Girls choose between learning an instrument, forming a band, and writing an original song, photography and film making or journalism. In addition to their specific concentrations, we have several daily "camp" activities to choose from such as: Rock Climbing, Swimming, Zip Lining, Screen Printing, Music Video Making, Karaoke, Movie Nights, Private Music Lessons, DJ-ing, and more. Every day at lunch a Special Guest artist takes the stage and performs for our camp followed by a camper lead question and answer period.
