2019 Camper Application
Thank you for your interest in Bay Area Girls Rock Camp!

Our summer camp is a week-long program for girls ages 8-18. Campers attend instrument lessons, form a band, collaboratively write an original song, participate in daily music and empowerment-related workshops, and perform with their band at a live showcase at the end of the week.

Summer 2019 Dates:

Session 1: June 10th - 14th // Showcase June 15th
TEEN WEEK: July 8th - 12th // Showcase July 13th (open to campers ages 13-18)
Session 3: July 22nd - 26th // Showcase July 27th

Camp will be held at Oakland School for the Arts in Downtown Oakland. Camp runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Showcases will take place at a location to be determined in downtown Oakland on Saturday from 2-5pm.

Tuition is $0-$500 sliding scale, with no one turned away for lack of funds. Full and partial financial aid is readily available. If you plan on applying for financial aid, please fill in the financial aid application in addition to this application so that we can determine your tuition amount.

Please give us at least a week to respond to your application.

If you have any questions or problems filling out this form, please give us a call at (510) 267-1808 or email arianna@bayareagirlsrockcamp.org
