Girls Rock North Carolina is a nonprofit organization focused on empowering girls and women to become confident and engaged members of their community through creative expression. The program uses music as a way to build community and self-esteem by centering around creativity, confidence, and collaboration. The organization’s biggest program is Rock Camp for Girls. The camp is a one week summer event in which campers between the ages 9-16 are instructed in an instrument of their choice, form bands, and write original music with their peers. This year the event is the week of July 22nd at Saint Mary’s School. Activities between band practices include attending workshops on songwriting, self defense, DIY, zine making, deejaying, body confidence, and more. During their time at camp, the girls are mentored by musicians, educators, and activists. The week concludes with a showcase at King’s in downtown Raleigh on Friday, July 26th at 6:00 pm.
No musical background or instrument are necessary to participate! If you sign up your girls before March 1st, then the $10 registration fee is waived!
