About Camp

Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls L.A. is a day camp where girls ages 8-17 explore the joys and challenges of collaborative music-making while guided by inspirational female mentors.

In one week, campers form bands, write an original song and perform live at a music venue in L.A. such as El Rey or The Troubadour. Each day kicks off with punk-rock-yogaerobics to get our bodies moving, an inspired rendition of the camp theme song “We Rock L.A.,” and a hilarious yet educational skit by the Famous Rock Camp Skit Time Players. Morning sessions consist of group instruction in the instrument each camper has been assigned for the week and a workshop. Workshops at camp may include designing and screen-printing camper band t-shirts, songwriting, self-defense, zine-making, image and identity, recording, media literacy, and more! At lunch, a guest artist will take the outdoor stage to perform, talk about their work and take questions from campers. After lunch, campers have plenty of time to jam and write and rehearse their band’s song.

Any self-identified girl between the ages of 8-17 is encouraged to apply. Prior music experience is not required. All instruments are provided.
