If your teenage dream is to work in a professional kitchen, or you just love the idea of developing your cooking skills, attend our cooking camp for teens. This intense, inspiring class for students between 13-18 years old gives budding chefs the essential building blocks to conquer the kitchen.

This course requires zero experience. Even if you’ve never boiled an egg, this technique-based cooking camp for teens will teach you the skills to create impressive meals at home and provide the basis for a lifetime of learning and experimentation in the kitchen. You’ll find each session to be a true hands-on experience, beginning with your first day of class when you learn to chop vegetables like a pro.


Spend five weekday sessions learning the art of cooking from an experienced chef—one of the same instructors who train adults in our professional kitchens at our Campbell, CA, school. Each student receives personal attention and guidance, thanks to our smaller class size. After the week-long course is completed, ICC teen graduates leave with a new sense of culinary confidence, and the ability to make such dishes as gnocchi (by hand), paper-thin crêpes, poached lobster and more.
