Girls Build Powered by CBH Homes

CBH Homes is teaming up with Girls Build, a non-profit based out of Oregon to host a summer camp  for girls 8-14 years old! It’s a week of learning, building and FUN!!

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT TOOLS IN THE HANDS OF GIRLS?

Girls Build is a week long camp that teaches girls building skills, confidence, and FUN.

Here’s a glimpse into what their week will look like (with a CBH twist, of course):

Girls 8 – 14 years old attended camp for one week, Monday – Friday, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.  Breakfast and lunch are included each day. Campers attend two workshops in the morning, as well as in the afternoon.

Interspersed throughout the day are icebreakers and team bonding games, so girls can get to know each other, and build together better.

Forty girls attend camp and are split into four crews of 10. Each crew is led by two instructors at any given time, and girls are given their own hard hats, safety glasses and ear protection to take home. If girls are over 14, Girls Build encourages to them to consider becoming a junior counselor. This is not an overnight camp. Campers will need to be dropped off and picked up each day.

THE WHY

CBH Homes is proud to be 70% women, breaking the norm of the “male dominated construction industry”. According to the Labor Force Statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor, women make up only 10.3% of the construction workforce.

“Here at CBH Homes, we’re changing the perception of women in the industry. We see that we need to bring women in and are striving to do that with our first ever, Girls Build Summer Camp sponsored by CBH Homes,” said Ronda Conger, Vice President of CBH Homes.

CBH recognizes how crucial it is to bring young girls in contact with the construction industry and is excited to partner with Girls Build.

Join the movement and let’s GIRLS BUILD!
