Free carpentry camps for teenagers are underway and students are in the middle of sawing, hammering and assembling products in the wood shops of our Parkland and North Hill campuses.

The free carpentry camps, funded by Apprenticeship Manitoba, started last week in Dauphin, and Tuesday in Brandon. They each run for nine days and will teach the teens some of the basics of woodworking, including safety, planning and how to properly use both hand and power tools.
