Girls Rock Whitesburg! 2019 - Camper Application
Thank you for your interest in WMMT's Girls Rock Whitesburg Summer Camp! We are looking forward to receiving your application. Please read it carefully – there is a lot of information and we cannot consider incomplete applications. Girls Rock Camp will take place July 29th - August 3rd. Girls Rock Whitesburg is open to girls, gender non-conforming, and trans youth ages 12 to 18 years old.

Our mission is to empower girls, gender-nonconforming, and trans youth to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance. In a week-long summer session run by adult community volunteers, campers gain meaningful life experiences of collaboration, problem solving, self-expression, and social justice awareness in a creative, supportive environment.

Campers will meet and form bands, learn how to play an instrument (guitar, bass, drums, or vocals), compose original songs and perform live to hundreds of family, friends, and community members in the Appalshop Theater – all in one week’s time! Throughout each session, Girls Rock Whitesburg also provides daily workshops geared towards building self-esteem, encouraging self-expression and social justice awareness.

At Girls Rock Whitesburg, we seek to create a supportive community of peers and positive mentors that encourage and teach girls to be their own music heroes, allowing them to think differently about limits that may be placed upon them by our society. Our programming provides unique opportunities that are rarely found elsewhere: we use music as a vehicle to eradicate limiting myths about gender and age; we increase access and exposure to music education and hands-on learning; and our programming encourages collaboration, leadership skills, and self-confidence.

*We have limited space available, so please submit your application by the deadline, JUNE 2nd, 2019. It is very important that campers attend the full week of camp and the showcase, so they can participate in the entire program. If your child is unable to attend the full week, we ask that you consider applying again another time.

Girls Rock Whitesburg will be offering camp tuition-free. This includes instruments, materials for workshops, art supplies, camp t-shirts, band t-shirts, lunch and snacks for all campers, and dinner prior to the August 3rd showcase concert. Girls Rock Whitesburg receives most of our funding through grassroots fundraising. We rely on support from our community to run and grow our programming, so we welcome any donations whether monetary or in-kind.
