Forestry Trades Camp
A collaboration between Aspen View Public Schools and High Prairie School Division, Forestry Trades Camp offers hands-on experiences in forestry trades to Grade 10 students from both school divisions.
There are two components to the program:
Forestry Mill Visits take place in April 2018. Participating students will tour forestry mills in the region, meet First Nations and Metis journeyman and chat with them about their jobs.
Up to 30 students who successfully participate in the Forestry Mill visits will be selected to participate in a three-day Forestry Trades Camp in May 2018 at Camp Wright on Narrow Lake, Athabasca County. Participants will have hands-on ‘try a trade’ opportunities and other outdoor learning experiences.
