This camp will provide a full week of teaching youth, ages 10 to 15, how to incorporate healthy nutrition into their diets and nutrition from farm to fork with recommendations from a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Campers will create a healthful lunch and snack each day and will end each day with a wellness activity including volleyball, basketball, yoga, and indoor swimming. Each camper will receive a cutting board and water bottle.
SNCC Around the World in Five Days: July 18-22, Monday-Friday 9a-1p, $225. Campers, ages 10 to 15, will be introduced to different food cultures and nutrition practices around the world and prepare a variety of foods from those cultures. They will make a snack related to that culture to take home to share with family. Each camper will receive a cutting board and a take-home snack.
Students who want to expand their culinary talents and pursue higher salaries in the growing culinary arts and food industries should check out the state’s first Culinology® program in culinary science and food service management this fall at Texas Woman’s University (TWU).
