Mentor applications for our Spring Session of our Girls Rock! Camp program are now open.🌻
Our Girls Rock! Camp is a music and mentorship program for girls, trans and non-binary youth aged 10-17. Over the course of camp, the participants (campers) will learn an instrument, form a band, and take part in a range of creative and capacity building workshops. Bands are usually a group of 3-5 young people, and each can learn an instrument of their choosing. The available instruments are:
- Electric guitar
- Electronic music
At the end of the week, the bands perform for family and friends at the end-of-camp showcase.
Each band has two mentors allocated to them: a band coach and a band manager. Girls Rock Canberra also allocates two instrument instructors for the skill development sessions (as per the instruments listed above). Our mentors are integral to providing a safe and dynamic environment for our campers and encouraging them to express their creativity while learning not to apologise for who they are.
This year’s camp will take place 30 September – 4 October Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, at Ainslie Arts Centre in Braddon. Our end of camp showcase takes place on Saturday 5 October All mentors will be expected to attend the mentor Orientation day on Sunday 2 (afternoon – time TBC).
