New York: Steve's Camp at Horizon Farms Seeks Summer Camp Chef

Steve's Camp at Horizon Farms is a new and innovative program designed to empower high school-aged youth from underserved communities in NYC to realize their potential through a unique camp experience. The goal of Steve's Camp at Horizons Farms is to help underserved New York City teens lead sustainable lives by promoting healthy lifestyles, improving campers' understanding of natural systems, and building self-knowledge and leadership skills. Participants attend camp free of charge, and learn about sustainability and leadership by working on a farm, cooking healthy food, and having fun in the outdoors. Steve's Camp is located on 100 acres in Livingston Manor, New York, about 100 miles outside of NYC. In addition to a farm that raises pigs, sheep, and chickens, the property also includes a large kitchen, dining hall, small garden, two bunkhouses, and an all-purpose building.

We are looking for someone with culinary/nutrition experience (either a chef or caterer) to run the kitchen at our summer camp from June 26th to August 24th. This is a temporary, full-time, residential position. Responsibilities will include:
• Ordering local food from nearby farms and stores;
• Keeping stock of food supplies;
• Maintaining a clean and safe kitchen;
• Providing some cooking instruction; and
• Planning and preparing three nutritious meals for approximately 40-50 people each day with the help of campers and staff.

A small percentage of our food will come from our gardens and chickens. The chef will also work with a Wellness Director and Farm Coordinator to help create a holistic, healthy environment for our campers.

Culinary experience a must. Ideally, we would like to hire some culinary experience and interest in teaching cooking to teens. All culinary staff must be passionate about cooking delicious and healthy food, enjoy working with youth, and be excited about living on farm for the summer! For more information please visit

This is a temporary, full-time, residential position that will run from June 26th to August 24th. You will have time off between each 12-day camp session.

We offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience. The position also includes organic, local, fresh meals each day and comfortable housing on a beautiful farm.
