The 2017 edition of Camp NAWIC (National Association of Women in Construction) takes place June 19 – June 23, 2017 at Stanley E. Foster School of Engineering, Innovation & Design. This camp introduces female high school students to the construction industry in a positive and challenging manner.
Learn more about Camp NAWIC in this interview with Suzanne Ives of NAWIC San Diego, aired on KGTV 10 News:
High school girls can attend Camp NAWIC at no charge, learning the basic skills of carpentry, electrical, plumbing, sheet metal, concrete, surveying, and heavy equipment operation.
This camp is designed to challenge high school girls to discover the many opportunities available in our exciting and rewarding industry. Girls learn valuable trade and life skills.
Each of the apprentices will be provided with a set of small hand tools, a hard hat, tool bag and safety glasses. The journeymen will receive two additional tools to add to their tool bag. In the process of learning the apprentices will each complete several projects they will take home. The journeymen (returning campers) will put to use the skills they learned as apprentices at Camp NAWIC by building a project for the school campus.
Guest speakers and camp counselors will include men and women employed in the San Diego regional construction industry.
Future Construction Leaders Foundation is seeking financial sponsors to assist in creating a memorable experience for the students – one that will encourage them to pursue more information regarding a career in the construction industry.
