CAMP INFO:Our mission is to empower girls* to believe in themselves by providing a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance. In a weeklong summer session run by adult community volunteers, girls gain meaningful life skills of collaboration, problem solving, and positive self-expression in a creative, supportive environment.
Campers will meet and form bands, learn how to play an instrument (guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, or vocals), compose original songs and perform live to hundreds of family, friends, and community members at a local rock venue and record a song in a professional recording studio– all in one week’s time. Throughout each session, GRL also provides daily workshops geared towards building self-esteem and encouraging self-expression and awareness.
At GRL, 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.
SCHEDULE:Camp activities begin at 9:00 AM and end at 4:30 PM each day. Campers can arrive as early as 8:30 AM. Instruments will be provided to all campers and no musical experience is required!
DEADLINE:We have limited space available, so please submit your application by the deadline, JUNE 18, 2016. 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 in the future. SLIDING SCALE TUITION:We seek to support each child who wants to participate in Girls Rock Camp. We also recognize that not all members of our community have equal access to financial resources. One way we can acknowledge these economic differences and provide access to our programs for all campers is by providing sliding scale tuition. With our sliding scale tuition, each family is able to determine how much they are able to contribute to our program. We do not want tuition costs to deter anyone from applying to camp.
