Skilled Trades Summer Camps are becoming more popular. These camps offer courses and hands-on experience in the Trades to allow students to explore rewarding post-high school careers. In a recent survey, 80% of high school students said they put a higher value on job training than a college degree and K-12 schools in Wisconsin are increasingly being incentivized to expose students to a full range of career options before leaving high school. This video features a Welding Merit Badge Clinic for Boy Scouts at Camp Rokilio in Kiel WI sponsored by UA Local 400.
