"Meat with a Twist" features 10 cocktails paired with 10 chef selections highlighting local, sustainably grown meat, such as duck, lamb, chicken, pork, beef, bison and ostrich.

Thinking about Food

It’s hard to believe that our final week of camp has arrived! Last Thursday, the kids took part in a special lesson on nutrition, during which they learned how to identify and distinguish between simple and complex carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. The students had fun matching cardboard cutouts of certain items, like pizza and eggs, to each of these categories.
