Automotive Days

Where

Pick up and Drop off: University of Portland - 5000 N. Willamette Blvd, Portland, OR 97203
Please see map below for specific location on campus PLEASE NOTE: This is a different drop off location than camp! The simplest route is to enter via Portsmouth, and take the small entrance just after the baseball field. Campers will be dropped off in front of the cafeteria with a staff person, and you can loop around that parking lot in order to exit.

Times

8am - 2:15pm

Where are they going? 

Campers will be bused from University of Portland to World of Speed in Wilsonville. The bus is chartered by EcoShuttle, and a Girls Build chaperone will be present with them throughout the day. 

Drop Off Specifics

Pick up and drop off at the parking lot by the cafeteria, which is behind Shiley Hall and the tennis center (roughly). Look for Girls Build staff. You can park in that parking lot, or just pull up to the staff and sign in on the iPad. 

NOTE: We will be using an app called Kinderlime to facilitate the sign-in/sign-out process and you will require a 4-digit PIN to drop off and pick up a child from camp.  This PIN will be emailed to you prior to camp.  It is not necessary for you to download the app as you just need the PIN, however if you would like updates on your child's camp day we will be posting some to the app.

Pick Up Specifics

You will need to sign your camper out, which can be done at the registration table, or with the counselor at the curb.

Food

Girls Build will provide breakfast and lunch. Breakfast will be generously donated by Bon Appetite, and lunch will be provided by Girls Build. If your child has any dietary restrictions, please send along a lunch, as we will very likely be having pizza. 

WHAT TO WEAR

Participants MUST wear:

  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Short or pants (skirts and dresses are welcome but may hinder her ability to fully participate)
  • Shirts with sleeves (not necessarily long-sleeves, just no tank tops). 

Weather

Campers will be inside an air conditioned space essentially all day, including on the bus, so heat should not be a problelm. 

PAYMENT

This day is included in your camper fees as part of a generous donation by the Marie Lamfrom foundation. No extra payment will be charged.
