Girls Rock Camp ATL 2017

Registration for GRCATL 2017 will open on April 3, 2017 at noon.

Girls Rock Camp ATL — July 10-15, 2017

ABOUT GIRLS ROCK CAMP:

GRCATL’s core program is a six-day summer camp for girls ages 10-16 (girls who are 17 and 18 may apply to be a Counselor in Training), now in its ninth year.

Campers are instructed in guitar, bass, keyboards, or drums, and participate in workshops geared toward encouraging freedom of expression, self-esteem, collaboration, and respect for community. Campers also form bands and perform in a big concert on the last day of camp. Campers are encouraged to bring their own instruments, however, if they do not have one, an instrument will be loaned to them for use during the week, free of charge.

Financial Aid opportunities are available. For more information, visit our Tuition Assistance page.

WHEN:

Girls Rock Camp 2017 will take place Monday, July 10, through Friday, July 14, from 9:00am to 5:00pm, at Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (Middle Campus). The final showcase will be held on Saturday, July 15 , at a location and time TBD.

WHERE:

Girls Rock Camp will be held at Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (Middle Campus) located at 820 Essie Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia 30316. The building is wheelchair accessible.

IMPORTANT:

PLEASE DO NOT call Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School for information about camp or the registration process and DO NOT SEND or DROP OFF any registration materials at ANCS.  Registration materials sent to or dropped off at ANCS will not be considered.

WHO MAY REGISTER FOR CAMP:

Any girl who will be between the ages of 10 and 16 during the camp session may register for camp. Girls 17 and 18 years old can apply to be a CIT (Counselor in Training) by completing the volunteer application on our volunteer page. No experience is necessary and you don’t have to live in Atlanta to register (please see below for more information about out-of-town campers). Note: girls must be 10 years old at the time of camp to attend.

TUITION:

Is on a self-reporting sliding scale between $375 and $525. Every Girls Rock Camp tuition is subsidized, even at the top of the scale. If you are able to pay more than $525 it will help to provide Girls Rock Camp opportunities for girls in need. Tuition includes five full days of camp plus showcase hours, all instrument lessons, workshops, workshop supplies, and afternoon snacks while at camp; a live performance by a visiting band each day of camp, camp t-shirt, camper backstage pass, and instrument loan (if needed).

FINANCIAL AID:

Every year, Girls Rock Camp ATL provides full and partial Financial Aid for many qualified applicants. If you are unable to pay along our sliding scale you may qualify for Financial Aid.

LUNCH:

Girls Rock Camp does not provide lunch for campers. Each camper needs to bring her lunch each day. However, if your camper needs free lunch at camp, please let us know and we will do our best to make arrangements for lunch to be provided.

INSTRUMENT INSTRUCTION:

Campers can choose to study guitar, bass, drums, or keyboards. Please select at least two instruments on the registration form. Remember, flexibility is a big part of the collaborative experience of Rock Camp. We do our best to accommodate campers’ choices, but instrument assignments are dependent on class size, ability to acquire needed gear, and even distribution of instruments throughout the camp. DON’T WORRY! Campers will still have a fun and rewarding experience no matter what instrument they are assigned! Due to the need to acquire gear in advance, a camper may not change instrument preferences once their registration form has been submitted or during the camp session.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS:

Instruments and one pair of earplugs may be provided for use during the camp week (campers can keep the earplugs). If your camper has their own guitar/amp, bass/amp, or keyboard/amp, PLEASE BRING IT. Don’t forget to label everything well! Please note that Girls Rock Camp does not accept liability for personal instruments.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY:

Girls Rock Camp ATL 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 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.
