Forge the Future Summer Camp

Explore the world of forging through the Forging Foundation’s two -day Forge the Future Summer Camp. Students 11-15 years old will have the opportunity to tour a forging facility, participate in STEAM and team building activities, and learn how to forge. Plus, campers will get to take home their own forging!

The goal of Forge the Future Camp is to…

  • Expose students to manufacturing and the forging industry at a young age.
  • Engage kids in hands on activities related to STEM, and more specifically - the forging industry.
  • Create memorable experiences for children in your community.
  • Educate both kids and their families about manufacturing careers.
  • Build the future of forging and keep the industry strong for the next generation!
