NCCC’s Culinary Camp will take place at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute (NFCI) for students who are ages 8 to 17-years-old. Culinary professionals will teach campers how to make breakfast and lunch recipes as well as food safety, healthful living, and kitchen operations. The camp takes place June 28 – August 6, but due to its popularity, it has already sold out. Look for more information during spring 2022 regarding culinary camps for next summer.
