Jersey City, NJ – Hudson County Community College announced that the College will offer a Summer Camp program for young women and men ages 14 to 17. The program, which will run from Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 27, will provide instruction in graphic and digital design and in menu development and creative cooking. Sessions will be held each day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the College’s Culinary Arts Institute/Conference Center at 161 Newkirk Street, two blocks from the Journal Square PATH Station in Jersey City.

In the first week of the HCCC Summer Camp program, participants will be afforded the opportunity to learn and develop valuable graphic and digital design skills by developing, designing and producing their own menus. The second and third weeks will include instruction on how to cook the items on those menus in the state-of-the-art kitchens of the College’s award-winning Culinary Arts Institute, the same kitchens used by Cake Boss Buddy Valastro for the cable TV show, “Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker,” and by the producers of the Progresso Soup “Ring-Ring” commercials.

The cost of the HCCC Summer Camp program, which has been developed through the College’s non-credit Community Education division, is $995.00 and includes lunch each day. Space is limited, and parents/guardians interested in obtaining more information and registering their children may do so by phoning (201) 360-4224 or emailing rfairchild@hccc.edu.
