Girls Rock Camp is a program of the Carolina Youth Action Project. CYAP is a grassroots nonprofit that uses music as a vehicle for social change and builds power among girls and transgender youth in Charleston, South Carolina. We develop feminist and anti-racist youth leaders through cultural organizing practices that blend music education, political education, and DIY media making.
Our Vision: We envision a Charleston in which girls and transgender youth…★ Trust and support each other.★ Create the images that represent them.★ Recognize the power and pleasure of their own creativity.★ Use music as a powerful way to communicate and exchange ideas.★ Are encouraged to value collaboration and community over competition.★ Have full control over their own bodies, sexualities, and reproductive health.★ Are safe and encouraged to explore their identities.★ Are able to bring every part of themselves into every moment and are continually affirmed in their wholeness.★ Are valued in a collective community dialogue about what a safe community would look like for everyone.★ We envision a Charleston where girlhood is a celebrated state of being.
Non-Discrimination Policy: Girls Rock Charleston values difference and does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational programs, admissions policies, and other camp-related policies and programs, as well as volunteer and employment related policies and activities.
We feel strongly about ensuring that camp is accessible to anyone who wants to share their summer with us and and our amazing rockers.
