Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls San Diego
Empowering Girls Through Music
We kick off each day in a rock star celebration with high energy, hilarious and empowering skits by our talented and dedicated mentors we call the “Skittles”. Then campers head to daily workshops that build skills that encourage self-expression. Examples of workshops are Songwriting, Self-Defense, Silk Screening T-shirts, “Her”story of Rock, Body Image & Identity, Media Literacy , Drum Circle, Community Impact, Zine Making, and more!
At lunchtime, local bands join the campers for music and inspiration. To strengthen visibility of female artists on a variety of instruments, we require bands be female-majority in make-up. The campers just might even see their own band coach rockin' out!

Campers choose an instrument to play: vocals, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, or drums. They receive instruction from experienced female mentors daily. We provide the instruments or bring your own electric guitar, electric bass guitar or electric keyboard (upon approval).
Campers form a new band the first day and begin working together to name the band, make a logo for their band, write an original song together, and rock out! They are mentored by band coaching teams of inspirational female musicians and singer-songwriters.
While our programming is guided by the experiences of girls 8 to 17 years of age, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports and welcomes a wide range of gender identities and expressions. We welcome girls, trans, and gender nonconforming participants. There is no musical experience necessary.

Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego is a weeklong day camp where girls ages 8-17 use music as a powerful way to communicate and collaborate while being guided by inspirational female mentors. In one week, campers form bands, write an original song, learn an instrument and perform live. They will also have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops with topics related to being an empowered rocker!
Camp application for instrument preference is first come, first served. If your particular instrument is full, we will attempt to place you in your second or third choice or on the waiting list for your first.
Their first gig!!! The campers get to perform their original songs in front of family, friends and the community at House of Blues San Diego. Tickets are $10.00 for General Admission at the door. Campers do not require a ticket for admission.
In order for every camper to have the greatest experience it is important that they attend everyday from 9am-5pm.
Remember… your new band needs you to help them ROCK!
