We Need Your Support Today

Last year we asked you to Give Big because we believe the work Rain City Rock Camp is doing to empower womxn, girls (cis and trans) and gender expansive folks through music is essential. This year the world looks a lot different, but we’re asking you to Give Big again, if you can, because our work is more important now than ever.

Give Big to Rain City Rock Camp!

RCRC’s programs create a safe space for campers to express themselves freely through music and to connect with peers and mentors who are fearlessly authentic as well. Our camps are more than music camps. Don’t get us wrong—we rock all the way out! But, even more important, we build a supportive, empowering community where participants discuss media impact on self-image, learn how to set boundaries, explore basic self-defense tactics, and practice body positivity, teamwork and problem solving. The experience has a lasting impact on campers’ lives.

Rock Camp has been one of the biggest parts of my life for as long as I can really remember, no exaggeration. ... I don't think anyone could really ever truly know how important this camp was to me, especially as a queer teen—and a neurodivergent one! I met a lot of people like me, and a LOT more people unlike me, and they made me realize the type of person I really wanted to be and the things I really wanted to put out in the world. ... [C]oming out at camp to my annual camper friends was one of the most amazing and welcoming coming-out experiences of my life. I constantly wish that RCRC was year-round because it truly gives campers like me a sense of belonging, adventure, and spontaneity, all at once. I couldn't imagine the person I would be without it.

It’s a tough time to ask for your support because we know that a lot of people are struggling in the midst of the pandemic. If you can’t give right now, we understand completely. But if you are in a position to offer your support, would you donate today?
