Ladies Rock Camp in Seattle

Long time readers know that I am a camp counselor for Girl Rock! Seattle which is a non profit group that fosters leadership and self-esteem for girls 9-16 through music. The girls take up rock instrument instruction, form a band, write an original song, and perform a concert. In one week.

They are currently accepting applications for girls and volunteers for summer camp July 26 - 31. Please click HERE for more information. I cannot tell you how awesome this program is. I saw shy girls get up at the end of the week and rock out. Too Cool!

More exciting for the more adult aged ladies out there, is the announcement of our first Ladies Rock Camp. I went to ladies rock camp in Portland, OR this year and had a blast. Ladies Rock Camp is a fundraiser for the Girls Rock! Seattle program. Basically, it is the same program that the girls have, but condensed into 3 days (Fri-Sun). It's one of the best experiences of my life. At the camp I went to, the ages of the women ranged from 20s to 60s. There were even a few mother/daughter pairs there. Absolutely no experience is needed. This camp is for anyone who has ever wanted to be a rock star, hang out with cool women, or support music and leadership education for girls. (If you are from out of town and want to attend, we will help you find a host family to stay with if needed!)

Go HERE for more information and the application for Ladies Rock Camp in Seattle.

Here is some info from the website:

Ladies Rock Camp (LRC) is a weekend day camp in Seattle that serves as a fundraiser for Girls Rock! Seattle. LRC is an opportunity for ladies 19 and over to let loose for the weekend and play rockin' music together. You'll start to learn and/or practice your instrument of choice on Friday, then keep receiving instrument instruction all weekend. Meanwhile you'll also form a band and work together to write an original song you'll play on stage as a band on Sunday. The Ladies Rock Camp Showcase is an unbelievable experience! In the course of the weekend you'll also be offered a variety of workshops with topics related to being a lady rocker.
