Girls rock

July 5th, 2006     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

In the very first issue of Shameless, Lisa Weaver wrote about The Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, Oregon (“Get Ready to Rock”), the absolute coolest summer camp I have ever heard of.

A few more camps have popped up in the US, and there’s a great feature on girls rock camps in Wiretap. It mentions that there’s a similar camp in Canada. Could it be true?! Has anyone heard about this?

I love that these camps give girls an outlet for creative expression, a sense of community and a chance to rock a mic (or guitar, or drums) without feeling self-conscious. Rock on, girls.
