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.

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....

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.

I volunteered for the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp. I flew in specifically from Chicago to work with the group for the week. I only have all around positive things to say about the people running the camp and the camp itself. I have been doing a variety of volunteer work all my life and they are by far the most organized group I have encountered. From the application process as a volunteer, to the before and after meetings as the week went by, even till now when I get emails about what's going on with the group. It's just a really good group to be involved with in any way shape or form.

Not only did I teach, but I learned as well with the students and other volunteers there. It's a wonderful camp and a great opportunity for all.

If I had to make changes to the organization, I would love for them to grow in the sense of having more students to teach and more volunteers to help.

I have volunteered with BAGRC for three years now and I'm hooked! The organizations seeks to empower girls through music, and succeeds at that plus empowering volunteers through volunteering. It's pretty powerful to be in a room with all of these bright, talented, thoughtful women and allies. I would strongly suggest you volunteer for BAGRC if you have ever been a musician, or spent time wishing you were a musician. It will change your life!

my own confidence and youth development skills. Also, it looks good on youth work job applications.

make it a sleep-away camp so we could all hang out for longer?

This is the best, most amazing organization ever!! I was only involved for one summer a few years back but I wholeheartedly recommend this camp to anyone who is between the age of 8 and 18 for a truly revolutionary, self-esteem building, empowering experience. I think every girl in the world should get to participate in something like this, the world would truly be a better, safer, and more positive place for everyone. I also recommend volunteering and participating in their summer, after-school, and lady's rock camp programs! All amazing and wonderful experiences.

The Great!

Seeing the amazing impact it had on the girls in the band I coached in just 1 week! They were holding their heads up higher and processing things in really different and thoughtful ways, they were supporting each other, and best of all they were ready to take this experience beyond the week and out into their lives.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make the volunteer group more diverse and inclusive of women from different subcultural groups, music preferences, and life experiences just to add to the experience for the girls who get to participate and so they know that there are a million ways to rock out! I'd also give them a million dollars in the hopes that it would enable many more young women to experience this!
