The Pontiac cooking program has emerged as one of the most
enjoyable activities at camp. It is housed in an exceptionally
beautiful and functional state of the art kitchen. It is managed
by Karen Etra, our own in house owner/chef with three chef
assistants. Each and every camper has the opportunity to learn
how to prepare, cook and ultimately enjoy a variety of culinary
delights ranging from appetizers, desserts to full meals including
Italian, Mexican, Asian and Shabbat dinners.

Older campers enjoy longer sessions in Karen's Kitchen and prepare an
evening meal together enjoyed as a group out on the deck.

At the more advanced level we encourage our campers to use their culinary
flare and create their own signature dish. During Color War those skills are
pitted against each other in our annual Chopped Challenge.
