Rock N’ Roll Camp For Girls San Diego Presents Annual Camper Showcase

Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego, a nonprofit organization that brings the community together to empower girls through music, will host its fourth annual camper showcase at the House of Blues San Diego following a summer empowerment camp for girls ages 8 to 17.

Rock N’ Roll Camp For Girls

Empowering youth campers through music education

At the week-long program, the girls engage in workshops and activities guided by inspirational female mentors and culminate the week with a final performance. Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego aims to empower young campers through music education and promotes an environment where girls build skills that encourage self-confidence, uniqueness, creativity and teamwork.

“We are very proud to announce that this year’s Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls is almost full! Our impactful program is all about empowering young girls through the power of music and self-expression. Not only do we aim to inspire the campers, we create a safe outlet for girls to embrace their uniqueness, build strong friendships and lift each other up!” said Melissa Grove, founder and president of Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego.

“Our camp goes beyond music education; we shape the future leaders of our community through creative youth development and skill building activities.”

Learn an instrument, write and perform original songs

In one week, the girls form bands, collaborate to write an original song, learn an instrument (they can choose from vocals, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards or drums) and perform an original song live in front of their family, friends and the community at the House of Blues San Diego. To promote new friendships and collaboration, this year campers will choose their bandmates by drawing names from a hat.

Camp kicks off each day at 9 a.m. in a rock star celebration, with a high-energy assembly that includes hilarious yet educational skits performed by camp mentors. Throughout the day, young campers are divided into age groups and break out into music instruction, workshops and band practice.

A visit from our local artists

During lunch time local artists from music, dance and visual art backgrounds are invited to inspire the girls and share their experience working in the music industry. Workshops consist of necessary band-building talents like designing and screen-printing band t-shirts and songwriting, as well as other skills like, image and identity, making a difference in your community and more.
