Mind Over Metal Free Summer Welding Camp

Williams Lake only

This free camp introduces young people aged 12 to 16 to the welding trade.

Start by learning about welding safety, gas metal arc welding, introductory welding symbols and the impact welding has on their everyday lives. Projects include Bear, Turtle and Tree — to name a few.

Cultural awareness is an important element of the camps, with Elders and community members from local bands present throughout the week to provide cultural context around what you learn.

Mind Over Metal was developed by the CWB Welding Foundation, is delivered by Thompson Rivers University, and is funded by British Columbia Energy Regulator.
