What is The Nate Santelli ProStart Summer Camp?
The Nate Santelli ProStart Summer Camp was created in 2016 as a resourceful and educational experience for high school Michigan ProStart students. ProStart students spend four days at an Up North summer camp facility to learn from industry leaders in culinary, restaurant management, table top design and much more while developing team building skills. The ProStart Summer Camp was named in honor of the late Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association Education and Grant Manager, Nate Santelli, in 2017 to honor his memory and dedication to the Michigan ProStart Program.
