Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower girls of all backgrounds through music education and performance. We are dedicated to creating a positive environment that builds girls’ self-esteem and fosters leadership, life-skills development, and independent thinking while cultivating a supportive community of peers and mentors that demonstrate it’s ok to be who you are!

Description

Girls Rock Milwaukee is a summer day camp for girls aged 8-16.

At camp girls will form a band, learn to play an instrument, write a song and at the end of the week perform in a rock and roll showcase at a local venue. The objective of the camp is to give girls a creative outlet, a voice, and an opportunity to be surrounded by other creative people in an accepting environment. Writing and playing a song together brings a sense of accomplishment and leads to a sense of empowerment. It takes an act of bravery to get up on a stage!

During the week girls also attend workshops that are designed to develop strong life-skills and to empower them as young women. These classes may include:

  • Kickboxing/Self Defense
  • Print/Flyer Making
  • History of Women in Music
  • Button Making
  • Songwriting
  • Image and Identity
  • Team Building
  • Conflict resolution
