Young Chefs Academy of New City, a cooking school for kids, launches Camp Can-I-Cook, a series of themed mini-camps.

Through Camp Can-I-Cook, Young Chefs Academy of New City provides three- to four-day hands-on camps for children ages 6 and older.

The mini camps are held from 9am-12pm on select dates between June 26 and Aug. 17 at the Young Chefs Academy location in New City.

“Young Chefs Academy is a place where your child can go off to camp and come home with gained culinary skills, new friendships, original Young Chefs Academy recipes, and memories to utilize and last a lifetime,” says Tina Latina, New City location owner. The mini-camps are also offered during select school holidays.

The staff of Young Chefs Academy is friendly and engaging but also serious about their work. They pride themselves in teaching children the rules of cooking and new recipes while also striving to make it a fun and memorable experience for all.
