|Magic campers Anne, left, Marissa and Noema work on a project.|
The annual program, held last month, is sponsored by the San Diego chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction and helps girls learn the trades. In addition to constructing the new storage buildings, apprentices (first-year students) were shown a new trade during each day of the camp; this included sheet metal, tile setting and electrical.
One of the camp's sponsors, Hawthorne Heavy Machinery, brought equipment to the program and on the camp's last day, apprentices were able to operate heavy machinery.
