SUMMER DAY CAMPS
GRNC’s day camp is a one-week music and empowerment program for Triangle-area girls, trans youth, and gender-nonconforming youth, ages 7-16. Campers are instructed in an instrument of their choice, form bands, and write original music with their peers.
Between band practices and instrument instruction, campers attend workshops such as songwriting, self defense, D.I.Y. clothes, zine making, deejaying, body confidence and media literacy, improv, bike repair, visionary futurism, music herstory, and more!
Throughout the week, campers are mentored in an empowering all-female, trans, and gender-nonconforming 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.
Our two camp locations during summer 2017 are Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF) & Saint Mary's School.
This year, all camper drop-off is from 8:30–8:50am.
The camp day will run from 8:50am–4:50pm, with pick-up from 4:50–5pm.
Our aftercare option extends the day until 6pm for a nominal fee.
We offer full and partial financial assistance for qualifying campers! You may request assistance on the registration form.
No musical experience or instruments are necessary to participate in camp!
