April 7, 2020 announcement
Welding Academy, Career Academy for Kids summer camp programs canceled
Char-Em ISD’s Career and Technical Education Department staff has had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel this year’s Career Academy for Kids and Welding Academy summer camps. The camps take place each year in late June. This is the first time in the camps’ 30- year history that they have not taken place, and we are all disappointed that they need to be cancelled this year due to the unknowns around COVID-19 restrictions. (CA4K was formerly known as College for Kids.) This year’s Welding Academy was set to have two different camps at a new location, East Jordan High School’s welding classroom; it had traditionally been held at the Industrial Arts Institute in Onaway.
We will greatly miss the interactions with students in grades 2 through 11 as they explored the fun and exciting camp programs with our awesome instructors at CA4K and Welding Academy. We will look forward to welcoming campers back in June of 2021!

The Char-Em ISD Welding Academy is taking a new direction for summer 2020! The Welding Academy will take place at East Jordan High School, where student will develop basic welding knowledge and skill application. They will participate in the creation of a team welding project and complete student-made take home projects. Students will experience first-hand what it is like to operate various equipment used in the welding industry, including welding power sources, grinders and manual plasma tables. This interactive experience will surely spark students’ interest and stretch their minds as they explore the exciting and rewarding opportunities available through a career as a welder and/or metal fabricator.
Transportation will be provided. More details to follow.
