Camp NAWIC Orange County
Girls-Only Introduction to Construction
Camp NAWIC Orange County provides a unique week-long, hands-on approach to a construction career to girls in grades 8-12 at no cost to the participants. Campers learn the basic elements of various construction trades such as carpentry, electrical, plumbing, sheet metal, landscaping, geology, concrete, and tile. Seasoned mentors and role models are on hand to support them every step of the way. Campers also learn the concepts of team building and a team approach in completing their tasks. Working together in the spirit of cooperation, campers learn to understand and then demonstrate effective communication in order to achieve the intended result.
Most importantly, campers develop greater self-confidence and better self-esteem as they tackle and successfully complete challenging projects.
Who Should Attend: Camp NAWIC is open to girls grades 8-12.
Cost: Free to participants, but space is limited to 50 campers.
Upcoming Events: June 24-28, 2019
