Summer Manufacturing & Skilled Trade Camp

The 2021 Summer Manufacturing & Skilled Trades Camp was a major success. The camp is an initiative that Senator Sherrod Brown has promoted and is now in 19 counties in Ohio. This year’s summer camp took place at the Defiance Dream Center from June 14 through June 16. It targeted students in grades sixth through eighth. The students were educated on construction and automotive trades by the instructors at the Dream Center. On the final day of camp, students took tours of different Defiance County manufacturing companies. 

Thank you to our Sponsors.

You made it all possible for these young

individuals to leave the camp with friends

and a better understanding of Manufacturing

and Skilled Trades.
