WHAT: If you wish that Girls Rock Camp existed when you were a kid, it's not too late! Ladies Rock Camp is a two-day musical adventure for women ages 18 and up. Campers attend instrument lessons, form bands, write songs together, participate in empowering workshops, and perform at a live showcase all in one weekend!
Not only is Ladies Rock Camp a thrilling and fun experience, but 100% of its proceeds support our youth programs. At Ladies Rock Camp, you are empowering the next generation of women while empowering and celebrating your peers. It is Girls Rock SB's mission to be accessible to all girls regardless of their families’ financial situations. We offer full and partial financial aid thanks to your Ladies Rock Camp tuition.
WHO: Ladies Rock Camp is for all women ages 18+. NO MUSICAL EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, and all skill levels are welcome. GRSB welcomes campers who identify as female, trans, and gender non-conforming. We provide instruments and all your meals for the entire weekend, so all you have to do is show up.

WHAT DO PAST PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT LADIES ROCK CAMP?
- "...Rock Camp was an all-around great experience and I'd do it again in a heartbeat."
- "Super fun. The whole weekend was such an amazing rockin' time."
"I have attended many workshops and inspiring retreats, and I can fully say this was the best one of them all. Thank you so much for working so hard on this...you are appreciated."
- "Wonderful staff and volunteers! Everyone was always in high spirits, very motivational, supportive, positive, encouraging, and loving all in one."
Instrument Instruction: Campers sign up to learn bass, drums, guitar, keyboards, or vocals and attend lessons in groups of three to five students. No musical experience is required, and campers are grouped by experience level. We provide instruments for everyone, but campers are welcome to bring their own guitar or bass.
Band Practice: Campers form bands with their peers on the first day of camp and work together to collaboratively write an original song. Each band works with a female mentor (their "band manager") who provides guidance, encouragement, and technical support throughout the songwriting process.
Workshops: Campers attend a different workshop each day, all geared toward self-expression and building confidence while challenging gender stereotypes and addressing discrimination. Workshops may include Music Herstory, Image & Identity, Songwriting, Self-Defense, Music Business, Live Sound, and more.
Fun Activities: Jam sessions, karaoke and open mics, and optional evening outings bring out our playful energy and motivate us throughout the weekend. We let loose, hang out, get to know each other, and have a raucous time!
Showcase: Sunday 2 pm
