Amplify Sleep Away Camp is a music and creative arts camp for girls. We are located on the Ojai Valley Upper School Campus in Ojai, CA. 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. Our staff are recruited from all over the world and are world-class musicians and artists who enjoy spending a part of their summer giving back to youth through mentorship and instruction.

Summer Camp FAQ:

  • Do you provide lodging/meals on Saturday nights for campers enrolled more than one week of Amplify? Yes! Parents/Guardians can choose to have campers sleep on or off campus Saturday nights between sessions.
  • I’ve attended Amplify a couple times already. Can I sign up to be an intern? If you will be age 16-18 by July 1, and have at least two weeks of experience as an Amplify camper, you can apply for an unpaid internship. Please email girlsrocksb@gmail.com to see if interning at Amplify is a good fit for you.
  • What do campers do at Amplify? Amplify Sleep Away Camp is a unique overnight summer program (offered for five weeks during the summer) where girls 10-16 years old choose a creative arts track and learn technical, creative, and communication skills individually and with groups. Each day, campers attend group and private lessons, fun and creative workshops, enjoy free time, and hang out with new and old friends. Delicious and healthy meals accommodate various dietary restrictions. Lodging at two to three campers per dorm room is provided. More details for campers and their adults here.




Girls Rock SB is more than just a music camp!


Our mission is to empower girls through music education, creative expression, and performance, promoting an environment that fosters self-confidence, creativity, and teamwork.


Girls Rock Santa Barbara does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national and/or ethnic origin, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, or gender identity/expression in the administration of any of its educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid, and other camp-related policies and programs, as well as volunteer and employment related policies and activities.


We believe every girl should go to GRSB programs. We recognize and welcome all self-identified girls and non-binary conforming youth regardless of their ability, identity, and background. This means our campers, mentors and volunteers all come from different cultures and experience, with a common passion for our mission. If you feel you belong at Girls Rock Santa Barbara programs, you are welcome. Our programs are inclusive and exist to eliminate and reduce effects of discrimination against all girls. All of our female identified mentors have a number one goal to help our campers build self-esteem through music education, creation, performance, and life skills development workshops led by strong female mentors.
