Summer Camp

What’s Rock Camp all about?

Our week-long summer camp program is for girls and trans youth (regardless of identity) ages 9-17 who are ready to get creative, be curious, and have fun!


Empowerment

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

Music

At summer camp every camper learns an instrument (guitar, bass, vocals, or drums) with the help of dedicated and talented volunteer instructors and teen interns. Campers also experience a wide range of music-based workshops such as “Hip-Hop Elements,” “The History of Women and Trans Artists in Music,” “Stage Presence,” and more!

Community

Rock Camp is a community of supportive allies who are committed to lifting each other up and supporting positive social change through music. Made up of musicians, our campers, their families, our volunteers, staff, board, activists, 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.

Fun!

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!
