San Jose Summer Camps

Sprouts Camps are a Culinary Adventure!

Our summer camps are deliriously delicious! Our week-long camps are an intensive, culinary experience chock-full of hands-on cooking classes in outdoor kitchens and restaurants, farm harvests, market challenges, cook-offs, blindfolded palate play…and so much more! Sprouts campers cook alongside all types of chefs, including restaurants like Bon Voyage, In Situ, and Chop Bar. Kids ages 7-13 are welcome to join us in our culinary crusade!

We also offer the option of Junior Counselor (older kids ages 14-15) who are given special privileges, higher-skill level cooking assignments, more leadership-oriented tasts, and have more contact with the chefs. Limit of two Junior Counselors per camp week. 

With summer camps serving as a fundraiser for our Chef-In-Training program, your participation in camp helps empower young adults to train to become chefs and secure sustainable culinary jobs.
