One Chick-fil-A Location in Hammond, Louisiana Has Caused Some Controversy This Summer.

This Chick-fil-A wanted to help parents out and they decided to host a few day-long summer camps for children from age five to twelve. This summer camp is supposed to help kids learn life skills and ultimately teach them how to work at Chick-fil-A. Do the kids get paid? Nope, however, parents do have to pay $35 per day. So basically, your kids get to roleplay, instead of playing house they get to play Chick-fil-A.

What Kind of Experience Does a Kid Get at a Chick-fil-A Camp?

If you're like me wondering what $35 a day gets a kid, know that a fancy nametag, a delicious meal, a snack, and a t-shirt. They're also charging parents $35 a day. You kid can learn customer service skills, dining room hosting, learning how to take a guest's order at the register, learning how to bag a guest's order, touring the kitchen, preparing chicken nuggets, serving ice cream in a cone or cup . . . and how to be a Chick-fil-A mascot.

Several People Have Taken to Social Media Claiming This Violates Child Labor Laws.

Parents have come out to defend the summer program claiming their kids are thrilled to get to "work" for a day at their favorite restaurant. We would work for free nuggets too right?

The Summer Camp Was Such a Hit Despite the Controversy They Have Added Even More Dates to the Summer Camp Calendar.

"We have added 3 sessions to choose from: July 22, 23, or 24 from 9:00am -12:00pm. The cost is $35 per child and it will include a kids meal, T-shirt, name tag, and snack."

The address to this Chick-fil-A in Hammond is 14150 Highway 190 W, Hammond, LA.
