Ladies! Get involved by volunteering for camp week! No musical experience is necessary. Our camp team is in need of counselors, junior counselors (age 17-18), instrument instructors, band coaches, workshop leaders, and more. Read about all of our camp positions here.
In July of 2015, Girls Rock Detroit will offer its first week-long summer camp for girls and female-identifying youth ages 8 to 16, at MSU's Community Music School-Detroit in midtown Detroit. Through the course of the week, the campers, many of whom have no formal musical experience, will receive instrument instruction, form bands and write their own original songs.
In addition to song-writing, the girls will attend workshops about a variety of subjects and view an interactive performance by a local female artist or band at the end of each day. The camp week concludes on Saturday, July 18 with a concert showcasing the original music of each of the bands at the Detroit Institute of Music Education.
Girls Rock Detroit is a safe, positive space filled with supportive role-models. Campers are mentored in an empowering all-female environment filled with seasoned musicians, educators and activists.
