Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) is a non-profit 6-day summer day camp where girls (only) learn instrument instruction and participate in workshops such as self-defense, zine and screen-printing, songwriting and body image. The workshops aim to support and encourage participants on their journeys of self-discovery and artistic expression. Over the course of six days, campers also form rock bands and learn basic band, teamwork, group creativity and communication skills. At the end of camp, the campers’ bands play their very own rock showcase, which will be open to the public.
Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) registration is open to all girls from ages 10 to 18; no previous musical experience is required, all skill levels are welcome. If a camper does not have her own instrument, camp organizers aim to have instruments (guitars, basses, keyboards, and drums) available to borrow at no extra cost. The fee for the camp program is $250 with a limited number of scholarship opportunities. Registration is currently limited to 60 campers. Volunteers are needed to help in all areas including instrument instruction and sound and technical engineering, self-defense instruction, zine making and general camp counseling. If you’d like to help but are unavailable to volunteer, Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) will accept monetary donations and donations of new and used musical instruments and gear of all kinds. Specifically, the camp is in need of guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, drumsticks, microphones, mic and music stands, instrument and amplifier cables, straps, picks and instrument tuners.
