The Bread Bakers Guild of America (BBGA) invites baking professionals at any and every stage in their professional journey, as well as baking enthusiasts of all stripes, to its upcoming event, Camp Bread.

Taking place March 5-7 at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, Camp Bread will feature hands-on baking classes on lamination, naturally-leavened breads, steamed breads, pizza, cookies, packaged pastries, sweet and savory fillings and more.

Additionally, the event includes:

  • Seminars and workshops on the business of baking, employee management and growth, marketing, bakery design and more
  • A sponsor showcase where attendees can meet and talk with ingredient and equipment suppliers and other industry affiliates 
  • Book signings with favorite baker-authors
  • An opportunity to connect and network with peers at the camp and at the Guildhall Gathering (separate ticket required) 
  • A comprehensive opportunity for skill development, professional growth and inspiration for bakery owners, bench bakers and anyone interested in growing a career or a business in baking

Thanks to the support of the event's sponsors, which include Central Milling, Lesaffre and King Arthur Baking Company, the BBGA is able to offer tickets at a more affordable rate compared to other events of similar scale and duration. The first ticket costs $900, and additional tickets are at a 25 percent discount at $675.   

There is also a “Buy One, Give One” (BOGO) ticket option priced at $1575. By choosing the BOGO ticket, attendees not only secure a spot at Camp but also enable someone who might otherwise be unable to afford it to join. The investment in a BOGO ticket contributes to BBGA’s general scholarship fund for Camp, ensuring that more individuals can experience this incredible opportunity. Plus, for your generosity, $675 of the ticket price is tax-deductible.

Interested individuals can sign up for Bread Camp online. More information on the event, including a full schedule of classes, can be found at BBGA’s website.
