Girls Rock VT
Girls Rock Vermont is a week long day camp held during the summer that offers girls and non-binary youth, ages 6-18, the opportunity to form a band, write an original song, and perform at a local live music venue at the end of the week showcase. The girls also participate in various workshops throughout the week including songwriting, vocals, consent and boundaries, t-shirt deconstruction and stage presence.
Campers receive instrument instruction each day in small groups organized by skill level and age. On the first day, campers form bands, and during daily band practice, campers write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. At the end of the week, bands perform their original song at a final showcase. Workshops, classes, and band practice are led by teams of dedicated volunteers. We strive for camp to be a week that is super fun and meaningful for campers from a variety of identities, perspectives, and experiences.
This year we are offering 3 different kinds of sessions in 3 weeks!
The July and August weeks will be our traditional 6 day camps 9-5 Monday through Friday with the Showcase on Saturday from 11-2. These camps are offered to any camper aged 8-16.
Jumpstart Vermont (half day camp 9-noon, with showcase on Friday evening)
For the first time we are offering a Jumpstart Vermont! The same Girls Rock fun with a lunchtime showcase on Friday right at Rock Point School. The younger rockers will be able to explore instruments and collaborate with bandmates to write an original song.
Jumpstart is a summer camp for girls (transgender or cisgender) and/or gender non-binary youth from ages 6 – 8. Based on the organization’s popular program for older kids, Jumpstart Vermont gives campers the opportunity to write their own music and experiment with sound and movement through a wide variety of fun activities.
