Campers cooking together at the international culinary center

Do you know a teen who loves to cook, bake, experiment with ingredients and recipes, and never misses an episode of MasterChef Junior? Then the kitchens at the International Culinary Center (ICC) in NYC are the place for them to be!

Never cracked an egg before? Don’t worry! ICC’s week-long Cooking Camps and Pastry Camps for Teens are designed to build confidence and skills in the kitchen, no prior experience required. Open to students ages 13-18 years old, they’ll learn the fundamental kitchen skills and techniques every great chef must know. Taught by the same expert Chef-Instructors who teach ICC’s professional students, your budding young chefs will receive personal attention and guidance to complete every dish from start to finish in these hands-on classes.

Graduates of ICC’s Teen Camps gain a new sense of culinary & pastry confidence and the ability to make dishes like gnocchi, poached lobster, batch freeze custards for ice cream, decorate with piping and so much more! See what your teens will learn (and what you’ll get to taste!) this summer.
