UA 400 Welding Merit Badge Clinic

It’s never too early to identify an aptitude or interest in the Pipe Trades. This video features a Plumbers & Steamfitters UA 400 Welding Merit Badge Clinic. 192 Boy Scouts from the Bay-Lakes Council participated at Camp Rokilio in Kiel WI. UA 400 members provided the scouts with hands-on experience in welding fundamentals and practical welding skills. UA 400 and four signatory contractors donated all the necessary equipment including 12 diesel-drive welders, protective equipment, tools and materials. This program is one example of UA 400’s focus on accelerating youth interest in the Pipe Trades.
