Pali Adventures Culinary Camp


Pali Adventures provides a unique overnight summer camp experience for kids ages 8-16 in Running Springs, CA (outside of Los Angeles).  Campers choose from one of 22 specialties and over 70 electives to design a personalized adventure.  Pali is different from other specialty camps because their specialties are so accessible. The programs are encouraging and supportive of all ability levels. They love to see campers explore activities they have only dreamed about – with no pressure to already be good at it. Meeting each individual where they are, Pali tailors an experience to each camper. Campers follow their dreams, try incredible new things, and gain lifelong friends in a safe and supportive environment.

Camp takes place every week starting June 11th through August 12th. Weeks of camp run Sunday through Saturday, and campers stay a minimum of one week up to the full nine weeks of summer.

About the Culinary Camp:

Let the cooking extravaganza begin! Create delicious food inspired by cuisine from around the world. Culinary campers have an absolute blast learning to cook. They gain the confidence to take their new skills and knowledge home to cook for their families and friends.

Here’s a taste of what our culinary campers will accomplish during their week:

  • Create appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts
  • Learn to use a wide variety of ingredients
  • Cook according to daily themes
  • Friday cooking challenge: “Iron Chef” style
  • Learn basic kitchen safety

Culinary Instructors have three full weeks of recipes planned, so campers who stay for multiple weeks will continue to learn new things. After four fun-filled days of cooking, campers have the opportunity to put their new culinary skills to the test in a cooking competition — “Iron Chef” style. Using a set of required ingredients, campers cook winning dishes to dazzle a panel of “celebrity” judges (usually counselors from other specialties). What a fun and delicious end to the week
