TWU to offer in-person, virtual summer camps in 2022

Texas Woman’s University is set to host a diverse array of camps for children this summer ranging in topics from cooking, technology and STEM.

Culinology Camp

From June 4-10, kids ages 6-17 will have the opportunity to explore cooking and nutrition with the Texas Woman’s University Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. 

For students aged 6-11, they will learn the basics of cooking, such as sauteing and boiling, as well as learning to use a knife safely and when to ask for help from an adult, according to Dr. Kathleen Davis. The students will learn how to cook while making themselves a tasty lunch, and in the afternoon, they will participate in fun activities on TWU’s campus. The camp closes off with the children making their parents their very own culinary creations to showcase all that they have learned.

“We started this camp for the community, and we wanted kids who were interested in cooking and nutrition to be able to learn about that,” Davis said.

Children aged 12-17 will learn molecular gastronomy and advanced techniques from Professor James Adams, who worked for well-known foods brands Campbell Soup Company and Tyson Foods before deciding to teach at TWU.
