MOORHEAD — A camp meant to introduce teens to construction trades will be held June 6-10 and 13-17 at Minnesota State Community and Technical College, Moorhead.

The Herdina Construction Trades Camp, sponsored by Home Builders Care of Fargo-Moorhead, is open to North Dakota and Minnesota high school students ages 15 and older.

The camp will offer exposure to many different occupations within the construction industry, such as capentry, concrete, drywall, electrical, HVAC, refrigeration, masonry, plumbing, print reading and more.

This year, students will construct observation bridges to be used at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds for its corn maze. They will work side-by-side with industry and education professionals, learning about occupations, tools, safety requirements, and skills required for these careers.

The cost to attend is $100.
Upon completion, students may earn high school credit and/or M State will transcript three college credits to the student's academic record.
