Forestry Trades Camp

Forestry Trades Camp

A collaboration between Aspen View Public Schools, High Prairie School Division and Careers: the Next Generation, the Forestry Trades Camp offers hands-on experiences in forestry trades to Grade 10 students from both school divisions and from invited neighbouring school divisions.

A video summarizing experiences from the 2018 camp can be found here.

There are two components to the program:

1. Forestry Mill Visits take place on April 30 and May 8, 2019 . Participating students will tour forestry mills in the region, meet mill journeymen and chat with them about their jobs. Deadline to apply for the mill visits has been extended to April 28 and May 3.

2. 30 students who successfully participate in the Forestry Mill tours will be selected to participate in a four-day Forestry Trades Camp May 28-31, 2019 at Camp Wright on Narrow Lake, Athabasca County. Participants will have hands-on 'try a trade' opportunities and will take part in other learning experiences including canoeing, cooperative games, RAP presentations, Junior Forest Ranger presentations, and daily interactions with elders. Students will also have the opportunity to complete their Class 7 Driver's Training. Deadline to apply for the camp is May 3.

Students selected to participate in the Forestry Trades Camp will be required to download, read and complete the following forms, then submit them to their school principal:
