I love Girls Rock Camp. Seriously. There aren’t enough woman playing in rock bands and some of that stems from the idea that only boys can play guitar. Or bass. Or drums. And here’s Girls Rock Camp, swooping in to help girls build up their confidence in both music and life.
The 2011 Girls Rock Camp ATH camp week will take place Monday, July 25th through Friday, July 29th at the Boys and Girls Club located at 705 Fourth Street in Athens. The Showcase will be on Saturday, July 30th at the 40 Watt.
Camp for the Girls costs $25 dollars to register and $300 for the camp. As you can imagine, not all families that want to send their daughters can afford such a cost. The camp offers scholarships but can only offer as many as they have the budget for. So if you’ve got some spare change, consider sending some their way. You can donate here. If you’re a little short on cash, consider lending your time as an instructor. Either way, you’ll help fuel the next generation of awesome musicians. ROCK ON!
