In partnership with The Majestic Theatre, Girls Rock Detroit is proud to present our largest camp showcase yet, featuring 4 DJs and 9 bands of young women ages 8-15, who have created an unforgettable, original performance in just 5 days! At Girls Rock Detroit summer day camp, girls work within a positive, encouraging and noncompetitive environment in which they can learn to play, write and collaborate with their peers, mentored by awesome female and non-binary role models. The showcase concert is an uplifting, joyous and inspiring culmination of what happens when music, creativity and teamwork intersect. Join our community in celebrating how much girls rock! All proceeds from the showcase benefit Girls Rock Detroit programming."
Girls Rock Detroit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering creative expression, self-esteem and community engagement through music education and performance. We believe it is crucial that girls have access to equipment and instruction regardless of their socio-economic background, race or ethnicity. Camp tuition is offered on a sliding scale ($0-200) and we provide all instruments and equipment at camp. GRD is a mainly volunteer-run organization where girls are mentored by positive female role models who are active in their communities.
A member of the national Girls Rock Camp Alliance, GRD is quickly growing and gaining momentum, being featured on local print and digital media, as well as NPR Michigan Radio. We have presented two successful week-long day camps since the inception of the organization in 2014, piloted an instrument loan program in September 2016, and plan to expand to an after-school enrichment program by 2020. Girls Rock Detroit is a recipient of the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs 2017 New Leaders Grant.
