Girls Rock! Canberra empowers girls, trans and gender diverse young people (ages 10-17 years) through a week-long program that encourages creativity, self-expression and teamwork through music and mentorship. Our Girls Rock! Camp program aims to provide a safe environment for girls, and trans and gender-diverse (TGD) young people to express their creativity, take pride in their accomplishments and learn not to apologise for making some noise.

Our next program will be in the Spring 2019 school holidays, 30 September – 5 October, at Ainslie Arts Centre, Braddon.

Mentor applications for our upcoming Spring session are now open. Camper and Intern applications will open in July.

We ran our first program in January 2016, and have run annually since at Ainslie Arts Centre, Braddon.

Canberra was the first Girls Rock Camp to be established in Australia, and is part of the national Girls Rock! Australia network.
