ABOUT THE CAMP
NEW 2020 DATES: AUGUST 10-14, 2020

Due to concerns about COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone the original dates for the 2020 camp from June 22-26, 2020 to August 10-14, 2020. The health and safety of our campers and our volunteers is of utmost importance. We look forward to seeing everyone in August!

Let's Build Construction Camp for Girls is a program designed for high school age girls to attend a free week-long camp to explore the construction trades, architecture, engineering, and construction manufacturing through hands on experiences and field trips.

 

Let's Build Our Future

CAMP OBJECTIVES
  • Provide girls an opportunity to explore a career in the construction industry.
     

  • Experience the construction trades through hands on learning and building.  
     

  • Learn about architecture, engineering, and manufacturing during construction-related field trips to area businesses. 

  • Develop greater self-esteem by teaching skills to solve challenging projects and successfully complete them.
     

  • Provide inspiration and mentoring for girls to understand they have a place in the construction industry, and they can become successful leaders in the future.
     

  • Develop a stronger workforce for the future of the construction industry. 

This unique construction camp introduces girls to the opportunities that await them within the construction industry. Please join members of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Eastern PA Chapter, and Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)-Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter support and inspire the youth in our Lehigh Valley community.

The goal is to ignite the spark within the girls to explore additional skill training in our local career technical schools, and post-secondary training with a local craft training program, two-year and/or four-year college path in engineering, architecture, construction management, or any other construction-related major.

We hope you will join with us in this positive effort to introduce girls to the world of construction by becoming a sponsor of the Let’s Build Construction Camp. Your support is needed to ensure the camp is FREE of any charge to the families. Thank you in advance for your consideration to support this inspirational camp.

All proceeds raised will help underwrite the operational costs to run the Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls and ensure that it is free for girls to attend.
