Check out the video of 2019 MyWIC Camp above!

MyWIC is a free, construction industry, day camp for 8th through 12th grade girls in the Philadelphia region.  The first camp of its kind in the state of Pennsylvania was held by NAWIC Philadelphia during spring break in 2009.  In 2019 MyWIC has been moved the newly created NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation to allow it to grow as a 501(C)3 non-profit organization.

Many young girls are unaware that a career in construction can be extremely fun and financially rewarding.  MyWIC  camp is designed to give girls real hands-on experience to gain better knowledge of the industry.  Girls experience the exhilaration of successfully performing tasks that promote leadership and team-building skills, as well as build self-confidence, self-esteem, and boost their overall self image.
