatown and Little Italy because we get to see different ethnic cuisines and diversity.” – Olivia, Summer 2018 student

“My favorite thing was… everything!  I think it is a combination of the people, the chefs and the counselors.” – Nicole, Summer 2017 student

Dear campusNYC,  I REALLY loved camp and I would totally recommend for anyone who enjoys cooking and exploring cities to definitely go here!  The counselors were awesome and my favorite part was all the guests who came in to teach us about the different aspects of cooking, like the photographer and butcher.  The dorms were brand new and a great living space for two weeks…even though we didn’t spend much time there because we were too busy exploring New York City and all its amazing go to shops and tourist locations.  – Madison, 2016 student

Our locations campusNYC and campusATX and campusLA are prime. Our culinary camp kitchens are AMAZING. And our staff is super well-trained and ready to take each student exactly as they are and take them as far as they can go. This is the place to build lifetime culinary skills and a whole new set of friends and memories..
