Welding camp introduces teens to the trade

Fire up the torches. We met a group of teens who are spending part of their summer learning to weld.

A group of 12 to 15 year olds are learning how to weld as part of a summer camp being held at TRU.

There are lots of cool and unusual summer camps happening in Kamloops and the region right now. One of them that happened this past week was a free welding camp hosted by the Canadian Welding Association Foundation. The camps are being run across Canada. The goal is to get 12 to 15 year olds interested in a trade.  Daybreak's Jenifer Norwell stopped by to find out more.
