Summer Camp

What's rock camp all about?

Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls Summer Camp is a 6-day music empowerment program welcoming girls, transgender (regardless of identity), and gender non-conforming youth ages 9-17.

Registration is now open!



At summer camp we encourage our campers to discover the power of their voice through collaborative music creation and performance.


At summer camp every camper learns an instrument, forms a band, writes an original song, and performs their song live at a local Portland venue.


Rock Camp is a community of supportive allies made up of our campers, their families, our volunteers, staff, board, and donors who all value and uphold what we believe…

Social Justice

At summer camp we engage our campers in workshops on gender identity, cultural appropriation, racial and gender equity in music, and identifying stereotypes in the media. We encourage campers to understand and engage with these topics so they feel confident in supporting social justice in the world.

Life Skills

Collaboration, problem solving, effective communication, listening, and time management are just some of the skills that are learned during the course of tackling the challenges of a week at Rock Camp.


Dancing, singing, getting loud, being silly, making a zine, designing a logo, screen printing, sometimes even slip ’n’ slides are all part of the fun at Rock Camp!
