2 Apr

As of May 5th, we are still seeking:

1 Sous Chef
2 Line Cooks

Location: Northeast Pennsylvania

Camp Ballibay and The Farm Arts Camp seek kitchen staff to help run a high-quality camp foodservice operation for the months of July and August. Our kitchen will serve a community of approximately 200 kids and adults.  The two camps share a beautiful campus in NE Pennsylvania, about 3 hours from Manhattan. After many years of working with a large foodservice company, and 46 years of total operation, the camps’ new administration has moved strongly towards scratch cooking with locally produced ingredients.
