Learning Labs and Camps

A five-day camp for Aboriginal students aged 12-15 to explore welding as a career option. Students spend the week learning about safety, welding processes and techniques. They also create a number of projects they can take home. The week ends with a celebration of student achievement with family members. The Mind Over Metal camp is offered free of charge to Aboriginal students thanks to support from the Canadian Welding Association Foundation, CAREERS: The Next Generation, Grande Prairie Regional College, Lethbridge College and Northern Lakes College.
