Q: Who is welcome to participate in Rain City Rock Camp for Girls programs?
A: All people who identify as female (cis or trans), trans, or gender non-conforming are welcome to be campers or volunteers in leadership positions.
Q: How is Rain City Rock Camp for Girls different from other rock camps/schools?
A: Rain City Rock Camp for Girls is not a rock school. We use music education as a tool to foster self-esteem, create community, and encourage social change. The enormous amount of community support given to participants at camp affords them a unique opportunity to express themselves in any way they wish. It’s not just about rock ‘n’ roll; it’s about all musical genres. And it’s not just about being a virtuoso; it’s about being an active agent in music culture and industry. We believe that by teaching these things, we can help our youth (and adults!) develop-musically, mentally, and emotionally-toward their own ideas of who and what they want to be.
Q: How can I help?
A: If you would like to volunteer during the week of Summer Camp, please sign up on our mailing list, and you will be informed when volunteer applications will be made available. Check out the list of volunteer positions here.
If you would like to volunteer time, skills, or resources to help us prepare for camp and other events throughout the year, please contact us and describe a few ways that your experience can help a new youth serving organization.
