Heavy Equipment Camp for Operators and Repairman

Hands-on Experience

At camp you will operate just about every type of equipment you normally see on the job site.  You will also meet industry representatives from companies that hire equipment operators and repairmen.  At the end of camp you will be aware of what it takes to become an operator or repairman and where it will lead you in the future. This will be a working camp, but we’re also going to have lots of fun!
