WASHINGTON, D. C. - In addition to touting the “dignity of work” on the campaign trail, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown spends some of his summers touting the dignity of manufacturing work to kids enrolled in summer camps throughout Ohio.
Brown’s office started organizing the summer camps in 2013 as a way to make students aware of available manufacturing opportunities. In 2019, it organized 27 camps all over the state. After paring that down to three virtual camps last year during the coronavirus pandemic, Brown said nine counties including Northeast Ohio’s Portage, Summit, Lake and Geauga counties, are hosting manufacturing camps this summer in conjunction with his office. He said he hopes the program will return to more counties next year.
