“I came to this camp to have fun and build houses,” she said.

Kristen Benedict, the dean at CNM’s School of Applied Technologies, said offering the camp was a no-brainer.

“This was an opportunity for us to showcase our great programs in carpentry,” she said.

The students spend a week building, painting and learning skills they can use for a lifetime.

Benedict believes that the camp gives the middle school-aged children a taste of what could one day become a life-long career in carpentry.
