The Campaign visits the National Association of Women in Construction summer camp for young women

The Campaign for Historic Trades and partner National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Training Center staff spent a day teaching historic trades skills to young women at the National Association of Women in Construction ‘s Camp NAWIC Baltimore, a free, week-long day camp for 7th to 12th grade girls to introduce them to a potential career in the construction industry.

The Campaign gave demonstrations on both masonry repointing and historic window reglazing and spoke to the campers about career opportunities in historic trades and preservation. For the masonry demonstration, campers learned how to mix mortar from sand, lime, and water and then repoint damaged masonry joints using traditional tools and techniques.


The Campaign for Historic Trades is a partnership between Preservation Maryland and NPS’ Historic Preservation Training Center created to strengthen and expand career opportunities in historic trades.
