Our kitchen is bright and open, we frequently interact with campers - they like to watch us cook and prep, we create a fun and pleasant work environment. We work long hours in one of the most beautiful places on earth with incredible people and the opportunity to hop in the lake in the middle of the day. And there are no late nights - we are usually out by 8 pm. This job is unlike any kitchen job you will ever have! Along with your institutions requirements, you will be expected to work a posted schedule, be on time, come dressed appropriately and prepared to work, read and write English and follow the directions of the Sous Chef and Head Chef. These positions report to the Head Chef. Each person will be expected to complete a final project focused on their specific area of study.
