The purpose of this paper is to outline the intent and key objectives of the Cal Poly Construction Management Summer Bootcamp. This project was developed through collaboration with Cal Poly Construction Management faculty and other contributors to create a multi-scope project with the objective of creating a summer bootcamp. The camp was proposed to assist the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education and the Central Coast Homebuilders Association with promoting skilled trades education in high schools. Local high schools currently implement the Building Industry Technology Academy (BITA) curriculum, which has proven difficult for students to enroll in or complete. To address this issue, the Cal Poly Construction Management Summer Camp will provide skilled trades training and implement the BITA curriculum to provide opportunity to complete the BITA program. The scope for this paper will focus on the scheduling aspect of the summer camp, specifically creating daily agendas and outlining learning objectives for each day, relating the learning objectives to the BITA curriculum to assist high school students with the completion of the BITA program. This camp will be one week long, intending to teach basic construction management skills, safety, and to complete a community-based construction project.
