Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls is a non-profit music and mentoring program with a focus on social justice and building community through creative collaboration. 

We are seeking volunteers for Girls Rock Camp, Ladies Rock Camp, and Rock Camp Jumpstart! 

Girls Rock! Camp (GR!C) - July 29th-August 4th, August 12th-18th 

Girls Rock! Camp is a week-long summer day camp program for girls, gender non-binary youth, and trans youth ages 8 to 18. The program offers instrument instruction, workshops, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists, and culminates in a showcase concert. There are 2 sessions of Girls Rock! Camp. 

Rock Camp Jumpstart (RCJ) - July 15th-20th

Rock Camp Jumpstart is a summer camp for girls, gender non-binary youth and trans youth ages 5 - 7. Rock Camp Jumpstart gives younger campers the opportunity to write their own music and experiment with sound and movement through a wide variety of fun activities. 

Ladies* Rock Camp (LRC) - October 2018

Ladies Rock Camp is an intensive, three-day music and social justice program for adult women (trans or cis), gender non-binary folks, and trans folks. It's the "grown-up" version of Girls Rock! Camp.

All camps will be held in Upper Manhattan this year.

Volunteers are the heart of Rock Camp - the program literally could not happen without you! 

We welcome volunteers of all genders, and prioritize leadership by women and non binary individuals. We are seeking volunteers who are excited about the mission of the organization and giving girls and gender non binary youth a chance to build confidence through rocking out. No experience with music necessary. Full time or part time roles available. We take good care of our volunteers and provide lunch each day, and ensure that those who need it receive Metrocards. Limited stipends are available if needed. Whether you'd like to teach an instrument, help out as a counselor, lead assemblies, or work behind the scenes on our kitchen or roadie team, WE WANT YOUR HELP!

Campers at Willie Mae Rock Camp come from a wide range of economic experiences, ethnic identities, gender identities, & boroughs, and more than half self-identify as youth of color. We strive to create a volunteer base that reflects this diversity, and strongly encourage people of color, people who are gender non-binary and/or trans, and any folks who come from traditionally oppressed experiences to become volunteers and mentors at Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls. We ALL need role models.

Please note that volunteers must be at least 19 years old at the time of camp.

Volunteering at Camp is an incredibly nourishing and FUN experience, and our amazing volunteer base includes a diverse group of musicians, artists, and activists all working towards a better world for our campers and each other.
