After many years of working with a large foodservice company, and 46 years of total operation, the camps’ new administration has moved strongly towards scratch cooking with locally produced ingredients. Our kitchen places an emphasis on healthful kid-friendly foods, a diverse international menu, vegetarian and vegan options, and – when possible – local specialty products. For the 2011 season we are doubling the size of our kitchen, increasing staffing, and adding a strong food education component to the camps’ curriculum.

Part and full time on-site work begins in June, in the camp’s foodservice operation and expanded food education program.

Food safety education or certification and knife skills are a plus. Candidates MUST be enthusiastic about working in an environment with children and a diverse camp staff.

• Sous Chef – report to head chefs; prep, cook and expedite daily meal service; maintain kitchen inventory and equipment; and receive food orders.

• Line Cooks – report to head and sous chefs; daily food prep and cooking.
