June HIP HOP CAMP CANCELLED:
We are so bummed to report the cancelation of our June Hip Hop Camp due to low registration. We did not make this decision lightly but wanted to make the decision in a timely manner to ensure our volunteers and the space we were using would have time to plan accordingly. We are so bummed and we can imagine anyone who had wanted to sign up, but hadn't yet, are much more bummed. We apologize.
We want to let you know that if you were interested in the Hip Hop specific camp that we will have hip hop programming available through out our July/August camp (sign up above).
We would also like to remind everyone that the "Rock" in our name, and the camp name, stems from the origins of Girls Rock Camps but is not a limit on the explorations of musical styles at our camps. We have instructors with various musical backgrounds and continually seek to increase the instrument and workshops we offer.
This year at our July/August camp we will have rock, hip hop, and electronic music instruction, workshops, and programming. The genres of the bands created are completely up to the interest of the kids in the bands. We look forward to continually evolving our scope of music instrumentation we offer and thus the kids' abilities to express themselves through whatever genres and sounds they are interested in.
We also want to say that we are 100% committed to trying again in the future to have dedicated hip hop focused programming and we will let you know of our new plans as they are finalized. We have great hip hop artists in this town that we are extremely excited to work with at our July/August camp, as well as in the future.
