Program Descriptions


1. Girls Rock Camp Radio

 

A group of 10-20 girls will meet weekly for 10 weeks to discuss current topics in the music industry and to learn how to create podcasts with interviews and discussions about music composition, music distribution, equality in the music industry, and empowerment through music. This will have classroom based instruction with some small-group discussions and requires very little gear/equipment and minimal staff.

 

2. New Genre Camp/Workshop

 

A group of 15-25 kids/parents will meet for one full workshop day on a weekend during the school year to learn about a unique genre of music presented by expert guest performers from our community. This would be an annual program that features a different genre each year. It will have group based instruction with hands-on experiences with various instruments provided by GRCA and the guest performers. It is a short, light hearted way for families to be exposed to the kinds of things we do and talk about. It will include discussions about empowerment through music.

 

3. Rock Camp for Boys

 

A group of 10-20 boys will meet for two days on a weekend during the school year for a minicamp version of our summer camp. It will include discussions about music composition, equality in the music industry, and empowerment through music. There will be original songs written by the campers in large group settings and an informal performance at the end of the weekend. We will show excerpts from two documentaries that help empower boys and enhance equality for everyone.

4. Adult Rock Camp Fundraisers

 

A group of 4-10 adults can collectively arrange a place for a half day workshop (pending GRCA availability) and they can have a living room mini-camp that serves GRCA as a fundraiser for future tuition waivers and camper supplies. This will be a hands-on workshop led by adult volunteers. Everyone will get a chance to have a group instrument lesson and try out each of the rock band instruments and participate in writing a group song. It will include discussions about music composition, equality in the music industry, and empowerment through music. There will be no formal performance, but they could invite family members to listen to their song at the end of the day.
