What are your locations?
Currently, Girls Build is in four locations: In Oregon, we are in Portland, Josephine County, Tillamook and the North Coast (Astoria/Warrenton). We also hold camp in Seattle, Washington.
We offer after school classes in Portland. Stay tuned for upcoming programming.
We love Girls Build. Can you come to our town?
We would love to come to your town, but we also don’t get to chase every idea we love. We have grown so much since we were founded in February of 2016, but we like to grow methodically and conscientiously. It costs between $50k and $70k for one week of camp when we travel. As it turns out, it takes a lot to teach the building trades in a safe and supportive environment. If you are a sponsor who is interested in funding us, get in touch.
Are you franchising?
How much does one week of camp cost?
Our weekly cost depends upon the location. Our real cost is between $800 and $1200 per camper, and we charge campers between $200 and $450 (excluding scholarships), depending upon location. And yes, scholarships are available. Approximately 1/3 of our campers attend on scholarships.
Can we come in from out of town?
Yes, of course. Our camps run from 8am - 4pm daily, and we had out of town campers at every camp in 2018. Come explore a new city while your camper explores the world of building.
Can I get a refund?
We are happy to give you a full refund if you cancel with at least one month’s notice. Within one month of camp, we can refund 1/2 of your camp fee. Within two weeks of the camp start date, we cannot refund your camp fee. Caveat: If we have a wait list and can replace your camper with a paying camper, we will give you a full refund.
