2024 registration: coming soon
We’ll be back shortly with the registration dates and program for the Aliment’Terre 2024 culinary camps.
This will be an exceptional year, as we celebrate our tenth anniversary!
Aliment’terre culinary camps
INAF’s Aliment’terre culinary camps are the only day camps offered by an institution of higher education to take such a comprehensive approach to cooking, food and the agri-food sector. A true adventure around the plate, the nutritional, cultural, environmental and sustainable food dimensions are all addressed thanks to the expertise of the members of our institute.
Accompanied by an experienced chef, young apprentice chefs are treated to a variety of activities, from vegetable gardening to cooking to a mini food processing plant. They also take advantage of the workshops to prepare their own lunches and snacks.
Our programming is renewed every year to enhance our range of activities and give youngsters a different experience every year.
Our culinary camps offer thoughtful programming for two age groups of young people with a passion for cooking.
Aliment’terre group – 10 to 12 years old
Young Foodies group – 13 to 15 years old
Registrations for Aliment’terre culinary camps are flying off the shelves. Be the first to know about our activities and when registration opens.

A WEEK AT CAMP
A five-day program featuring a host of workshops and fun activities for a complete overview, from earth to plate. The week ends with an invitation to parents to a banquet prepared by the youngsters and accompanied by an experienced chef – a source of great pride for our apprentice-chefs.
Our team is made up of our Institute’s professionals from the fields of agronomy, nutrition and food science. Facilitators are Université Laval bachelor’s students in nutrition, with an interest in knowledge transfer and nutrition education.
A 2024 PARTNER
The high quality of our activities and the diversity of recipes and products showcased at our culinary camps would not be possible without the participation of government and private institutions, as well as Quebec companies in the agri-food sector.
Interested in becoming a partner and helping our young apprentice chefs enrich their knowledge? Partnerships can take the form of financial donations, foodstuffs or services.
