Girls Rock Camp is a week-long empowerment camp based on being in a rock band open to girls + trans and nonbinary youth ages 10-17. Campers will learn how to play an instrument, form a band, write an original song together, and then perform their song at a *real* concert for their family, friends, and future fans. It's so much FUN! Campers will spend the week making new friends, attending educational workshops, and collaborating with local women + trans and nonbinary folks to create music and art. We welcome campers of all skill levels, from “I’ve never even seen a bass!” to “check out this sweet drum solo!” No experience necessary!
Although music and art are major aspects of this program, Girls Rock Camp is *not* a music camp. The week largely focuses on feminism and inclusion. We aim to build self-confidence and foster a sense of belonging while nurturing a supportive, encouraging environment. Many of our workshops and group activities include topics such as self-care, social justice, and community building.
This year's theme is ROOTED & GROWING. The curriculum will be focused on building a strong foundation of values and being patient with ourselves & others while we become who we are in this ever-changing world. <3
