Our 5-day summer camp programming is geared toward girls, transgender, and gender non-conforming youth ages 11-17. Over 5 days, each student will:
- receive music lessons on one instrument (guitar, bass, drums, keys, or vocals.)
- form a band with their peers for the week (jam sessions will be guided by local female musicians!!!)
- attend fun and creative workshops about performance, song-writing, band promo and photoshoots, the NB music industry, and more!
- perform at a public showcase with their band for family and friends on the final day of camp.
The camp will teach new skills in music, or help build on existing ones in a supportive environment that promotes collaboration and self-exploration.
Our local volunteer musicians will teach one-on-one and in groups with students during instrument classes and band practice each day. All of our mentors have experience in singing and/or playing musical instruments as well as live performance.
Daily Class Structure
Students will be assigned to play one instrument for the week; they will take part in a group instrument lesson each day by breaking off into separate rooms based on their assigned instrument. They will also be divided up into a band of their peers for the week. Camp mentors will facilitate daily jam sessions each day and guide campers how to play, create music and perform together. Workshops, fun music-based activities, and live music performances will be scheduled throughout the day.
