What is Ladies Rock Camp?

If you’ve ever wanted to be in a band, wanted to learn an instrument, improve the skills you already have, or if you like being creative with other women, then Ladies Rock Camp is for you. NO MUSICAL EXPERIENCE NECESSARY — just a desire to rock!

Ladies Rock Camp is Girls Rock Camp for women ages 19 and up, compressed into a 3-day weekend. Just like GRC, no musical experience is required. Campers receive instruction on bass, keyboard, guitar, drums or vocals, write a song with the guidance of our amazing staff and rock out on Sunday night to a room full of screaming fans.

In one exciting weekend, women ages 19 and older receive:

  • Instrument instructions
  • Songwriting lesson
  • Band practice
  • Workshops
  • All the hard work leads to a fun final showcase concert!

Tuition is $300 for Camp. Financial Aid is available! Use the code FINANCIALAID when registering for camp.

We offer guitar, bass, drum, keyboard and vocal instruction. All experience levels are welcome. Instruction is held in small groups and led by experienced, enthusiastic female musicians.

  • And More


On Sunday at 7 p.m. at a local venue, the bands perform their songs!
