Mission

Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a non-profit music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women through music education, volunteerism, and activities that foster self-respect, leadership skills, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.

Activities

Girls Rock! Camp is an intensive, six-day program featuring instrument instruction, workshops, songwriting, band practice, live performances by visiting artists, and a showcase concert. Campers receive instrument instruction each day in small groups organized by skill level and age. On the first day, campers form bands, and during daily band practice, campers write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. Campers also attend workshops on topics ranging from songwriting to sound engineering to self-defense. At the end of the week, bands perform their original song at a showcase concert. Workshops, classes, and band practice are led by volunteers. We strive for camp to be a week that is super fun and meaningful for campers from a variety of identities, perspectives, and experiences.
