We believe girls should be seen AND heard!! 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 2014!!

Why only girls? Statistics show that women are underrepresented in the music and media industries. So for a few events year we will bring together young women with adult women mentors for a unique experience of music collaboration and exploration of pertinent topics about 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. We share resources and ideas with other camps, but we make leadership choices for our camps based on what is needed in our Alaskan communities. 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 formed this organization on January 12th, 2014 and registered 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 GRC Conference in March and we had a fundraiser concert at UAA. A successful Kickstarter campaign was funded in April, 2014. We held our first camp June, 2014 in Anchorage and accepted 20 campers. We had an incredible experience that week and the campers are still talking about it! We held our second camp in June, 2015 with 30 campers and we are starting year round programming in Fall of 2015!

Rock Camps around Ak!
We would love to see Girls Rock Camp Alaska expand to many other Alaskan communities, either with week-long summer day camps or weekend workshops throughout the school year. If you are interested in seeing a music empowerment camp like this in your community, please contact us and we can discuss the resources needed to make that happen!
