NYC Summer Camps
This Summer! Cook Alongside Real Chefs!
We couldn’t be more excited! We’re heading to NYC this summer so that even more youth can get the opportunity to cook, hands-on, with some of the world’s most talented chefs!
Based in Manhattan, our week-long camps are an intensive culinary experience chock-full of hands-on cooking classes in restaurants, farm harvests, camper cook-offs, blindfolded palate play…and so much more! Sprouts’ youth cooks will work alongside guest chefs from some of the hottest restaurants in the NYC area such as Blue Ribbon, Tacuba, Luke’s Lobster, Union Square Cafe and more! You’d be crazy not to join in our culinary frenzy this summer – it’s gonna be ridiculously delicious! Plus, if you sign up with a buddy, we will offer your $70 off of each of your camp fees!
Camps run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. the last two weeks of July! Each week is unique! Throughout the day, Sprouts youth chefs visit different restaurants, markets, farms, and venues all over New York City. All drop offs and pick-ups will take place in Manhattan. A typical day includes cooking with chefs and local cooks as we reinforce knife and safety skills through hands-on cooking, whipping up lunch, and tasting our creations throughout the day. We will learn how to taste and smell our way through improvisational cooking as well as learning favorite recipes and dishes from our culinary friends. We will meet with farmers and artisans, and forge relationships with local chefs and purveyors!
Week 1, July 17th – 21st, 11-5 p.m.
*All drop-off and pick-ups are in Manhattan

Counselors and Campers
Children 7-12 are welcome to apply as a camper. Each week-long camp session will have 10-15 campers with a counselor ratio of 3:1. Classes are led by guest chefs, and assisted by food and nutrition-loving counselors.
Junior Counselor Campers
Teens ages 13-15 are encouraged to apply for our Junior Counselor (JC) positions. JC registration and payment is the same as campers. Up to two junior counselors are selected for each session to help serve as a liaison between the chef and the campers, and help with the more difficult techniques.
Camp Fee: $590
This includes snacks throughout the day, lunch, and ingredients. The camp fee does not include bus or subway tickets to and from restaurants. It also does not include market goodies we may buy! A significant portion of this camp fee goes directly to financial-based scholarships offered during camps and throughout the year, and goes to subsidize our Chef-in-Training program for disadvantaged youth. Each camp week is unique, so feel free to sign up for as many sessions as you would like!
*60% of your camp tuition is tax-deductible
*Thank you! Your camp fee allows us to off scholarships for those in need
*As always, scholarships are available for those in need!
