This year, we’ll be holding all three camps at Josephinum Academy, located at 1501 N. Oakley Ave., in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. We welcome girls, transgender (any identity) and gender nonconforming youth ages 8 to 16 to join us for five days of instrument instruction and band practice, as well as a performance at Thalia Hall and a professional recording session with their band. Campers MUST attend all seven days to participate in camp!
LADIES ROCK CAMP
Session One: Friday, July 8th to Sunday, July 10th
Showcase: Sunday, July 10th
Ladies Rock Camp (LRC) will also be held at Josephinum Academy, located at 1501 N. Oakley Ave., in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. Women, transgender (any identity) and gender nonconforming folks ages 21 & up are welcome to join us for two days of instrument instruction and band practice, as well as a performance at a professional music venue. This program is perfect for anyone who has ever said, “I wish I could have gone to Girls Rock Camp when I was a kid!”
LRC is a fundraiser for tuition assistance for our girls’ camps. The full cost of camp is $300, though we will have some financial aid available as well.
We’ll be releasing both camp applications on our website the second week of April.
