RangerACE Construction Camp is a one-week day camp designed to introduce incoming 9th graders and 10th graders (ages 13-15) in the Austin area to an exciting and rewarding career in construction. Over the course of 5 days, each camper will be given the opportunity to explore construction-related careers with professionals, while helping to build a personal foundation for excellence.
They are offering two one-week sessions in 2018 at NO CHARGE for qualifying applicants (there is a refundable $50 application fee). Each session will feature 20 campers. Given the limited number of spaces available, it's important to apply soon.
Each camp will be divided into teams of five (4 campers per team), and each team will form their own construction company to complete the tasks each day. Throughout the week students will design, estimate, bid, layout and construct an 8’ x 8’ concrete pit stall at Driveway Austin, a Go-Kart Track in Austin.
THE FINALE: On the last day of each week, campers will compete in a GO-KART RELAY RACE, which will begin from the pit stalls the RangerACE campers made!
