Ladies Rock Camp is a weekend day camp designed for 21+ womxn (cis/trans/non-binary). It is a chance to let go, explore your potential, and play music within a supportive community. You don’t need any experience; we’ll provide you with everything from your instrument to your lunch! We believe that it is never too late to try something new, and we want YOU to come join us, exactly as you are. Just imagine, in one weekend you will:
- Learn an instrument
- Join a band
- Write a song
- Play a show
- Find community
NO musical experience is required! People of color and gender non-conforming individuals are encouraged to sign up. Tuition is sliding scale; contact [email protected] for information regarding payment plans and additional scholarship programs.
ALL INSTRUMENTS ARE CURRENTLY WAITLISTED. All additional applicants will be placed on the waitlist; waitlist notifications will be made as positions may become available. Please do not make a payment unless your enrollment has been confirmed!
Instrument assignments have been emailed to all accepted applicants.
Check out our cancellation policy.

Volunteer at LRC
We need lots of folks to help make Ladies Rock Camp an amazing experience for our campers, and we now have two kinds of volunteer opportunities!
LRC Teaching Artists are folks who teach instrument instruction, teach workshops, or coach a band. Because LRC has a limited number of openings for these positions, this is an application process, not a sign up. All people who identify as female (cis or trans), or gender non-conforming are welcome to be LRC Teaching Artists.
LRC Support Crew are folks who help set up, tear down, and run Ladies Rock Camp throughout the weekend. Everyone is welcome to sign up to be a part of this crew.
