Liner Notes

We strive to create a Girls Rock! DC community that reflects the diverse identities and experiences of our youth and the broader DC community. We strongly encourage people of color, people who are queer, gender non-binary, and/or trans, and any folks who come from traditionally oppressed experiences to apply to be We Rock! Camp campers. Everyone deserves to rock!

“Music has always been an important part of my life, but I had never played with anyone before. We Rock! Camp gave me the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and try something scary and exciting. Camp is a chance to be creative and feel supported. I loved the other people in my band, friends I wouldn’t have met without camp. We had so much fun that we still play music together, two years later!”
