Eureka, MO – About 20 Missouri Women in Trades (MOWIT) volunteers and supporters worked over 430 donated hours in eight work days here at Camp Wyman, a facility that offers retreats, school and youth camps for children.

The camp was officially founded in 1898 and the main program is its Wyman Leaders Program, which gives teens the opportunity to learn from each other and the land around them through summer residential experiences.

MOWIT helped the camp remove and replace 125 feet of privacy fence, an old concrete stoop and a handicap ramp off the grand hall building, which is used for many of the activities at the camp. NuWay Rentals donated the use of an air compressor and tools, and 84 Lumber donated all of the materials needed for the build.

“A huge thank you goes out to all the volunteers who donated all the time and worked hard to make these important upgrades to the camp,” said MOWIT President Aly Martinez. “And a special thank you to our sponsors.”

The MOWIT Workdays program organizes all planning, tools, the necessary items and skilled volunteers for construction services to local area nonprofits free of charge, while at the same time, using these volunteer opportunities as a recruitment effort to put tools in the hands of women who may be thinking about a career in construction.

Workdays began in 2017, and to date, MOWIT has held over 50 workdays. Stay tuned for upcoming workday opportunities at
