Ladies Camp

We are pleased to announce that Girls Rock! Chicago will be hosting the return of Ladies Rock Camp in 2016! The dates are:

Friday, July 8th to Sunday, July 10th
Showcase: Sunday, July 10th at The Hideout

Ladies Rock Camp (LRC) will 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.

LRC is a fundraiser for tuition assistance for our girls’ camps. The full cost of camp is $300, though we will have limited financial aid available as well.

Need more details? Contact our Program Coordinator, Jess LeMaster, at or 773 289 2670.


About Ladies Rock! Camp

Ladies Rock! Camp is a fundraiser for Girls Rock! Chicago summer camp. At this intensive weekend-long workshop, women, transgender (any identity) and gender nonconforming folks ages 21 & up will follow a program similar to what the girls do at our summer camp: learn an instrument, form a band, write a song, and perform it – in just three days! If you are one of the many people who has thought, “I wish Girls Rock! Chicago was around when I was a kid!” this is for YOU. Each applicant will choose to play guitar, bass, or drums as their main instrument for the weekend. We assign instruments on a first come, first serve basis, so we ask that you also provide us with a second choice instrument. NO MUSICAL EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. You can view a previous year’s Ladies Rock! Camp Schedule here.
