How COVID-19 affects us:
Our camp is largely volunteer-run by members of our community – many of whom are artists, entertainers, teachers, and service industry workers being impacted economically during this time. We encourage you to send your support directly to those marginalized and impacted in our community.
We as an organization stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and work to dismantle systems of oppression.
About Gainesville Girls Rock Camp:
Mission Statement: Gainesville Girls Rock Camp is a non-profit that uses music and performance to uplift marginalized voices, encourage self-esteem, community, and self-expression in girls and gender-expansive youth.
GGRC usually functions as a week-long summer day camp that accepts regional youth aged 10-17 years old. Campers are taught to play an instrument and are placed into bands. With the encouragement of their camp counselors, each band writes a song which they ultimately perform at a live music venue downtown at a public showcase following camp for their friends and families.
Gainesville Girls Rock Camp is an actively anti-racist, LGBTQ+ organization. Any racist, transphobic, xenophobic, ableism, and/or homophobic statements will not be tolerated in our space. We hold ourselves, staff, board, and volunteer base to a high standard of excellent model behavior.
As an organization we offer full or partial scholarships to campers and families who need financial assistance.
Gainesville Girls Rock Camp is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization staffed by women and gender-expansive volunteers. We value diversity in age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. We promote respect and actively work to dismantle racism, sexism, homophobia, and other discriminatory behaviors and expressions. We are a member of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance and align our values with the GRCA Points of Unity.
