Summer Camp is a week-long day camp where campers receive instruction on the instrument of their choice, attend workshops, form a band with new friends, write an original song together, and perform in a showcase at a local venue in front of hundreds of supporters.
We welcome individuals who are female, trans (regardless of identity), or gender non-conforming to apply to be a camper at Girls Rock! Rochester.
No musical experience is necessary! Instruments provided!
Youth between the ages of 8-16 by the start of camp may apply.
Participants are selected by a committee seeking to establish a balanced and diverse camp population in relation to instrument, age, previous musical experience, economic status, geography and community. We anticipate receiving more applications than spots available, meaning we may not be able to accept every applicant who applies. Additional information about camp will be sent with acceptance letters.
