What is G.R.R.R?
Celebrating our twelfth year in 2018, this annual day camp (9am-5pm daily) offers 5 days of music lessons, playing in a band, art classes, exciting workshops and a big Friday night rock concert for girls, trans and gender nonconforming youth ages 8-16 (and this year we'll also have a teen session for ages 13-18!). Our camp is offered to participants who play or want to learn electric guitar, electric bass, drums, vocals or keyboards. We accept campers of all levels on each instrument, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, more details here!
Camp is five days and is loaded with workshops including songwriting, media literacy, gender studies, activism, body confidence, self-defense, stage presence, band art and of course instrument and band practice. For campers with lots of prior musical experience, we will be offering additional workshops and advanced songwriting classes this year! Our teachers are all professional musicians from right here in the Twin Cities music scene. At the end of five days, our campers will have: formed a band, written original music, created logos and merchandise for their band, improved their instrumental skills and will perform TWO concerts for friends and family on Friday night!
Girls Rock n Roll Retreat is brought to you by She Rock She Rock, a non-profit 501c3 organization and is a proud member of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance, an international coalition of girl's rock camps!
*While we are hosting two weeks of camp at HAUM Church, we are a secular organization. Please see FAQ for more information.
