GRA THANKS YOU!
WE WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT
Girls Rock would like to thank the many local restaurants that helped provide meals during camp including: Ted's Most Best, 1000 Face's Coffee, Tazik's, Automatic Pizza, Heirloom, The Grit, Viva! Argentina, and of course Hendershots Coffee who let us host our camp showcase. We were also very fortunate to have many adult and junior volunteers to help run the camp and encourage our campers throughout the week. Girls Rock is grateful to be surrounded by a community who invests time and money into this organization.
GIRLS ROCK CAMP RECAP
This year, we had 16 campers which developed into four bands known as Personal Computer (pictured), The Black Stars, Savage Squad, and The Verge. Throughout the week, their goal was to write and eventually perform their own songs. They also were responsible for creating their own band logos and merchandise.
Campers were instructed in a variety of different areas including: drums, guitars, bass, keys, rap, and, for the first time, a hip-hop dance workshop from VIP Girlz. Other workshops included zine-making, body image & media literacy, punk rock aerobics, poetry, vocals, and Herstory of Women Who Rock and Rap.
With the help of Joel Hatstat, each band was able to record their songs in a professional studio.
Emily Rose is 18 years old from Athens, Georgia. She went from being a Girls Rock camper herself, to a junior volunteer, to writing blogs for Girls Rock Athens. She attends Mercer University and is double majoring in Journalism and Law & Public Policy on a pre-law track. She is a writer, musician, activist, and feminist who hopes to use her platforms to inspire positive change by providing different perspectives on the world’s political and social issues. Emily is determined to make a difference. I think we can all agree she'll do just that.
