Growing Chefs! Ontario: Advanced Culinary Camp

Advanced Culinary Camp

Registration for Advanced Culinary Camp 2023 is now FULL!

Posted on: Feb 15, 2023

Advanced Culinary Camp is now FULL! If you would like to be added to a waitlist, please contact our Education Projects Manager, Christy at christy@​growingchefsontario.​ca

The Growing Chefs! Ontario Advanced Culinary Camp is a 4 day culinary boot camp that will give participants an opportunity to elevate their food skills, technique and confidence in the kitchen. Participants will spend the entire time cooking with the Growing Chefs! Culinary team, working through several themed recipes each day – with a break for a delicious lunch made by participants.

This gives our chef team the opportunity to work closely with participants to deliver personalized feedback while the young Chefs grow their skills and confidence in the kitchen. It also allows participants to directly interact with our professional Chefs so they can ask questions and pick their brains about all things food related.

Enrolment in the Advanced Culinary Camp requires previous cooking experience which may include: attending Know Your Roots Camp in previous years, participation in Growing Chefs! Ontario Programming, or equivalent cooking skills and experience at home.

Date: Aug 15 – 18


Ages:1316 (Must be 13 years old within the calendar year)

Location: Advanced Culinary Camp will be hosted at our new location, The Grove at The Western Fair District, located at 900 King St.

Time: 9:00am‑1:00pm (drop off is 8:45am‑9:00am, pickup is 1:00 – 1:15pm)

$325 Growing Chefs! Ontario is committed to providing low-cost food education experiences for children and youth. Lunch is included. If cost is a barrier to registration, please contact christy@​growingchefsontario.​ca to explore subsidy options.

Masking and Vaccination:
Growing Chefs! continues to work closely with Public Health as we continue to transition away from COVID-19 related health and safety protocols for our programming and events. We strongly recommend vaccinations and masking as tools to minimize the spread of COVID-19, but will not be continuing to require masks be worn in our facilities.

Food Allergies:
If food allergies are a concern, rest assured that our team is highly experienced in managing dietary restrictions. Do not let a dietary concern prevent your child from participating in our programming. Get in contact with christy@​growingchefsontario.​ca and we’ll do our best to make appropriate accommodations.

Cancellations: Once full payment is received and registration is confirmed, any cancellation must be directly communicated to us as early as possible. Cancellations made during camp or within one week before the start of camp are ineligible for refund.
