What We Do
Meet Our Team
Girl’s Rock Camp Calgary (GRCC) is a non-profit group that invites girls between the ages of 11 and 17, of all backgrounds and abilities to engage with each other through musical education and performance, in a positive female-centric environment. Camp is being held August 21-26, 2017. We will be at the University of Calgary Aug 21-24 from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm, and at OCL Studios on August 25 from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm. Our Showcase will be on Aug 26 at the Ship and Anchor pub (yes, it's all ages!)
Camp is run entirely by volunteers! We need a dedicated team of musicians and non-musicians alike to make our program happen; time commitment varies by role. Volunteering is open to any person who is committed to showing up and providing a safe and supportive environment for our campers. Preference for manager/mentor/coach positions will be given to cisgender or transgender women, in line with our mission to provide our program in a positive female-centric environment.
We will have an orientation session for volunteers on August 1st in the evening. Location to be confirmed. It is strongly recommended that all volunteers attend, however it is not required for those only teaching a workshop.
