Mind over Metal Welding Camp for Youth

Northern Lakes College in partnership with the Canadian Welding Association Foundation and Shell will be hosting a Mind over Metal Welding Camp in High Prairie. This is one week camp for youth between the ages of 12 to 15 to introduce them to welding. The camp will run from Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 3.30 pm. During the week the students will hear from guest speakers, learn about safety procedures in welding, proper use of hand and power tools and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) basics which will help build their confidence and self-esteem in welding.

Students will create projects that they can bring home. The camp is limited between the ages of 12 and 15. Thanks to the partners there is no cost to attend this camp. The camp is limited to 16 youth with selection on first qualified, first served basis. Snacks and lunch are provided daily.
