A camp in Kanawha County is giving kids a chance to learn all about food from the pros.
Friday marked the final day of the Fast Track Camp at Shawnee Park in Institute,
On Friday, camp participants had the opportunity to learn about cooking, kitchen safety, safe food handling and basic nutrition. Students also took part in swimming, tennis and golf.
Local chefs and teachers also took time to demonstrate new cooking techniques that the campers could learn.
"Most of the feedback we get from the children is really positive. A lot of children have never worked out the way we work out in the program and have never been responsible for cooking their own meals," Camp co-founder Cierra Jones said.
The goal of the camp is to give students more confidence in their eating choices ans also as well as giving them the skills to make healthy food and snack choices.
