FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why girls only?
In the short five days that is a Girls Rock Sacramento camp, girls can arrive every day feeling free from judgment or scrutiny. Our decision to create a safe, nurturing environment that is comprised of only girls follows models such as Girl Scouts, girls-only sports teams, and girls-only schools. This environment promotes creativity, freedom, and empowerment in a world where girls don’t always receive such unconditional and unbiased support.
Is it just music?
Girls Rock Sacramento is much more than a music education summer camp. We believe that creativity, positivity, and community are key elements of personal and collective empowerment and positive social change. A portion of the week is dedicated to workshops where campers can have age-appropriate facilitated discussions about topics affecting their daily lives, such as bullying, self defense, media literacy, and body image.
When is camp?
Girls Rock Sacramento will host at least one full (30-35 campers) week-long camp every summer, and also one or two “mini” (8-16 campers) week-long camps every summer. Full camp is M-F from 10am to 4pm with a concert on the weekend. Mini camps are M-F from either 10am to 1:30pm or 12:30pm to 4pm with concerts on the weekend.
