GANSEVOORT — An inaugural Construction Summer Camp for middle school girls will launch next month, thanks to the Northeast Construction Trades Workforce Coalition. The camp aims to break down gender barriers in the construction industry.

“By hosting this unique camp tailored specifically for middle school girls, we aim to cultivate their interest in construction early on, providing them with the skills, confidence, and support they need to pursue rewarding careers in this traditionally male-dominated field,” said Doug Ford, president of the Northeast Construction Trades Workforce Coalition, in a statement.

The camp will take place on July 22-26 at the Whitbeck Construction Education Center in Gansevoort. Campers will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities and learn how math, technology, science, and design apply to construction. They will tour local businesses and contraction sites. The camp culminates in a Construction Olympics.
