Girls & Ladies Rock MKE

GIRLS ROCK CAMP PROGRAMMING

WHAT HAPPENS AT CAMP?

At camp, girls will form a band, learn to play an instrument (bass, drums, guitar, keyboard, and vocals), write a song and at the end of the week perform in a rock and roll showcase at a local venue. The objective of the camp is to give girls a creative outlet, a voice, and an opportunity to be surrounded by other creative people in an accepting environment. Writing and playing a song together brings a sense of accomplishment and leads to a sense of empowerment. It takes an act of bravery to get up on a stage!

IT’S NOT JUST MUSIC

During the week, girls also attend workshops that are designed to develop strong life-skills and to empower them as young women. These classes may include:

  • Print/Flyer Making

  • History of Women in Music

  • Button Making

  • Songwriting

  • Image and Identity

  • Team Building

  • Conflict resolution

Specific workshops that will be offered during camp will be listed here as we finalize instructors.
