Future chefs and fashion designers can get a taste of their industry at a summer camp at Texas Tech University.

The College of Human Sciences is holding a chef camp and a fashion camp from June 22-26. Both camps are open to children ages 13 to 16 years old, who will live on campus for the week. The fashion camp also has a different camp available for children ages 8-12.

The Hospitality and Retail Management program is putting on the chef camp with the purpose of teaching teenagers everything from plating and presentation to learning how to make the best dishes. At the end of the camp, the campers will present their culinary chops at a cooking competition and reception for their families.
