Gainesville Girls Rock Camp
Gainesville Girls Rock Camp is week-long summer day camp that uses music and performance as a platform to encourage self-esteem, self-expression, and community for girls aged 9-17. During camp, girls receive music instruction by local women musicians and are placed into bands. Throughout the week, the girls also attend workshops aimed at enhancing their self-esteem such as women’s self-defense, poetry & lyric workshops, dance classes, art therapy, women’s history workshops, and guided group discussions about boundaries & consent. With the encouragement of their camp counselors, each band writes a song which they ultimately perform at a live music venue downtown at a public showcase following camp for their friends and families.
