TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -  A new summer camp is giving those interested in the trades an opportunity to explore career opportunities.

The Tippecanoe Building Trades' new camp is offering a hands on look into the trades.

"If you're looking to work with your hands and be a skilled individual, the time is now,” said Tippecanoe Building Trades President Stephen Snyder.

According to Snyder, it will give students a look at different trades over several weeks.

"They can get a taste of the trades as far as what it takes to be an electrician, what it takes to be a pipefitter, what it takes to be a carpenter,” said Snyder.

This is the first time the group has hosted a camp offering ten building trades.

Tuesday was the first day of camp. Students were able to practice with electrical equipment and learned how to properly bend metal conduits.

The camp will run every Tuesday through July 2nd.

IBEW's Larry Spencer says the camp can help students find a trade they'll be passionate about.

"They don’t have to have really an area in the construction industry in which they want to actually focus on. We're going to open it up to all different type of building trades,” said Spencer.

With trade jobs in demand, Snyder said he hopes the camp will help bring the next generation of tradesmen.

"We have bonafide, at zero cost apprentice programs available for anybody who's interested in working hard and making a commitment and finding that career,” said Snyder.
