GRNC’s Rock and Roll Day Camp is a one-week music program for Triangle area girls, trans, and gender non-conforming kids ages 7-16. Campers are instructed in an instrument of their choice, form bands, and write original music with their peers. Between band practices, campers attend workshops such as songwriting, self defense, D.I.Y., zine making, deejaying, body confidence, and more! Throughout the week, campers are mentored in an empowering all-female, trans and gender non-conforming environment by seasoned musicians, educators, and activists. The week concludes with a huge concert showcasing the original music of each of the bands at a local venue.

No musical background or instruments necessary to participate in GRNC Rock Camp! We offer full and partial scholarships for qualifying campers! Have a question about summer camp? Please check out our F.A.Q. If you don’t find the information you need, email us:
