Queer Rock Camp is a weeklong music camp for queer, gender variant, gender non-conforming and allied youth ages 12-18. Youth and volunteers come from near and far to join their peers in this unique and imperative program. Queer Rock Camp amplifies the voice of a population that is usually silent — allowing youth to be loud and to express themselves honestly and authentically through music. NO MUSIC EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! This is a camp like no other- you will make new friends and gain confidence that lasts a lifetime.
Queer Rock Camp empowers LGBTQ youth and allies while building community through musical collaboration in a safer space. We support the fluidity of gender, sexuality, and identities and provide educational workshops and skillshares to amplify confidence, creativity and self-expression. We are anti-oppression, and counter ageism by encouraging youth to be fully involved in the process of organizing and leading camp activities.
