Top Chef

Day Camp

Our phenomenal specialty day camps combine the traditional fun of YMCA day camps with the more specialized skills and learning of our outside specialty camp providers or YMCA experts.

Each specialty day camp has a wide range of subjects to campers to enjoy — from sports-related day camps concentrating on skills and techniques, to creative camps like ceramics that focus on expanding artistic skills and confidence.

More Information

We have revamped one of our longest running and most successful camps and invite you to try it out. Top Chef teaches campers how to make a variety of different foods using various cooking methods. Children will learn how to perform cooking methods such as proper cutting, boiling, and pan frying in a safe environment and under the watchful eyes of some of our most experienced staff. Your camper will learn how to make dishes from a variety of different cultures, including but not limited to: Latin American, Asian, American, Italian, Indian and more (regional foods presented in camp depend on our teacher as each has different regional specialties and themes).

Campers will be encouraged to try new foods while they also learn about nutritional values and how to read food labels. Although we check medical forms for any food sensitivities, please alert staff of anything food related that we need to be aware of.
