Rain City Rock Camp is the only nonprofit in the Seattle area that combines music education, gender-responsive programming and a commitment to positive social change. 

We center and support youth and adults of marginalized genders, both in the content of our programming and in the identities of the mentors who are a part of our community. Our programs address holistic aspects of positive development—like building self esteem and encouraging self expression—while offering strengths-based, collaborative music learning.

Participants in our programs receive instrument instruction from local musicians and write, rehearse and perform original songs with the support of mentors. They examine the music industry through a social justice lens, discuss media impact on self-image, learn how to set boundaries, explore basic self-defense tactics, and practice body positivity, teamwork and problem solving. 

And they do it all while ROCKING OUT in a supportive, empowering community!
