All ‘Bout Construction (ABC) Girls’ Camp

ABC Keystone All bout Construction Girls Camp

A Summer Camp Experience Introducing Girls to Careers in Construction!

Construction – It’s Not Just for Boys!

Careers in Construction offer competitive salaries, unparalleled skills, potential for leadership growth, and a feeling of satisfaction.

ABC Keystone encourages young women to learn more about these career opportunities during the Chapter’s All ’bout Construction Girls Camp open to girls ages 14-19* and scheduled for June 13-16, 2022.

The All ’bout Construction Girls Camp provides girls the opportunity to explore careers in construction through inspiration and mentoring from industry professionals. Campers will experience several construction trades as they build skills through multiple hands-on activities. Through other individual and group activities, the girls will also gain effectiveness in problem solving and managing team dynamics. Field trips with local contractors are scheduled throughout the four-day camp to ensure campers get to see construction in action. At the ABC Keystone training facility, attendees will utilize their newly-gained knowledge of select trades to build their very own take-home projects!

*This camp is grant-funded through the Lancaster County Workforce Development Board. Priority will be given to first-time campers and residents of Lancaster County.
