This super popular and, honestly, really cool camp experience is on the calendar for summer 2023 and registration is now open. It’s happening at Parkland College, the week of July 24-28, and it will fill up fast. It’s meant for girls, and kids and teens who are transgender or gender nonconforming, from ages 8 to 18. From the program description:

Get ready to jam with the best. Girls Rock! C-U is an exciting and safe place for you to explore the musical, technical, and creative aspects of being a musician. Individual music lessons and playing in a band are all parts of this camp experience, as well as learning to team-build, communicate with peers, and comfortably express yourself. You will help form a band, write and record your own music, and play a gig in a real music venue. No music experience is necessary; beginning and intermediate levels are welcome.

There will be a Girls Rock Fest on July 29th at Rose Bowl Tavern to showcase the work the kids do during the week.

You can find more info on the Girls Rock C-U Facebook page.
