The Culinary Arts Camp, which takes place during July, offers three weeks of culinary exploration and is a great opportunity for local students to learn from highly trained chefs while getting hands-on training. Students will learn the culinary skills to succeed in a kitchen along with basic knife skills, kitchen safety and sanitation. During the three-week program, students will experience creativity, taste and fun while learning to prepare omelets, chicken soup, braised chicken, cheesecake, meatballs, jambalaya and more. Upon course completion students will receive their Food Handlers Certification and a Certificate of Completion that is transferrable for three credit hours toward Culinary 101 at TCL. The camp is made possible by a partnership between Hampton Friends of the Arts and the Hampton County School District.

The free summer camp program will take place at the Culinary Institute of the South at Technical College of the Lowcountry, located at 1 Venture Drive in Bluffton. Free transportation to the program from the Stanley Arts Center, as well as meals, will be provided. The program will conclude with a student- catered graduation party and ceremony with hors d’oeuvres for family members on the last day.  The dates and times of the program are as follows:

  • July 5-8, 8am – 4pm
  • July 11-15, 8am – 3pm
  • July 25-28, 8am – 3pm
