EATS Summer Camps
Every summer EATS offers camps for students. The topics explored at EATS camps range widely from learning new kitchen skills and how to combine flavors to planting a garden and learning how to take care of plants as they grow into nutritious food.

Field trips for this camp will be dependent on COVID-19.
