Our intensive week-long summer programs teach girls and women how to use tools, build real-world projects, and connect with their community.
For girls and adult women, we offer week-long experiences by age group that challenge participants to think creatively, use tools ranging from speed squares to a chop saw and welder, and work together as a community of Fearless Builder Girls. Whether we’re fusing metal, chopping wood, laser-cutting or hand-drafting, our camps combine technical skills with personal voice and community purpose.
This week-long institute introduces girls ages 13-17 to multiple design and building techniques, skills, media, and a community of fearless builder women. From graphic design and screen printing to carpentry, welding, and architectural drafting, girls will explore the possibilities of building in their own lives, learning, and futures. This program is by application only, at no cost to participants if accepted, and limited to a cohort of 12 girls.
Over a week-long "bootcamp for builders" experience, girls will design and build projects for a real-world community client (a local pre-school, women's center, or community garden). Along the way, girls will learn skills in carpentry, digital design, metalwork, and more to design a meaningful project for their community. Our summer camps are taught by talented female educators and builders with decades of experience.
