Girls Rock Camp Tallahassee is a new summer camp that seeks to empower young women and girls through music, self-expression and community building. Girls Rock Camp started in Portland, OR in 2001 and its enormous impact can be seen in the hundreds of sister camps that have sprung up throughout the US and around the world. United by the Girls Rock Camp Alliance, these camps utilize the same basic approach: form campers into bands, guide them as they write one song, teach each camper how to play an instrument, and celebrate their achievements at a public concert at the end of the week. In addition to the music lessons, we have invited local artists, dancers and teachers of all kinds to conduct hour-long workshops as additions to the daily camp schedule. As we look forward to our inaugural camp in Tallahassee this July, we envision an exciting opportunity for creativity, community and fun. Though we can only accept 16 campers this year, we look forward to growing in the years to come.
