Registration is open for the popular Girls Build camp scheduled in Warrenton this summer.

The camp is co-sponsored by Hampton Affiliates and the Warrenton-Hammond School District and is run by women in the construction trades. It provides a hands-on opportunity for girls ages 8 to 15 to develop building skills and learn about the high-paying skilled crafts.

In prior years, participants have built playhouses, benches and picture boxes and worked with circular saws, nail guns, drills and sanders.

The weeklong camp is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 23-27 and includes breakfast and lunch. Cost for the Warrenton camp is $310 and some scholarships are available. To sign up, go to
