No Typical Days at Girls at Work

Our camps are not like any your girls have ever attended. Everyday is different and a challenge that our builders take on with fierceness. They have to think, try, fail, and retry to solve building problems that they encounter. They learn to work with each other to help support one another. Their inner strength is built up because they witness the power that they have behind those power tools and see the amazing things that they were able to build and proudly bring home.

We have lots of fun while learning too.

The girls help tend our summer garden by planting, building trellises, tending, and finally picking the vegetables and flowers that grow.

Every day and week is different. We might build picnic tables to donate to non-profits one day, design Adirondack chairs to bring home, have a female visitor from engineering come by and show us how to do 3D Printing or electronics. You just never know what the week will bring. But one thing is for sure… you will build, you will gain confidence, you will be emPOWERed!

What to bring to Girls at Work

  • Breakfast snack and a Lunch
  • Hair ties to keep your hair up and away from tools
  • Water bottle
  • Wear sneakers or boots to protect your feet
  • Dress cool because the shop gets hot in the summer
  • Light jacket or sweater, if by chance it is one of those cool days
  • Sunscreen, because we will be doing work outside (Apply at home please)
  • Hat or baseball cap to protect your head from the sun
  • Your awesome attitude because we love that about you!
