TWU to host inaugural Summer Nutrition Culinary Camp

3/6/15

DENTON— Food Science lab experiments and other creative culinary activities for children ages 9 to 14 are on the menu as the Texas Woman’s University Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences hosts its inaugural Summer Nutrition Culinary Camp June 22-26 on the university’s Denton campus.

“We wanted to create a camp where kids could learn how to incorporate nutrition principles into making culinary delights,” said camp coordinator Angie Griffin, a visiting assistant clinical professor at TWU. “Food is a universal language that brings families and friends together.”

Registration for the camp currently is under way. Early bird registration (before April 30) is $395. Regular registration is $450 and ends June 5. For more information or to register, visit www.twu.edu/nutrition-food-sciences and click on the “Summer Nutrition Culinary Camp” link.

The camp is open to boys and girls. Classes will take place in TWU’s recently remodeled Food Prep Lab. Campers will participate in food science lab experiments, culinary nutrition cooking, exercise, healthy snacks and creative activities. The week will end with campers leading a culinary presentation for their parents.

Campers will receive a spatula, recipe book, apron and a backpack.
