Girls Rock Camp
Our mission for Girls Rock Jacksonville’s is to cultivate self-empowerment and positive identity development in girls, trans, and gender non-conforming youth through music experimentation, DIY media and peer collaboration. Girls Rock Camp is a week-long program serving girls ages 9-17 in the Jacksonville areas. During the week, campers learn an instrument, form a band and write a song which they perform at a showcase the Saturday following camp. In addition, the girls will participate in workshops centered around empowerment and creativity such as, Songwriting, Image & Identity, Self Defense, Zine-Making and more, all designed to cultivate self-empowerment and positive identity development in the campers.
GRJ values diversity and encourages girls from all backgrounds to apply for camp. Financial aid is available and no music experience is necessary!
