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. Our kitchen places an emphasis on healthful kid-friendly foods, a diverse international menu, vegetarian and vegan options, and – when possible – local specialty products. For the 2010 season we are doubling the size of our kitchen, increasing staffing, and adding a strong food education component to the camps’ curriculum.

Food safety education or certification and knife skills are a plus. Candidates MUST be enthusiastic about working in an environment with children and a diverse camp staff.

Our kitchen staff will work closely with the leadership team of the camps. We seek to be the best and most important camp kitchen in the country. Better camp food is a brand new front in the food revolution, and it is our top priority. Join us!

• Sous Chef – who will report to head chefs, help prep, cook and expedite daily meal service, help maintain kitchen inventory and equipment, as well as assisting with receiving food orders.
