Camper Applications for 2022 Spring ARC Are Now Closed

Join us for the Showcase at Clock-Out Lounge on Sunday, May 29th!

What is Adult Rock Camp and who is it for?


Rain City Rock Camp’s Adult Rock Camp (RCARC/ARC) is a multi-day camp that creates opportunities for adults of marginalized genders to find their inner power and rekindle their sense of joy using music as the tool. These opportunities also build our community of volunteers, mentors and activists that support Rain City Rock Camp’s youth programming. We believe it’s never too late to try something new, and we want
you to come join us, exactly as you are. No music experience required.

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 raise an army of Unapologetic Self-Love Warriors to spread the mission of RCRC, far and wide.

Black, Indigenous, People of Color and gender expansive individuals are strongly encouraged to apply!

We’re trying something new in 2022!

This year, ARC is all about DJ Crews! Each camper will join a 4-person DJ Crew and gain the skills and confidence to turn the party out!

  • DJ instruction with all gear provided as needed by RCRC
  • Engaging workshops on incredible topics that are both informative and creative
  • Try out DJing for the first time, or possibly level up your skills
  • Show off your crews skills  at our live showcase event!

How Much Does Adult Rock Camp Cost?

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have their voice heard. That’s why our tuition is on a sliding scale from $425 to $50. If you need assistance with payment options, please indicate on your application or email [email protected]. We appreciate your support in paying what you are able, and any amount over $425 is a tax-deductible donation that will continue to help us rock the world! Your support continues to make this experience accessible to all.

What Happens After I Apply for Adult Rock Camp?

You’ll hear back from us starting April 11th (and applications close on April 22nd). If you don’t initially get a spot in ARC, don’t worry. You’ll be immediately put on the waiting list and will hear from us if any spots become available. We’ll do our best to get you in!
