Why just girls?
There are many music summer camps and programs available to both boys and girls. We think that’s awesome, and we choose to offer something different. A girl-only environment helps us accomplish our goals of providing female role models for girls, encouraging teamwork among girls, and breaking down gender stereotypes.
At rock camp, everyone is expected to be themselves and express their gender however they want to. No one is expected to fit into a gender stereotype. We value diversity and free expression. The camp week is a unique and transformative experience, meant to take participants out of their everyday norm.
I wish this was around when I was a girl!
It’s not too late! We offer Ladies Rock Camp, a three-day rock n’ roll boot camp, to women ages 18 and up.
I want to come to your camp but I don’t live in Los Angeles. Can I still come?
Yes! You do not have to live in L.A. to attend camp. We have had campers come from as far away as Boston, Chicago, Greece and Mexico. If you are coming from out-of-town, know that we are not an overnight camp and we do not provide accommodations or meals.
I want to come to your camp but L.A. is too far from where I live, what can I do?
There are girls rock camps all over the United States and in other countries too! There are so many that we can’t keep track of them all. Luckily for everyone, the Girls Rock Camp Alliance does keep track and you can see the list under the “camps” menu of their website.
Are you hiring?
We are not not hiring at this time. We encourage you to volunteer if you’d like to be involved.
Can men volunteer?
It is our mission to provide girls with as many radically awesome female role models as possible. We prefer placing women in volunteer positions that involve direct instruction, mentorship and leadership. Some volunteer positions are open to any gender, and we encourage men to apply for those positions. We appreciate all of our amazing volunteers!
Do the girls have to like rock n’ roll music to participate in this camp?
No. The term “rock n’ roll” is meant as an ethos, not literal musical style. Girls who come to camp, as well as our instructors, are into all genres of music. We expose girls to a variety of styles, and we encourage them to be creative.
