WHERE IS CHEF CAMP?
Chef Camp will be held at YMCA Camp Miller in Sturgeon Lake, Minnesota. It's about 90 minutes North of the Twin Cities, straight up Route 35.
WHAT ARE THE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS?
We are offering private rooms as well as gender-segregated group bunks for the classic camp experience. The setting will be beautiful, but the accommodations will be rustic (think: sleeping bag and a pillow.) We'll send you a packing list as the date gets closer.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE?
Campers must be 21 years of age or older. No exceptions.
WHAT DOES MY TICKET COVER?
Your ticket to Chef Camp is all-inclusive and covers two nights tent camping, all classes and activities, and all food and beverages (including the "adult" ones.) Indoor lodging is available, at an extra charge.
How many classes will i get to take?
Each attendee will take three classes over the course of the weekend. Each class will include one chef instructor and between 10 and 15 students. There will be some student involvement in each class—not stem-to-stern participation in every case—but more than just simply sitting and listening.
I'm a total novice in the kitchen. is that a problem?
Not even remotely! Chef Camp is about having fun and learning in a wilderness environment, and our instructors and staff are excited to help you feel comfortable and pick up some new skills.
I'M A TOTAL PRO IN THE KITCHEN. IS THAT A PROBLEM?
Not even remotely! We're hoping to have campers with a wide range of knowledge who can share with one another and ping ideas back and forth off of our chef instructors and staff.
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY DIETARY RESTRICTION?
Ask us using the contact form below. Some of the meals at Chef Camp will be meat-centric, but vegetarians are welcome. At this time, we're not able to cook for people with serious gluten restrictions. We also can't provide a vegan menu this time around (although it's an intriguing idea for future events.)
What's your alcohol policy?
We'll be providing opportunities to (responsibly) enjoy beer and spirits throughout the weekend. We ask that campers do not bring additional alcohol with them, and refrain from consuming to excess.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL?
More than 30 days out from the event, Chef Camp will offer a full refund upon request. After 30 days before the event, we aren't able to offer a refund.
