2020 Camper Application
Please read carefully before filling out application
Miami Girls Rock Camp is a week-long summer day camp for girls and non-binary youth aged 8 to 17. Our mission is to use music and performance as a platform to promote self-esteem, community, and creative expression. Campers do not need to have any musical experience, and instruments are provided.
***Applicants must be at least 8 years old by the beginning date of camp (7/20/2020) to be considered***
The program offers instrument instruction, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists/DJs, and workshops. The week culminates in a showcase concert. Campers receive 1.5 hours of instruction each day on selected instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals), in semi-private groups organized by skill-level and age. Campers are organized into bands and write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. Every day of camp, we have a DJ/Band lunch hour, giving campers the opportunity to watch a performance while they have lunch. After the DJ/Band finishes their set, there is a Q&A with the artist. Campers gain first-hand exposure to professional musicians through performances and workshops with a variety of topics. At the end of the week, camper bands perform their original songs at a finale showcase at a local music venue.
***Camp runs Monday, July 20th – Friday, July 24th, with a grand finale showcase on Sunday, July 26th***
HOURS: Monday-Friday 9am-5pm (drop off 8:30-9am and pick up 5-5:30pm).
Sunday’s Finale will take place at The Ground Miami.

APPLICATION DETAILS AND DEADLINES
We will accept 50 campers this year, roughly half in the 8-12 age group and half in the 13-17 age group. Due to the limited amount of spots available, we are not able to accept all applicants. Those who do not get accepted will be given a spot on the waiting list. We encourage you to get in your completed applications as soon as possible. We will send updates of our acceptance timeline as soon as we have enough submissions. If a camper is accepted, additional information will be sent along with acceptance results. Because one of the goals of MGRC is to create a camp with youth who have a diversity of skill levels, instrument interest, and demographic backgrounds, we will review applications with these things in mind.
