Fall ARC will take place November 30- Dec. 2 at Mastery Charter - Thomas Campus, which is at 927 Johnston Street in South Philadelphia. Camp will run from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening. All meals are provided, and childcare is available upon request. Tuition is sliding scale $50 to $450. If you have any questions about tuition or would like to request a tuition exchange, please contact us!
Through our application process, we want to learn more about the people applying to camp. What is your relationship to music? Why do you rock? What identities do you bring with you? What are you looking for in this weekend? We regularly receive more applications than we have camper spots, so we are not able to accept everyone who applies.
We want to use this application to ensure a diverse camper cohort who bring a mix of musical interests and experiences. GRP is committed to making ARC available to and informed by the multitude of different communities across Philly. We believe the power of ARC comes from the way music brings so many different people to the table. However, we recognize that we live in a context that has historically denied material + educational access to marginalized communities— the same communities who, despite struggle, provided us much of the historical foundation of today’s music. Mindful of these inequities, GRP is committed to making ARC accessible through providing sliding scale tuition, utilizing ADA spaces, and exploring new outreach strategies.
GRP is shaped by its participants, and we want to ensure our ARC campers reflect the incredible diversity of Philadelphia. We’re excited to learn more about you!
In this application, you'll tell us your instrument preferences as well as other helpful information. You do not need music experience to participate in ARC. Note: We are not offering a DJ track this fall as we continue work to strengthen our turntable and electronic music curriculum. If you're interested in helping or learning more, please get in touch!
