Mind over Metal Camp

North Peace Secondary School is hosting the CWB Welding Foundation Mind over Metal Camp from July 2nd to July 6th.
The CWB Welding Foundation Mind over Metal Camps are an initiative that began with a two week pilot camp in 2014.  This pilot camp was so successful that in 2015 the Foundation hosted 15 camps across Canada, 35 in 2016, and it is expected that this number will exceed 50 in 2018.
Targeted at youth ages 12-15, Mind over Metal camps are changing the perceptions of youth and their parents about welding and careers in welding. Hands on learning at these camps is building confidence and self-esteem and giving many youth a reason for continuing on to secondary and post-secondary education. Welding has captured their attention and is giving them a focus for their future.
Industry partnerships are growing as a result of these camps and the CWB Foundation invites industry to contact them for more information on this successful initiative.
