On December 5, the Roanoke Regional Chamber proudly partnered with Ardagh Group to host “Can Camp,” a program to expose fourth and fifth grade students to the manufacturing industry. Students from Hurt Park Elementary School and Big Brothers Big Sisters after-school programs participated in Can Camp.

During the event, students went on facility tours to see first-hand how cans are produced, learned about the science, technology, and history behind packaging production, and were made aware of future career opportunities in manufacturing.

Can Camp was made possible through the generous support of the Louise R. Lester Foundation.
