PunkTorah has teamed up with Girls Rock Camp Atlanta to provide one lucky Jewish girl with the opportunity to go to summer day camp for wanna-be rockers! Learn an instrument, gain self esteem, meet other girls your age and get some serious mentorship from women in the music industry.
Experience the thrill of learning to play a loud instrument, forming your own band, writing your own music and lyrics, and performing in a live rock concert!
Girls Rock Camp ATL
For girls ages 10 – 16 (at the time of camp)
Monday, July 11 – Friday, July 15, 9:00a – 5:30p at Atlanta Charter Middle School
Saturday, July 16 Camper Showcase, time and location TBD
Campers choose to study guitar, bass, drums, or keyboards at camp, plus other performance, creative, empowerment, image, and identity workshops will be offered.
A girl does not have to have any prior musical experience, nor does she have to have her own instrument…if she doesn’t have her own instrument the camp will loan her one to use for the week.
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a message about why your daughter/granddaughter/niece/neighbor/whatever should get a chance to go to Girls Rock Camp! Some things to think about…
Does the girl demonstrate need, financial and/or otherwise?
Would the girl enjoy the experience? Not sure, ask her.
Girls Rock Camp ATL prioritizes empowerment and collaboration, has she shown she respects others?
Will transportation to and from our locations be a problem?
Lunch is pack your own but we may provide for girls in need, keep in mind we’re not a kosher camp.
Will our camp days and hours conflict with her religious and other commitments?
Will rock and roll, self/creative expression, and inclusion themes threaten/interfere with her comfort?
The final entry will be chosen at random on Monday, May 9th at 2PM EST.
ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MONDAY, MAY 9TH AT 1PM EST.
This contest is open to any self-identifying Jewish girl in the metro Atlanta area regardless of synagogue membership, Jewish background or history, etc. Relatives of PunkTorah employees or board members may not enter.
