Love Food? Then Dig Into New York

A Summer. A City. A Camp Like No Other.

Join other teens for an amazing sleepaway camp experience that celebrates creativity, social responsibility and Jewish values.

If you're a foodie, then New York is your ultimate laboratory. Top chefs are treated like rock stars in the Big Apple. At Passport NYC, participants in our Culinary Arts specialty are totally immersed in New York's colorful food scene—doing, learning and being part of the big city's culinary mix.

Passport NYC will get you inside New York's best kitchens, letting you cook with master chefs while you sample the ethnic rainbow of flavors that make New York a food mecca.

You'll also connect food with social and environmental responsibility. Like meeting farmers and experiencing organic and local fare first hand with GrowNYC—New York's greenmarkets. Or, cooking at a local soup kitchen or supplying meals to people who are in need.

Satisfy a passion for good food and an interest in doing good—with Passport NYC's Culinary Arts specialty.

From Marc Murphy (executive chef, Landmarc restaurant) to Michael Anthony (executive chef, Gramercy Tavern) and the incredible staff of GrowNYC's Greenmarket, you will learn alongside the people who make New York City the place where the most delicious tastes, from sweet to savory, begin.

Session I: Sun, Jun 30-Sun, Jul 21, 2013
Session II: Sun, Jul 28-Sun, Aug 18, 2013
