We are very pleased to announce that our Culinary Camps will be held again this summer in Longueuil, Montreal, Quebec and Laval.

Summer camp with a community flavour

For 8 weeks every summer, La Tablée des Chefs welcomes groups of young people to its Cooking Schools in Montreal (Marché Jean-Talon), Longueuil (Curé Poirier St.), Quebec City (Grand Marché de Québec) and Laval (Cunard St.)!

Participants explore current food trends and learn about local food, as well as becoming more aware of food waste. The youth also have the chance to take part in our efforts to combat food insecurity, and do something tangible by getting involved in a Culinary Activity.

It's a unique experience of teamwork in the kitchen that also gives young people a chance to learn about a range of social issues!

How to register: Registration is online only through our website and will start on March 12th, 2024.

When: June 24th to August 16th, 2024
Where: Tablée des Chefs’ four Culinary Schools and at ITHQ!

  • Quebec City : Grand Marché de Québec
  • Montreal :  Marché Jean-Talon and ITHQ 
  • Longueuil: Curé Poirier St.
  • Laval: Cunard St.

Price: $550 per week


All profits generated by the Culinary Camps are reinvested in La Tablée des Chefs' programmes to further its mission to Feed and Educate.
 

 

On the menu this season

Once again this summer, we'll be taking our cooks on an exciting and tasty culinary adventure spread over 5 themed days:

  • Wear your sombrero, it's Cinco de Mayo!
  • An Italian feast...yes, I do!
  • A Lunar New Year with both feet firmly on the ground!
  • A glamping New Year's Eve!
  • The appetizers are ready, the party can begin!  

The mood will be one of fun and celebration, with a major Mexican feast, Italian wedding, Chinese New Year and a Camper's Christmas in the spotlight! To close off their gourmet week, our cooks will be enjoying a cocktail party, preparing and tasting a variety of festive appetizers.
Once again, we're privileged to have renowned and generous chefs on hand to share their recipes and culinary secrets with the youths.

Age requirements 

La Tablée des Chefs welcomes youths from ages 11 to 15. For safety and insurance reasons, we cannot accept children under 11 years of age. Children registered must be at least 11 years old on the first day of camp.


Language of instruction 

Our Culinary Camps run in French, as well as the documents given to the youth. To be able to take part, your child must therefore be sufficiently at ease with the French language in order to understand the instructions relating to safety and activities.


Hours 

Each camp week runs for five days, from Monday to Friday. Activities start at 8.30am and finish at 4pm. Every day, your child will cook his or her own snacks and lunch... a great opportunity for parents to take a break from preparing packed lunches!

We welcome children from 8am. At the end of the day, children can leave at 4pm or be registered for daycare. The latter is offered from 8am to 8:30am and from 4pm to 5pm, free of charge. Children with permission to leave the camp on their own may do so as of 4pm.
 

Absence or lateness 

In the event of absence or delay, please call 450-748-1638, ext. 304, and give us your name, the child's name, the day he or she will be absent and the location of the camp where they are registered (Longueuil, Montreal, Quebec or Laval).


Menu, allergies and diets 

Our Culinary Schools cannot provide an environment free of allergens and/or traces of allergens. The weekly menu cannot be changed to accommodate allergies, special diets (vegetarian, gluten-free, keto, etc.) or religious beliefs (kosher, halal, etc.). 

Please note that the camp menu is the same for all 8 weeks.


Medical conditions and medication 

If your child has special needs, please contact us before registering. La Tablée des Chefs cannot assume any assistance or responsibility for the administration and management of medication during the Culinary Camps. However, in case of emergency, we will administer epinephrine.


Before camp starts

The week before your child starts camp, you will receive an email containing information to help prepare them.

 

We look forward to welcoming, sharing flavours, recipes and tips with your young cook!
