LEHIGH VALLEY LET'S BUILD CONSTRUCTION CAMP FOR GIRLS; A SUCCESSFUL SECOND YEAR

The award-winning Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls took place at the ABC Eastern Pa. Chapter Allentown Office from July 9-13. ABC was proud to host the second annual camp at its Allentown Training Facility to introduce girls ages 14-18 to the world of construction.


The Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls was a collaborative effort between Associated Builders and Contractors-Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, Construction Specifications Institute-Greater Lehigh Valley Chapter, and the ACE Mentor Program-Lehigh Valley Chapter to take a proactive approach to address workforce shortages in the AEC industry. The 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. The camp was 100% underwritten by sponsorship support from ABC, CSI members, and other industry-related companies.


The objectives of the Let’s Build Construction Camp for Girls are:

  • 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.
