What is Adult Rock Camp and who is it for?

Rain City Rock Camp’s Adult Rock Camp (ARC) is a multiple-day camp that creates opportunities for adults to find their inner power and rekindle their sense of joy using music as the tool. It also builds our community of volunteers, mentors and activists that support Rain City Rock Camp’s youth programming. This ARC will be in-person, and will continue to prioritize safety in this time of COVID-19. ARC is an opportunity for individuals* 20 and over to let loose for the weekend and experience music together.

ARC’s programmatic vision is to cultivate a community of passionate, creative, and socially engaged individuals who will serve as stewards, mentors and leaders in changing the world. We hope to foster a community of empowered creatives and activists to spread the mission of RCRC, far and wide.

*All adults of marginalized genders are welcome to be campers and/or volunteers in leadership positions at RCRC. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are highly encouraged to attend!
