New York State: Steve’s Camp at Horizon Farms seeks a Culinary Expert

25 Apr

Steve’s Camp is a new and innovative program designed to empower high school youth from under-served communities in NYC to realize their potential through a unique camp experience.  The participants learn about sustainability and leadership by working on the farm, cooking healthy food, and having fun in the outdoors.  Steve’s Camp is located on 100 acres in Livingston Manor, New York, about 100 miles outside of NYC.  In addition to a farm that raises pigs, sheep, and chickens, the property also includes a large kitchen, dining hall, small garden, two bunkhouses, an all-purpose building, and a swimming pond.

We are looking for someone with culinary experience (either a chef or caterer) to run the kitchen.  This includes ordering local food from nearby farms and stores, keeping stock of food supplies, ensuring a clean and safe kitchen, and helping to plan and prepare nutritious meals for approximately 40-50 people each day with the help of campers and staff.  We hope to find someone who is passionate about cooking delicious and healthy food, enjoys working with youth, and is excited about living on farm for the summer!
Camp runs from June 29th until August 23rd.  Room and board will be provided in a brand-new bunkhouse, as well as transportation to and from camp (or reimbursement for gas).  

If you are interested in this position, please send a resume, cover letter, and any questions you have to Jenny Ninyo, Assistant Director/Director of Food Education at
