What Campers and Parents are Saying about ASU Camp CRAVE

"My grandchildren were skeptical of this choice for camp at first. Now they look forward to each day and say it's their best camp ever! We have been treated to arugula basil pesto, fruit smoothies, and lessons on proper cutting with a knife!" ~ Sandra

"On the daily drive home from camp, my daughter was excited to share all the new things she learned with her newly-made friends at Camp CRAVE. Not only did my daughter have great fun, she learned lifelong skills in cooking, nutrition, fitness, and wellness. She has been sharing her new found knowledge and experiences with us and is excited to attend Camp CRAVE again next summer!" ~ Camp parent

"I like Camp CRAVE cooking classes because all of the counselors are very nice. I also liked Camp CRAVE because I learned a lot about being healthy and eating healthy. I hope I can attend the camp again." ~ Camp CRAVE '13 camper
