Rock Out as a Camper!

This position is ideal for youth who are new to Rock Camp! Girls, trans youth, and gender nonconforming youth ages 9-18 who attend as campers learn how to play guitar, bass, drums, or the keyboard, write an original song with their band, and perform in front of friends, family, and community members at our camp showcase. Throughout the week, campers also participate in workshops focusing on a variety of issues including: gender and sexuality, anti-racism, self-defense, screen printing, self-care, and more.
