Girls Build July 23-27 (ages 12-14)

University of Portland Campus

Inspiring Curiosity & Confidence

During one-week summer camps, girls 8 - 14 years old learn the basics of building, including carpentry, plumbing, electricity, concrete, sheet metal and much more! Girls have fun with other girls their age, learning the basics of many trades from skilled female instructors.

Camp Details

This year, girls attend camp for one week, Monday - Friday, from 8am - 4pm.  Included in their days, and their camp fees, are both breakfast and lunch.  Campers attend two workshops in the morning, as well as in the afternoon.  Interspersed throughout the day are icebreakers and team bonding games, so girls can get to know each other, and build together better.

Forty girls attend camp per week, and are split into four crews of 10.  Each crew is led by two instructors at any given time, and girls are given their own hard hats, safety glasses and ear protection to take home. 

2018 registration opens on February 13th.  Camp costs $350, includes breakfast, lunch and all safety gear.  Scholarships are available.  There is no wait list for camp--get February 13th on your calendar!
