Sandwich on a stick is a favourite every year.

Special to The Record

Young Chefs are getting active this summer while learning the importance of good nutrition, with the Young Chefs summer camps, sponsored by Thrifty Foods and co-ordinated by Active Comox Valley.

This year’s camps are being offered in Black Creek from July 22 – 25 and in Cumberland from July 28 – Aug.  1, at no charge. Campers ages 10 to 12 years will learn hands-on educational, nutritional snack preparation and participate in fun games and activities. The week finishes at the Comox Valley Aquatic Centre for a day of swimming, snacks and a fun tour of the new Thrifty Foods store.

Subsidized program

The Young Chefs camp is offered every year at various locations throughout the Comox Valley.

To ensure this program is accessible to all families, Thrifty Foods subsidizes this program, which makes it very popular. Campers will learn about foods they have never heard of before, like the dragon fruit, and discover new ways to enjoy their favourite ones.

In the past, one of the favourite meals the participants prepared was the fruit pizza and sandwich on a stick.

Healthy, fun and active

Young Chefs is about making healthy food choices and learning how to make cooking fun, but it is also about keeping  the participants active – exactly what this camp is all about.

If you have a child who is 10–12 years of age who loves to have fun, then this is the camp for them.

To register  call the Black Creek Community Centre at 250-337-5190 or the Cumberland Recreation Centre at 250-336-2231.
