About Cooking Camps

Duck Trails is excited to announce our newest camp program for 2019—Cooking Camp. Based out of the University of Oregon’s newest housing facility, Kalapuya-Illihi, campers will have the opportunity to learn new culinary techniques, kitchen safety protocols, and experience a wide variety of foods. The camp will include demonstration and instruction from counselors as well as hands-on learning to help campers feel comfortable and safe in the kitchen. In the afternoons, campers will participate in camp games and have the opportunity to swim.
