We Rock Athens Camp by Girls Rock Athens - Registration Form
We Rock Athens Camp is a day camp for youth who identify with a marginalized gender (girls, trans youth, and nonbinary youth) that will be held Monday, July 29th through Friday, August 2nd, 2019. 2019 is our 9th year of this youth camp in Athens! Although it is referred to as a "Rock" camp, we think of Rock as our ethos, not our genre. Youth are encouraged to pursue any genres they are interested in in their bands. The performance will be the afternoon or evening of Saturday, August 3rd. Venue for the performance to be announced. Registration will be open until camp is filled, at which point we’ll start a waiting list.
