Our Mission

Miami Girls Rock Camp is a camp that uses music and performance as a platform to promote self-esteem, community, and creative expression for girls and non-binary youth in Miami.

What We Do

Miami Girls Rock Camp is a week-long summer day camp program for girls and non-binary youth aged 8 to 17. The program offers instrument instruction, songwriting/band practice, live performances by visiting artists/DJs, workshops, and culminates in a showcase concert. Campers receive two hours of instruction each day on selected instruments (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals), in semi-private groups organized by skill level and age. All classes are taught by volunteer musicians. Campers do not need prior musical experience.

  • On the first day, campers form bands, and during daily band practice, campers write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches.

  • Every day of camp, we have a DJ/Band lunch hour, giving campers the opportunity to watch a live musical performance. After the DJ/Band finishes their set, campers have a Q&A with the artist.

  • Campers gain first-hand exposure to professional musicians through performances and workshops ranging on a variety of topics.

  • At the end of the camp week, camper bands perform their original songs at a showcase concert at a local music venue.

  • Prospective campers submit applications and a review committee forms a camper group that is diverse in age, income, race/ethnicity, and instrument.

  • The summer camp is entirely volunteer-powered.
