2013 Summer Camp is coming and we need YOU to help make camp happen.
Girls Rock! Chicago will be offering two week-long sessions of Girls Camp in this, our 8th year! Both camps will take place at Suder Montessori (2022 W. Washington Blvd), and volunteers are needed to fill all camp week positions.
Session One: Monday, July 8 - Sunday, July 14
Session Two: Monday, August 5 - Sunday, August 11
Girls Rock! Chicago relies entirely on volunteers to staff our week-long summer camps, weekend-long ladies rock camp, as well as help with fundraising, outreach and events in the months leading up to camp. Past volunteers have done everything from working security shifts at summer music festivals, to teaching drums at camp and photographing our End-of-Camp Extravaganza performance. Whatever your talents, chances are there’s a niche for you at Girls Rock! Chicago.
VOLUNTEERING AT CAMP:
There are three primary, week-long positions that volunteers fill during camp week: counselors, band coaches, and instrument teachers. Each plays a vital role and we ask that you only apply to these positions if you are serious about making a commitment to the entire week of camp.
Can’t be there all week? There are also multiple part-time positions available including everything from snack delivery to presenting hour-long workshops.
Girls Rock! Chicago welcomes all volunteers who are female, transgender (regardless of identity), and/or gender non-conforming, to apply for camp-week positions. We are committed to providing a safe space for everyone, as well as educating staff, volunteers, and community members in order to create an inclusive environment for all. Positions outside of camp week are open to everyone.
All applicants must participate in a brief interview with a GR!C staff member, to be conducted in person in the months leading up to camp.
Looking for Volunteer Opportunities Outside of Camp Week?
If you can’t commit to camp week itself, don’t worry—we still need you! Whether you can help spread the gospel of GR!C from behind a booth at a music festival, or just showing up to support the girls when they rock out at their End-of-Camp Performance Extravaganza, we truly value your support.
We’ll also love you if can donate gear (new or used); donate T-shirts, art supplies or other crafty gems for camp-week activities; host a benefit show, or a fundraising event at your place of business; or just make a fiscal donation in any amount — because every dollar counts!
Thank You for supporting GR!C
