If your teenage dream is to work in a professional kitchen—or if you just love the idea of developing your cooking techniques—the time has arrived. This intense, inspiring cooking camp for teen students 13-18 years old builds the essential skills needed to conquer the kitchen—even if you’ve never boiled an egg!

This cooking class is taught by the same instructors who train our adult career students and requires no prior experience. Each day is a true hands-on experience, beginning with your first lesson when you learn to chop vegetables like a professional.


Learn to perfect the art of cooking from an experienced chef—one of the same instructors who trains adults in our professional kitchens at our Soho, NYC, campus. Each student receives personal attention and guidance from our knowledgeable chef-instructors during the camp’s hands-on cooking classes. Graduates of ICC’s teen cooking camp leave with a new sense of culinary confidence and the ability to make dishes like gnocchi, paper-thin crêpes, poached lobster and more!
