Summer camp is an opportunity for for girls to learn fun building basics in a safe environment from female role models.  Over the course of the week, girls will learn the basics of framing a house, wiring electrical circuits, roofing, concrete, soldering copper, tree climbing, painting, mechanical problem solving and big pipe plumbing.  Girls will be building a playhouse that will be donated to a local non-profit, and will see the project through from plans to paint. 

Girls receive a hard hat, safety glasses and ear protection, and will bring home one personal project.
