I bought a CD from someone in front of the Berkeley Bowl who claimed to represent this group - the Bay Area Girls' Rock Camp. Included with the CD were promotional materials for the Women's Rock Camp sponsored by this organization. When I got the CD home, and put it in my computer to listen, it was blank! My level of trust in this organization is zero!

BAGRC is an amazing organization with smart, dedicated, and responsive staff and volunteers. It's difficult to convey how amazing the program is: you need to attend a showcase of camper bands to understand the full impact of the program!

Girls Rock is the only organization of its kind in the Bay Area. If you are looking for a life-changing experience for your girl, Bay Area Girls Rock Camp will deliver. And if you invite your friends and family to see your daughter perform, their lives will be changed too. To witness the amazing joy, confidence, courage and talent of these girls is to see the future... a better future where more women are leaders and change makers. Rock Camp can really do that? Yes it can!

BAGRC is an exceptional program that empowers girls and women to speak up, think critically, and express themselves through music production and collaboration in bands. Throughout camp, girls learn about image versus identity, self defense, media analysis, and how to create a strong message through songwriting. As a band, girls learn to perform to a large audience amplified on stage, one of the biggest highlights of camp that recognizes and validates the expression of young women.

Find a way to get more girls to camp and increase the capacity of the organization.

My 9 year old daughter participated in a BAGRC program this summer and it was amazing for her on so many levels. Her musical ability on drums exploded! She gained tremendous musical confidence, and is comfortable playing with different people in a variety of settings. She writes songs now, and it's a way for her to express feelings ranging from frustration to joy. She learned how to productively deal with conflict and create art in a team environment. She has struggled in the past to fit in, and now she seems so much more comfortable with herself.

This is just an incredible program for girls. It arms them with so many tools as they enter a difficult phase of life. If you cannot afford it, there is financial aid.

I wish there was a program in San Jose. We are traveling to Oakland from the South Bay, so it's a bit of a grind.

My daughter has been to Girls Rock Camp the last 2 years. She loves it.
Ok, so it sometimes seems a tad disorganized but somehow it all comes together & it's amazing!
I know she wants to go back for sure!
Next year she is hoping to be a mentor.

Bay Area Girls Rock is an amazing and unique non-profit located in Oakland. In the course of a week most girls learn an instrument, form a band, write a song and then record it and perform. That alone would be impressive, but it's the self esteem building, community creation and overall positive influence that is truly awe inspiring.

The Great!

Participating in a week of camp as a volunteer and attending almost every showcase.

I would offer the camp every summer and have more resources year round for the girls

Girls rock camp is one of the hippest, most inspiring non-profits aimed towards social equity in the Bay Area. The staff and board are fully committed to listening to the needs of parents and campers. The volunteers are highly experienced musicians and educators. Girls are proven to have increased confidence after leaving rock camp!

Staff, volunteers and campers all unite to create an incredible atmosphere. Rock Camp is about empowerment, but it's also about dealing with conflict and growing from it. I have had the pleasure of being involved with Rock camp since 2003 when I volunteered at the original Portland camp. Since then it is growing and we are so lucky to be a part of it.

The Great!

Watching the baton get passed down to other volunteers and giving them a chance to take on leadership positions.

Get more funding to create more financial aid opportunities.

I have been working with the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp since it kicked off three years ago. I have had the privilege of watching campers discover their own strong voices, unique selves, and that they are not alone in this world. It has been fun watching friendships form,and experiencing the joy of seeing the positive impact Girls Rock Camp has had on the lives of returning and former campers. They navigate this challenging world with remarkable confidence , dignity, respect, and care. I am constantly in awe of the ways the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp continues to positively impact so many lives and communities-- including mine.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing returning campers walking taller in the word, with more confidence, a stronger voice, an ability to feel good about saying no and saying yes to situations they must navigate, watching volunteers experience profound boosts in their own confidence levels and desire to strengthen the positive aspects of their communities and bonds with the women in them. This list goes on and on....

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it even more funding and, following the requests of so many campers, create a sleepaway session.
