We believe girls should be seen AND heard!! This is our inaugural year and Girls Rock Camp Alaska is excited to create an environment for girls of all backgrounds and abilities by using music as a medium to encourage creativity, collaboration, and individuality. We are a registered business and charity with the state of Alaska and our status as a 501(c)(3) federal non-profit corporation was approved in June, 2014!!

Why only girls? Statistics show that women are underrepresented in the music and media industries. So for one week a year we will bring together a group of young women with some adult women for a unique experience with music and discuss topics pertinent to this issue. We support the anti-bullying movement and gender equality for everyone on the gender spectrum.

Girls Rock Camp Alaska values diversity of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. We promote respect and do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, or other discriminatory behavior or expression.

We are an independent entity, but we are proudly associated with the International Girls Rock Camp Alliance and were accepted as members of the organization after our first successful camp in 2014. We attended the 2014 International Conference and we owe a debt of gratitude to both the Alliance and especially to Rain City Rock Camp in Seattle for all the help they've given us so far! You Rock!
We are a board of directors that believes in the kids in our community! We got together on January 12th, 2014 to start a Girls Rock Camp in Alaska and we registered the organization as a charity in the State of Alaska while we waited for our Federal non-profit status to be approved! Our Director attended the International Conference in March and we had a fundraiser concert at UAA. A successful Kickstarter campaign was funded in April. We held our first camp June 2-7, 2014 at Pacific Northern Academy in Anchorage and accepted 20 campers. We had an incredible experience that week and the campers are still talking about it!
