Applications for our 2018 summer camp will be available on March 18th! We will post them here and on facebook!
Hi GGRC friends and volunteers!
We have just announced our 2018 Gainesville Girls Rock Camp dates, please mark your calendars and get in touch if you are interested in volunteering at camp this summer! Help us out by spreading the word to friends who might be interested in volunteering and let us know if you want to be on our 2018 volunteer email list (which will be sparingly used to let you know about upcoming GGRC volunteer opportunities!).
SESSION 1 (13-17 yr olds) June 4-9
SESSION 2 (9-13 yr olds) July 9-14
GGRC is a 501c3 nonprofit that uses music and performance as a platform to encourage self-esteem and self-expression in girls and non-binary youth aged 9-17. We are excited to be holding camp at a new music-focused art space located in the Grove Street community near downtown Gainesville this year. This new location will support our autonomy and offer opportunities to expand camp activities beyond our two weeks in summer!
You do not need musical experience to volunteer at camp! Our camp is staffed by women and non-binary volunteers. We need help in the kitchen, to assist in workshops, roadies to haul equipment and run errands, workshop instructors (poetry and lyricism, self-defense, healthy communication, album art, theater and stage antics, intersectional feminism, the science of sound, the math of music, the history of women in music, etc.!) We also need bass players, drummers, guitarists, keyboardists, sound engineers, and vocalists to help out in our music rooms and performers to showcase their music at our lunch concerts throughout camp!
In an effort to make camp volunteer participation more accessible to economically disadvantaged folks, we offer a limited number of volunteering stipends of $50-100. Volunteers can apply for this support if finances are a barrier to full-time participation in camp. We will prioritize trans women and women of color in granting these stipends.
Please email email@example.com if you’d like to join our 2018 volunteer email list!
Stay tuned for more details and information about spring events and fundraisers leading up to camp! We couldn’t do camp without you, thanks for your help!
