CULINARY CREATIONS

Campers feel right at home in our professional kitchen creating delectable dishes at their own cooking stations. Fully equipped with range, microwave, mixer, blender, pots, pans, and cooking utensils, our facility has everything you would find in a proper chef’s kitchen. We have created an environment where campers learn by using hands-on cooking techniques.

SUMMER CAMP ADVENTURES

Camp CHOP is much more than a cooking camp! Campers can participate in outdoor adventures such as the giant swing, fish’n float, water obstacles, go-karts; evening programs like fort building, moon landings, spa night, ice creams socials, techno dance parties; and elective activities including paintball, scavenger races, 3D printing, drone flying, building water rovers, LARPing, and more!

Our unique activities are created to be challenging, exhilarating, and unforgettable. At Camp CHOP, campers make lifelong friends and summer memories they will never forget.

HEAR FROM OUR

Happy Campers & Parents

Swan. We cannot thank you all enough. This camp was a huge milestone for our son since it was his first sleep away camp. We were impressed from the minute we arrived. The staff was friendly and everything was so well organized. It was relaxed and check-in was a breeze. Throughout the week the communication from you all and Tucker was incredible. When we picked him up, again, so friendly and well-organized! The lead chef obviously got to know Tucker and was so very kind in his words and brags about how well Tuck did during the week. Tuck was so good to go. He cannot wait to come back next summer and the chef had mentioned an advanced course you may be offering! We, as parents, are so appreciate of your emails, photos, the campanion app and phone calls. You guys were fantastic! Take care,
Melissa and Chris Bugaj
