CHECK OUR OUR 2019 CAMP VIDEO ABOVE


Many young girls are unaware that a career in construction can be extremely fun and financially rewarding.  The first camp of its kind in the state of Pennsylvania was held by NAWIC Philadelphia during spring break in 2009.  MyWIC  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.  

MyWIC is a free, construction industry, day camp for 7th through 12th grade girls in the Philadelphia region.  MyWIC is sponsored by the  NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, and various organizations throughout the Philadelphia region.

PLANNING FOR THE 2022 CAMP is underway.
